The book “Zinda Tareekh” is written by veteran politician Makhdoom Javed Hashmi.

“He is one of those politicians whose past and present are spotless and his personality is a role model for youth,” he added.
The Chairman Senate said all political parties should take notice of the fact that at present, religion is being used for political agenda which is not good for the future of the Pakistan. He said Pakistan came into being on Islamic ideology.
“If over 80 per cent population in the country is Muslim and according to the constitution, the religion of state is Islam, then from whom Islam is in danger in Pakistan”, Raza Rabbani questioned.
