Zardari pays glowing tributes to Hafeez Pirzada

Islamabad: Former President Asif Ali Zardari has expressed profound grief and sorrow over the death of Abdul Hafeez Pirzada describing the ex-federal minister in the cabinet of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto as an eminent jurist and constitutional lawyer of great acumen.

Abdul Hafeez Pirzada died in London on Tuesday. Paying tributes, the former president said that Hafeez Pirzada was one of the most prominent and widely respected architects of the unanimous Constitution of 1973 that has guided the nation’s destiny for the past over four decades.

Late Abdul Hafiz has earned a place of pride in the history of constitutional development in Pakistan for which he will always be remembered with respect and admiration, he said.

Later Abdul Hafeez Pirzada excelled in everything he did in life whether in politics or in legal profession or in the drafting of the constitution, the former president said. In the pursuit of his goals Hafeez Pirzada exuded great confidence, unbounded energy and remarkable strength. May Allah rest his soul in eternal peace and grant patience to the members of the bereaved family to bear the loss with fortitude, he prayed.
