in reply to PHP or Python or other language? which is better career choice along with Perl and Java?

This may not be what you asked for but I'm going to tell you it anyway: as long as you are a good programmer and as long as you can write in at least a couple of modern languages, it doesn't matter very much what language you learn next.

In my experience employers are looking for intelligent people with a good general knowledge and the ability to learn new stuff quickly. A programming language is just a particular type of stuff from this point of view.

Also in my experience: I didn't really know Perl when I applied for a job which required Perl programming. I got the job and I quickly learned Perl.

Executive summary: keep learning all sorts of stuff and sell your intelligence, ability to learn useful things quickly and then to use them in practice.
