There is talk of the Pak president removing the prime minister and/or a military dictated removal of the president.

Banana repblic galore.

However, it is worthwhile to review the violence, terrorism, war and hatred promoted by her and her father.

Zulfikar Ali Bhutto played a pivotal political role that led to the break up of Pakistan in 1971. While his mental agression led to the crisis and genocide, the generals and soldiers of the Pakistan army implemented the physical violence and slaughtered millions of Bengali muslims. Pakistanis still peddle around myths –frankly blatant lies–about 1971 war saying it was a civil war. May be. It was a civil war, but it was mostly slaughtering of unarmed Bengali Hindus and muslims perpetrated by Pak army.

After the defeat and capture of 90,000 Pakistani POWs, Indira Gandhi and Indian strtegists wanted him to agree to Line of Control in Kashmir as international border at Shimla. With American backing, Z.A.Bhutto played a soft statesman and pleaded to India/Indira that would be too humiliating.

Soon after returning to Pak, he declared Pakistan (1) will develop nuclear weapons (2) even if that means they have to eat grass. It is very important to note he and his country have accomplished both goals.

His daughter Benzir Bhutto declared after becoming PM, she is ready to wage a 1000 year war with India. Alas, she didn’t even live to be 60.

The merits and demerits of the Kashmiri muslims fighting Indian forces for “freedom” is a separate story. Attacking govt installations and armed forces in one story. But mostly the “freedom struggle” consisted of bombing, and slaughtering civilians both Hindus and Muslims in Kashmir valley, Jammu and elsewhere. This freedom struggle consisted of genocide and expulsion of Kashmiri Hindus from their ancestral homeland.

Ms.Benazir Bhutto vigorously supported and cheered on this “freedom struggle”.

That’s the very brief summary of the violence, terrorism, war and hatred promoted by Benazir Bhutto and her father.May Benazir Bhutto’s soul rest in peace.

Voice of democracy? Her family had practiced nepotism throughout PPP’s existence and she declared herself Chairman for LIFE! Her PPP isn’t a democratic party its a family heirloom now belonging to her son.

Moderate Islam? She gave tacit support for the Taliban and did nothing to curb sectarian violence.

(Some religious nuts in Pakistan will call her a Shia Kafir and hence disqualify her from anything remotely related to Islam. Which is just wrong,irrational,twisted and bigoted and we need to put these extremist nuts in their place. And the reasons the Army and militants had against her were also sickening and they too must be put in their place. The culture of hating another ethnicity, religious sect and feminine gender in Pakistan MUST END.)

Do people suffer from dementia when it comes to Pakistan’s leaders? There’s not a single saint amongst them yet people display an incredible slave fervor of sainthood worship for these despots.

Right now, all I want is a full truthful investigation. I do care who killed my ex-prime minister. She deserved a prime ministerial burial despite my negative feelings for her. It was partly her party members fault by not realizing the unprincipled symbolism sent using their party flag to adorn her casket instead of a Pakistani flag. But the ultimate responsibility lied with the Army.

Ask Gul, great username! lol. Hamid Gul is the poster child of everything wrong with Pakistan. Sadly most dumbed down people will believe him.

By: Ali Hassan Mon, 29 Dec 2008 04:49:22 +0000 You have just chosen the sensational coverage of the anniversary. In reality most Pakistanis have remembered the death of Benazir Bhutto with more nuanced and sober reccolections than what you portray. See, for example: r-bhutto-assasination-anniversary/

By: Ask Gul, he knows everything Sun, 28 Dec 2008 01:51:43 +0000 Ask ‘General’ Hamid Gul, he will either say it was an ”
inside job”, or it was the work of “Mosad” or “CIA” or “RAW”. Such an insightful man is he…I am surprised that there is no peace in the world already with his school of explanations.

By: The Indian Sat, 27 Dec 2008 21:45:50 +0000 Sincerely,
May her soul rest in peace. Pakistan has lost one good Politician.

By: indian1127 Sat, 27 Dec 2008 20:35:09 +0000 Benazir was intrumental in the decline of Punjab (indian) militancy, it her meeting with rajiv gandhi that made a policy change possible. She could have made a difference.

With her out of the way there is hardly a moderate leader around, even those who are moderate cant look too moderate in the face of opposition from the radical islamic elements in pakistan.

Her legacy may end with her, and her assasination will be another one of those numerous unsloved political murders.
