62nd birth anniversary of Benazir Bhutto being observed today

The top leadership of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has reached Larkana to pay tribute to their martyred leader.

Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari paid tribute to Shaheed Benazir Bhutto on her 62nd birth anniversary and pledged to pick the thread of her struggle for democratic and an egalitarian Pakistan she left at Liaquat Bagh Rawalpindi on the evening of December 27, 2007.


“Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto lives on in every home in the form of nation’s daughters, sisters and mothers and each of them will carry her legacy forward,” Bilawal said in a message released by Bilawal House Media Cell.

The PPP Chairman said his mother fought against dictatorial regimes with bravery. She lived and died for her people and country.


She laid down her life for a cause to emancipate the people from exploitation and give them equal rights, he added.

“Her father Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto gave the nation nuclear power and she founded missile system to make defence of Pakistan invincible, though both accepted martyrdom as a price in dictatorial regimes,” he added.


The Bhutto dynasty has had a turbulent history, reflecting Pakistan’s own rises and falls in past decades. Bilawal’s grandfather, the founder of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), was hanged by a former military ruler in 1979.


The PPP ruled Pakistan from 2008 to 2013 until it was voted out in a landmark election that marked the first time in Pakistan’s military coup-prone history one elected civilian government replaced another.


Benazir was assassinated in a gun and bomb attack after holding an election rally in the city of Rawalpindi in 2007. At least 180 people were killed that day.


Benazir Bhutto’s killer has never been caught and a U.N. inquiry found that Pakistani authorities had failed to protect her or properly investigate her death. The United Nations also said that high-ranking Pakistani officials had tried to block its investigation.
