“Our family has always chosen death before dishonor,” says Bakhtawar

KARACHI: Daughter of former premier Benazir Bhuto, Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari tweeted on Friday, “our family has always chosen death before dishonor. We WILL fight and we WILL win.”

Shortly after the names of Asif Ali Zardari, Bilawal Bhutto, Faryal Talpur and other bigwigs of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) were placed on the Exit Control List (ECL) today, the budding politician, Bakhtawar, reacted on her official Twitter account and said, “These intimidation tactics will not work.”

She criticized the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government, saying, “the selected PTI (not courts) announced and placed my brother on the exit control list yesterday. My father & aunt are also on the ECL. All three are elected representatives.”

Calling the mandate of the federal government unlawful, Bakhtawar remarked, “By suppressing & coercing the opposition the PTI will still not be able to hide their illegitimate mandate.”

The PPP leader further stated, “The cabinet full of Musharraf remnants obviously doesn’t remember that our family has always chosen death before dishonor.”

“We WILL fight and we WILL win,” she added.

Earlier today, the federal government placed the names of Asif Ali Zardari, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Faryal Talpur and 169 others on the ECL over their alleged involvement in fake bank accounts and money laundering cases.

The development comes a day after the federal cabinet decided to places the names of 172 accused in the mega money laundering scam on the no-fly list.

Other accused whose names have been placed on the ECL include Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, former chief minister Qaim Ali Shah, PPP leaders Sohail Anwar Siyal, Imtiaz Sheikh, Ali Hassan Zardari, Manzoor Kaka, Sohail Rajput, Omni Group chairman Anwar Majeed, and his son Nimar Majeed.
