Sindh govt announces public holiday on April 4
KARACHI: The government of Sindh has declared public holiday on April 4 (Tuesday) in the province on account of death anniversary of Pakistan People’s Party Founder (PPP) Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.
The notification is issued by Chief Secretary Sindh Rizwan Memon.
Zulfiqar Bhutto was charged on a murder case – which is questioned by many political circles till date – and he was subsequently hanged on 4th April 1979 in a trial after the Supreme Court of Pakistan upheld the capital punishment sentence awarded by the Lahore High Court.
He was laid to rest at Garhi Khuda Bakhsh in his native Larkana district where his wife and children are buried as well.
