Delay in UN report and Fatima Bhutto waiting for justice.–>Does PPP respect Bhutto legacy or they just cash it?
We have seen PPP as a feudal party always cahsing the emotions of people by playing democracy and shaheed cards. Both the cards are played over the legacy left by Bhutto family starting from Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. Recent elections were another occasion where they cashed the Bhutto shaheed card but this time it was Benazir Bhutto’s murder which gave them votes and paved way for Zardari and team to takeover the country.
Benazir murder never got importance in PPP government and proper FIR wasn’t registered after a long time. A UN commission without any mendate to pin point anyone was set for fact finding.
Now when the commission was about to deliver the final report it was stopped by government of Pakistan to do so, Why and Who they are trying to protect?
On the other hand another Bhutto (Fatima) is demanding justice for the murder of her father Murtaza bhutto and it doesn’t look possible in the presence of current PPP government founded by the father of Murtaza Bhutto.
‘My father’s killers leading nation’
KARACHI – Fatima Bhutto, daughter of late Mir Murtaza Bhutto, has said those, who orchestrated the crime of assassination of her father, are currently leading the nation.
She was addressing the launching ceremony of her book ‘Songs of Blood and Sword’, held at Clifton Gardens here on Tuesday.
Political leaders, diplomats, writers and people from all walks of life attended the function.
Mir Murtaza Bhutto’s widow and Chairperson of PPP-Shaheed Bhutto, Ghinwa Bhutto, welcomed the guests, while Fatima’s younger brother Zulfikar Bhutto Junior and her cousin (Shahanwaz Bhutto’s daughter) Sassi Bhutto also accompanied her.
Fatima, wearing green dress, revealed the story of her father’s assassination which took place 14 years ago near her house, 70 Clifton, saying that her father was shot several times and the bullet that had killed him was fired at point-blank range.
Giving details about the tragic incident, she said 14 years ago seven men were murdered near her house.
“The streetlights went off and roads leading to 70 Clifton were blocked by heavy contingents of police who were waiting to kill my father,” she added.
Without taking name of President Asif Ali Zardari, Pakistan’s most outspoken political commentator and granddaughter of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Fatima Bhutto said the man, who orchestrated the crime of killing her father, is presently leading the nation.
However, the police officers and other people who were charged in my father’s murder have been released due to the flaws in the system, and won national medals, she said.
