Benazir was assassinated on 27th Dec. 13 years ago (Video and Text)

ISLAMABAD: First ever female prime minister of Pakistan – who also happened to be the first Muslim premier ever – was assassinated after addressing an electoral rally at Rawalpindi’s Liaquat Bagh on 27th December 2007.

Chairman PPP-P Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has paid glowing tributes to Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto on her 13th martyrdom anniversary.

He said that though she was not physically with us,  she continued to be the unifying and binding force for democratic forces and guiding light for the Party leaders and workers. Bilawal Bhutto said that Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir remained a model daughter, sister, wife, mother and ruler of hearts in the Islamic world.

Bilawal Bhutto said that from bringing in ballistic missile technology to strengthening national defense, from provision of land to landless women farmers to the establishment of First Women Bank, to establishing separate women police stations to introducing anti-polio vaccination, creating employment opportunities, striving for basic freedoms for the people, she spent every moment of her life for working for the nation and its poor citizens, youth, children, and women as well.

He said that Benazir Bhutto struggled for the rights of downtrodden masses, empowerment of women and the marginalized, braving solitary confinement, imprisonment, victimization and character-assassinations: “The forces of darkness finally killed her through a conspiracy but they couldn’t defeat her even, after her martyrdom,” he added.

Bilawal Bhutto pledged the mission of  Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto would continue. He asked the party workers to get ready for a grand struggle for the restoration of true democracy, the supremacy of the Constitution and the Parliament together with full empowerment of the people of the country. | YouTube Channel
