Remembering Benazir Bhutto
Sargodha: 27 December 2018
December 27, 2018 marks the 11th death anniversary of Benazir Bhutto, who was not only a popular democratic leader of Pakistan but also a source of pride and strength for Muslims of the world. A charismatic woman, she went about articulating the collective human desire for global peace and progress during her proactive political career from the 80’s through the 90’s until the fateful day of December 27, 2007. As the Muslim world’s first woman prime minister, Benazir Bhutto was a living proof of a Muslim nation’s willingness to be elected by a woman leader—a reality that is yet to be realized in much of the liberal world. She was a testimony of Islam’s compatibility with democracy and gender equality, and an advocate for reconciliation between Islamic and non-Islamic societies. A graduate of Harvard and Oxford, also elected as President of Oxford Union, Benazir Bhutto led Pakistan’s democratic struggle for almost three decades
