Bhutto’s judicial murder was a conspiracy against Pakistan: Zardari

Says Bhutto's philosophy and mission are in strong hands of the young Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari.

ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari has said that the judicial murder of PPP founder and the first democratically elected prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was a conspiracy against democracy and independence of Pakistan.

He stated this in a statement on the 45th death anniversary of Mr Bhutto who was hanged by military dictator Gen Ziaul Haq on April 4, 1979.

He rebuilt Pakistan as a prestigious country among the comity of nations and taught the people to live with pride. He taught the people to speak up for their rights and to hold their heads high.

Quaid-e-Awam was the one who wanted Pakistan to be a nuclear country so that we could become a developed nation with regard to health, energy and agriculture. Pakistan was on the track of prosperity and the aim of his judicial murder was to hinder the country’s progress.

President Zardari said Mr Bhutto spent his whole life working for the promotion of democracy and basic rights of the masses. He rebuilt Pakistan after the 1971 war when the people were demoralized.

“The mission of Benazir Bhutto was to keep alive the philosophy of the Quaid-e-Awam and the hope for the downtrodden masses of the country. The same philosophy and mission are in the strong hands of the young Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari,” he added.
