Benazir Bhutto

In a recent interview, ex-Prime Minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto compared the situation of Karachi when she was the Prime Minister with the present situation as well as the times of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Even though a lot of innocents were subjected to torture and violence, we all remember the way the PPP goverment tackled the ‘MQM’ crisis back in their days. In the interview, she has made claims of ‘highest employment’ levels during her times and we have no doubt that indeed a lot of people were given jobs at the expense of inefficiency of firms because the recruitment was not on merit rather on ‘parchee’.
I found this interview interesting and hence sharing it with you lot. It talks about a lot of important issues of our times. I am expecting an active debate on the responses of Benazir Bhutto because clearly, she is the next Prime Minister of Pakistan *whever we have so called free & fair elections*.

For people only interested in Karachi do not watch other parts as they have little to do with karachi.

Part 2

Movie Length: 08:13

Part 3

Movie Length: 08:59

Part 4

Movie Length: 08:53

Part 5

Movie Length: 09:57

Note: I do understand that this is not a political forum, but I believe for Karachi or Pakistan, these issues are more important than an opening of a new restaurant or eating hot gulaab jamans in the rain.

    I dont really fancy her being prime minister,pakistani’s seem to have forgotten how Benazir and nawaz have looted Pakistan’s money and have got corruption written all over their foreheads.No please let them stay out of Pakistan otherwise the country will get even more F**ked then it already was before Musharaf took over,Thanks to President Pervez musharaf Pakistan is what it is today.I pray he stays president forever.Ameen

    PS:I am not interested in politics,neither do i want to start a political debate but one thing i do know is that Pakistan can only advance because of Musharaf not with the gruesome twosome.

    She hasn’t changed a bit…No Answer was given to the point. All Bullshit answers..LONG and inclusive. Thank God she is gone from our goverment.

    Recently you posted an interview from Musharraf and he atleast talks to the point and calls a spade a spade.

    It would be a huge slap on every pakistanis face if this bitch or nawaz comes to power again. i cannot even comprehend why would any pakistani want her back in power.


  5. Mona (unregistered) on October 17th, 2006 @ 2:03 am

    God forbids they ever come into power!


  6. IllusionFS (unregistered) on October 17th, 2006 @ 2:13 am

    My understanding is that all of you are reside outside Pakistan because its 2 AM in Pakistan and tomorrows a working week.

    It would be great if people could tell if they are from Pakistan or not to develop a better concensus of how we all think.

    Cheers

    well i am in California.


  8. Faisal (unregistered) on October 17th, 2006 @ 2:43 am

    In California as well and talking about calling a spade a spade, one has to admit that no matter what, the People’s Party does have popular support. Chalk it up to ignorance, illiteracy and outright “jiyalapan”.

    One has to give the devil his due.

    Difference btw bibi & dictator mushy is that bibi got 2.5 year rule to loote pakistan and mushy got full 7 year of freedom for corruption (only Allah knows when he stop looting) …All are corrupt but i do agree with Captain’s log that give chance to democracy(not like mushy parliment) then afer 10-15 we able to see leaders like imran khan & Namatiulah khan in power…other wise in dictator rule vicious circle of corruption goes on..

    i will never forgive her as a Pakistani and a Karachiette for all the wrongs she did esp letting the murder of her brother take place in cold blood when she was the PM


  11. kidal (unregistered) on October 17th, 2006 @ 4:05 am

    If we re elect her, we deserve her and all that she will do.

    The question is, what’s the alternative?


  12. Aussie_Paki (unregistered) on October 17th, 2006 @ 4:55 am

    @Kidal

    She will take the money and fill her dubai bank accounts this time round – just for a change from the swiss banks –

    Heavens forbidden, I hope she doesnt come back and neither does Nawaz Sharif. Musharaff Zindabad, Pakistan Zindabad.


  13. Faisal siddiqui (unregistered) on October 17th, 2006 @ 5:16 am

    Guys

    we all know Musharraf is no saint but we have to agree that he has done a lot for pakistan. he might be corrupt but i dont think he is on the same level as nawaz or benazir. we all know how Pakistan improvred in the last 6 years.

    I hope Allah guides Mushy in the right path and bless Pakistan.


  14. d0ct0r (unregistered) on October 17th, 2006 @ 6:05 am

    well all you Mushy fans just wait and watch how she is comming back to pakistan… Though am not a ppp supporter but it seems BB/ppp would be in power after next elections… and your very own Mush will make sure it happens …. deal is very much in the offing….


  15. Abdul Sami (unregistered) on October 17th, 2006 @ 7:31 am

    Raiwind Palace, Surrey Palace…… what’s next?


  16. Captain's Log (unregistered) on October 17th, 2006 @ 8:12 am

    Okay , she must did some thing wrong (okay many things wrong) but you have to see that she is still trying to come in power, she is willing to go to people, she is willing to answer the people unlike dictators who would run away and would never come back. Why Pakistanis have seem to forget bibi/sharifs ?? Because of dictatorship. I am sure if Mush had not taken over in 1999 then neither bibi nor sharif would have got enough votes and they would had to agree on some one like Imran Khan or who ever.But now after so many years , people have forget every thing what bibi did and that’s only due to dictatorship.

    Sorry too tired to write tonight but I am sure that we would have true democracy one day if we just allow politicians.

    I am also in pacific time zone by the way :-)

    It is impossible to think not of corruption and injustice with current leaders (political or otherwise). Opposition and Government are behaving in similar fashion, debating on non-issues in public and sharing a laugh in private parties.

    Both BB and NS got two terms but they miserabely failed, getting worse by the day. What we need in Pakistan is:

    A) A dictatorship, one man show, ruling with steel hand (from Pakistan Steel Mills), crushing each and every opposition, Hitler and Stalin style.

    OR

    B)A system based on Islamic princples of Shura where leaders are truly accountable of their deeds and any common person can stand up and criticize without fear of getting vanished the next day. We have plenty of good people amongst us, in every walk of life. All we need is a just system that supports them to come forward and build the country.

    It will be musharraf himself who brings back bib, just as he has brought back all the same old faces into government. Corruption is the name of the whole game, pakistan is a big pie, so why shouldn’t everyone get an equal share.


  20. Tariq (unregistered) on October 17th, 2006 @ 11:49 am

    I meant “bibi” and not “bib”.


  21. mansoor (unregistered) on October 17th, 2006 @ 11:57 am

    NNNNOOOOO!! not her again!!!!!!! :( i dont want her back!!!


  22. suhail (unregistered) on October 17th, 2006 @ 12:26 pm

    Come on folks… BB and NS are legends now. Get over them, they will be remembered with love and hatred by some people and that’s it. Its history. lets think of future. its a waste of time talking about them….oooppsss paradoxically i wasted 5 minutes too ;-)


  23. Abdul Sami (unregistered) on October 17th, 2006 @ 2:11 pm

    i can only tolerate Nawaz if he let go of his transplants. Missing days when we used to call him u know what…..


  24. Hassan (unregistered) on October 17th, 2006 @ 9:24 pm

    WoW!!! I never realized we had been so fortunate to have Benazir and her father’s governments. But to be honest we really don’t deserve any of these “Saints” …. and the “poor” thing is so persecuted not only by Pakistan’s military but also by interpol and the rest of govts. of this world, we can’t even count the number of conspiracies hatched against her and her all so innocent husband.
    ArrRRggGGGggghhHHHHH! How can she sit there and tell one lie after another, absolutely no deen or emaan or even character. I wonder if she actually believes the bullcrap she is trying to feed the Pakistanis?

    Why do we think democracy is for every one? Democracy is a western idea where masses elect their leaders. In our case masses (80% of our population) follow one vadera, sardar or jageerdar who provide them living and make sure that their pockets stay full and their people poor and illiterate so they have plenty of labor resources availabe generation after generation.
    Our problem with democracy is that we have educated class as minority and that’s why we can never have a successful democracy in Pakistan as long as we have these lords.
    Get rid of them and make education accessible to every class like India did and than preach democracy. Meanwhile leave Mushi and his team to dictate they might not be 100% competent but so far they are doing their job better than others.

    WHEN WILL PAKISTAN LEARN? – IF YOU HAVE CRIMINALS RUNNING YOUR COUNTRY – YOU WILL REMAIN ONE OF THE WORLDS CORRUPT AND BACKWARD NATIONS…..FOREVER.

    Do you think we the educated classes are any better, The educated are the worst. A classic example is the way we behave on the roads in Pakistan.

    From Benazir I remember there is this photo of her in which she is wearing a very short skirt. This photo has also caused great controversy in the high ranks of the PPPP. Is it all really true.
    some of her pics are on flickr.com

    Why doesnt this psycho bitch die already?? as a karachiite back in her day i remember how bad she was for the city, for women, for pakistan……if you cant control your spouse when he is a total criminal how can you be priminister? Luckily you can get elected by a bunch of semiliterate feudal shits and their slaves. Screw democracy – i love mush. When the education rate improves, when people learn how to spell accountability – then we’ll need demoncracy , not a sec sooner.
