Bhutto_Benazir.jpg

It is without doubt that an entire nation actually sheds a tear on the death of Benazir Bhutto, she was a hero to many, and rival to others, but the bottom line is that she was a brave leader of our nation and her struggles for democracy will not go unremembered. May Her Soul Rest in Peace.

In an attempt to provide the online community and opportunity to offer their condolences to the grieving family and literally thousands of Peoples Party supporters. I would like to initiate this condolence book for Benazir Bhutto. I will make it my own responsibility to present the entire list to the offices of the Pakistan Peoples Party to be attached with the main condolence book.

Please pay your respects here or preferably on my blog

    Truly its a sad day in the history of Pakistan. Lets pray good leadership emerges in PPP. BB is dead and now there is a chance for PPP to practice true democracy in its party and ELECT a leader rather a successor of BB.

    Condolences to the people of Pakistan, not only BB’s children but also the families of the people killed today and injured, and the 150 killed and more injured when she first returned “home” to Pakistan.

    I am writing from California as an American, but I was in Kashmir in 1989 as a young married woman when the Bund and troubles there started against India, just after Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated for being too pro-Muslim and Pakistani, it was said by the assassins. His fault was that he wanted to hold talks to prevent the bloodshed that has since ensued in Kashmir, for almost 20 years now. We were the last foreigners to leave Kashmir at that time, my houseboat man and his son had to walk us and our luggage to the airport miles away because no taxis would take us, then go by Indian military convoy to the airport. What a sad ending to several beautiful days on Dal Lake. A reminder that in that part of the world, beauty can suddenly be shattered by this violence and I pray it stops, as also in the Middle East.

    About Rizwan’s comments about USA and Afghanistan and Mujahadeen: yes, we were believing then that the Muhahadeen were noble fighters getting rid of the Russian invaders, and in truth, it is Russians who started the mess, not America. What were they doing there? Their invasion all went back to the “Great Game” that was played between Britain/Russia in the previous century, and now, China is on on the terrorial battle, too. If Russia hadn’t invaded Afghanistan, America would have had no reason or motivation to support the Mujahadeen to drive them out.

    Of course, knowing what we know now, we wouldn’t have. But then, even the Kashmiri jeweler who came to our houseboat to sell us jewelry promised us that all profits would go to “help the Mujahadeen,” and while we knew this was not true (Kashmiri salesmen being what they are), the fact is, no one suspected they would morph into Al Qaeda or the terrorists we have now. So yes, USA is part of the puzzle, but we’ve all paid enough — it is Russia who really started the mess again.

    One good idea from Rizwan: Get the Mullahs to be licensed by theological schools, as Christians must be to preach: Catholic priests, Protestant pastors of all sects (Methodists, Presbyterians, etc.) must graduate from a graduate-level program. The Christian exceptions are some “evangelicals” and fire-and-brimstone preachers who appeal to the uneducated and impressionable. It sounds similar in Muslim countries except FAR worse: as you say, some 80% of the people get all their “education” from these Mullahs, and some schools give youths the only real meals and warmth they receive. The government must stop this and regulate the Mullahs so they don’t turn the poor into Jihadis based on their false and ignorant teachings.

    @julia and @rizwan:
    Just FYI: mujahideen fought for two years wid out any aid untill USA realized that they can be handy if usa aid them and kick russia out.

    So after two year, usa started supplying them, the weapons.

    “it is Russia who really started the mess again.”
    But this time, its USA who has started the mess.
    They attacked Afghnistan and iraq for wat???

    please abtrain from lame reasons

    All Mushraf haters did you see how Bush looked today? You know why he was so pissed? Because may be Bhutto promised him free entry to frontier areas and access to Pakistani hero Abdul Qadir?
    The whole media of USA cried over Bhutto’s death and they acted like a cry baby over the 10 billion given to Mushraf. Now does that tell you some thing about Mushraf ?
    Mushraf is smart thats why he is hated. If he takes his head out of his car’s sunroof he will be gone before you know. But he is smart and understands Pakistan needs him. Get your facts straight and act responsible and civilized or lose your country.
    America spent trillion dollars and lost 3500 plus solders in fight with extremists and they want Pakistan to do the same job with 10 billion dollars?
    Also before they gave money to Pakistan they knew corruption in Pakistan Government they should have given 12 billion dollars , 2 billion for corrupt elements , they should have been factored in.
    truth is truth if it hurts so what ? Also yes extremist must exit from Pakistan at any cost I personally support that but Pakistan need more money and more weapons and more equipments.And this is the truth.


  7. Rizwan (unregistered) on December 28th, 2007 @ 12:35 pm

    Julie Russia was defeated by USA and Mujahdeens with the help of Pakistan, USA created Osama and other groups leaving behind that mess became jihadies. Admit if USA had stayed their longer to bring the prosperity to the people of Afghanistan, Then all the poor people should have not joined al-qaeda.
    Anyways mistakes are made but blaming Pakistan for the mess is unfair this is unfair that Pakistan is their when asked for help later all USA fingers goes on Pakistan , How long USA will fool people of Pakistan?
    In other hand thanks for liking my idea of going after extremists. For that support this idea by going to longlivepakistan.com

    The Daughter of the East was killed by the bullet of a coward of a tortured, misguided and broken Nation. Will this stop Pakistan from marching forward towards democracy? The courage of Benazir Bhutto (described as “reckless” by the People of Pakistan) showed otherwise. Her courage & refusal to allow assasins to dictate the course of her country made this lady the most outstanding leader of this region. Knowing she was a target of extremists, for her country this daughter gave her LIFE.

    One of her last quotes given to CNN should live in the hearts and minds of men, as a testament of her courage. “Don’t blame the victim for the crime”, she said.

    THIS IS THE LESSON I LEARNED
    YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOU’VE GOT TILL ITS GONE.

    Bhutto said Musharraf failed to protect her email WASHINGTON, Dec 28 (AFP):

    Slain PPP leader Benazir Bhutto blamed President Pervez Musharraf for failing to protect her in the volatile months preceding her assassination, an email released by US media Thursday showed. If harmed in Pakistan, “I wld (would) hold Musharaf (sic) responsible,” Bhutto wrote in the October email, revealed on air by CNN journalist Wolf Blitzer, who received it from Bhutto’s friend and US spokesman Mark Siegel. “I have been made to feel insecure by his minions,” Bhutto wrote of Musharraf, detailing security measures which she said were not granted her after her return. “There is no way what is happening in terms of stopping me from taking private cars or using tinted windows or giving jammers or four police mobiles to cover all sides cld (could) happen without him.” Siegel told the channel that Bhutto had asked authorities to provide protection including a four-car police escort and jamming devices against bombs, but had not received them. The news channel revealed the email hours after Bhutto, 54, was killed in a suicide attack. (Posted @ 09:50 PST)

    I SICERELY HOPE THAT MUSHARAF AND ALL THE GENERALS OF PAKISTAN MEET THE SAME FATE AS THE BHUTTO FAMILY.

    I HAVE THE SAME PRAYER FOR BILAL MUSHARAF AND THE DAUGHTER OF MUSHARAF AS WELL AS ZIA’ S FAMILY AND AYUB KHANS FAMILY.

    EXAMPLES OF PUNISHMENT AND VANDETTA HAVE BEEN SET FOR POLITICIANS, JUDGES, BEAUROCRACY AND THE CIVIL SOCIETY.

    ZA BHUTTO AND BENAZIR LAID DOWN THEIR LIVES FOR PAKISTAN, LOOK AT WHAT THIS ARMY DID TO QADEER KHAN, THE CHIEF JUSTICE, THE MEDIA, BHUTTO FAMILY, NAWAZ SHARIF AND THE LIST IS ENDLESS.

    IT IS ONLY THE GENERALS OF PAKISTAN AND THEIR FAMILIES THAT HAVE REMAINED ABOVE THE LAW AND UNTOUCHABLE.

    90,000 ARMY SOILDERS SURRENDERED IN DACCA AND NONE WERE HANGED, AYUB, ZIA AND MUSHARAF DESTROYED THE COUNTRY AND NON OF THESE DICTATORS WERE HANGED.

    THE CHILDREN OF THESE DICTATORS ARE THE RICHEST AND MOST INFLUENTIAL IN THE COUNTRY AND NONE OF THEM IS HELD ACCOUNTABLE.

    NOW IS THE TIME THAT SOMETHING BE DONE OTHERWISE IF THESE GENERALS AND ARMY STILL CONTINUE TO RULE THAN SIMPLY FORGET PAKISTAN.

    WILL WE AS A NATION REMAIN SUBSERVIANT TO THIS CORRUPT AND USELESS ARMY OR WILL WE TAKE THEM TO TASK?

    Paksitan would not survive if there was no God. God does things for reasons. After hearing American TV coverage yesterday many questions come in mind. Many people in the streets do not understand things going on international level.
    But the one understands find things are happening based on circumstances surrounded around Pakistan.Rulers are given Job to do by God and if they truly understand their duty some times they have to make decisions which are not popular but they know better. All we have to do is trust them.
    One thing is very clear that enemy of Pakistan wants to see Pakistan destabilized and they are happy to see that happening. I am afraid If we do not put our acts together and do not understand International politics , we will be history soon.Every word spoken on this board by a Pakistani Citizen should be in the lines with the interest of Pakistan.
    Once we reach to this level we will be fine.

    The whole media of USA cried over Bhutto’s death

    Trust me hardly anyone would shed tears on death of moronic Musharraf. Maybe his partner in crimes and corrupt generals suffer but not Pakistanis.

    Death is inevitable. One day Musharraf will also die.

    Benazir Bhutto’s service to Pakistan may have been marred by controversy, but she was a martyr in the end, wasn’t she? My condolences to all who placed their hopes for the future on Benazir Bhutto. Such a one as she will not be seen again in southeast Asia.

    Hail and Farewell to former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto! With a background both Eastern and Western, she set the example for women’s political leadership throughout the Islamic world. May she rest in the peace of God; and may her memory be eternal. Sincere condolences to her family, friends and supporters…


  26. d0ct0r (unregistered) on December 29th, 2007 @ 3:26 am

    Mark Steyn :
    “Benazir Bhutto’s return to Pakistan had a mad recklessness about it which give today’s events a horrible inevitability. As I always say when I’m asked about her, she was my next-door neighbor for a while – which affects a kind of intimacy, though in fact I knew her only for sidewalk pleasantries. She was beautiful and charming and sophisticated and smart and modern, and everything we in the west would like a Muslim leader to be – though in practice, as Pakistan’s Prime Minister, she was just another grubby wardheeler from one of the world’s most corrupt political classes.

    Since her last spell in power, Pakistan has changed, profoundly. Its sovereignty is meaningless in increasingly significant chunks of its territory, and, within the portions Musharraf is just about holding together, to an ever more radicalized generation of young Muslim men Miss Bhutto was entirely unacceptable as the leader of their nation. “Everyone’s an expert on Pakistan, a faraway country of which we know everything,” I wrote last month. “It seems to me a certain humility is appropriate.” The State Department geniuses thought they had it all figured out. They’d arranged a shotgun marriage between the Bhutto and Sharif factions as a “united” “democratic” “movement” and were pushing Musharraf to reach a deal with them. That’s what diplomats do: They find guys in suits and get ’em round a table. But none of those representatives represents the rapidly evolving reality of Pakistan. Miss Bhutto could never have been a viable leader of a post-Musharraf settlement, and the delusion that she could have been sent her to her death. Earlier this year, I had an argument with an old (infidel) boyfriend of Benazir’s, who swatted my concerns aside with the sweeping claim that “the whole of the western world” was behind her. On the streets of Islamabad, that and a dime’ll get you a cup of coffee.

    As I said, she was everything we in the west would like a Muslim leader to be. We should be modest enough to acknowledge when reality conflicts with our illusions. Rest in peace, Benazir.”

    What goes around, comes around

    BB was responsible for massacre of Pakistanis living in Karachi and Hyderabad. How can we forget that. Pakka Qila operation.

    upto now, the political activists have been sacrificing their lives its time the political leaders give the sacrifice. Altaf Hussain should follow the path of BB and so should Nawaz and Fazlu and Chaudries and the corrupt generals. Then we would have fresh air to breath. Its so poluted with them!!!

    There are volumes written in these blogs and I am sure more will be written. The fact is that if you liked or disliked Miss Bhutto, her death should not be a reason to end a life of a mother who will be survived by her children.
    The people of Pakistan should unite and insist that their country move into the new world with proper education, keeping their religion practises ALL people despite their ethnic bacground or religious beliefs can live in PEACE.
    Pakistanis are talented educated men and women that have so much to offer the world, this is the time to show us that inspite of the loss they can hold their head up high and make Pakistan proudn.

    My deepest condilences to the family of Benazir! I never expected that someone could raise hand on her even in the Moslem world. The world has become emptier without her brightness…Her life has become an epoch in world history.

    May her soul rest in peace.. she was a gr8 leader and she was a human and human’s do commit mistakes…. Pakistan at present does not have any highly educated leader like Benazir who was the daughter of the master mind Z.A. Bhutto… May Allah give patience to her children… It was simply a plan to finish the entire Bhutto Family and now i reallly wish tht Bilawal doesnt enter in politics as Bhutto family has suffered a lot now they deserve peaceful lives instead of PAKISTANI POLITICAL life!! Luv u Benazir u were my dream woman … I and the whole world will miss u.. ur smile.. ur passion for ur country!!

    At last the mosharaf – servant of the U.S.A in pakistan – took the oposition’s life. this is how the U.S.A want to create the world of peace.
    yes, It’s really horrible to see the daughter’s death after father’s execution. there’s no god to bless the bhutto, it’s we who must change the world.
    There’s nothing more to do with pacifism or reformism. Let’s rally to end the imperialism.
    May we can “unite the human race.”

  36. Yousif Solangi (unregistered) on January 2nd, 2008 @ 1:38 pm

    I don’t know how I can express my feelings right now. I am so shocked to find out that she was no more. I still can’t believe the fact that she is no more. Words aren’t enough to express the sorrow I feel.
    We have lost a great charismatic leader after Quaid-e-Awam (Zoolfiqar Ali Bhutto) who was the last scion of a political dynasty. May her soul rest in peace. (Jant-ul-Firdous). and Allah gives us enough courage to move forward in the fight of democracy.

    We still cannot come to terms with the fact that such a charismatic and prominent leader of the country is no more. Deeply shocked and saddened we are and have been for the past 4 days.

    Keeping her political policies aside, she was a brave and courageous woman (Daughter of Sindh)
    who brought hope in the hearts of everyone in Pakistan.

    My deepest condolences for the irreparable loss to Bilawal, Bakhtawar, Asifa, Sanam, Fatima,& the rest of the family; as well as the entire nation and the PPP workers.

    Although I was never a fan of Ms. Bhutto all I can say is she is now with God and as the Quran clearly says “All judgment rests with God alone”. May her soul rest in peace since none of us are without sin. Happy new year.

    I have expressed my condolences earlier on this blog.

    Now that I have seen the film of Benazir Bhutto being shot and listened to the mealy-mouthed security people in Pakistan with their lies about what killed her, I think her murder is a “black bag” affair. But who ordered it? I doubt Scotland Yard will do much more than a whitewash in their investigation but it couldn’t be the FBI doing the snooping around, now could it? Blaming Al-Qaida for her murder is too obvious. The folks being blamed, by the way, say it wasn’t them that did the deed. Brown and Rice and that cabal pushed her into returning to Pakistan and now they have her blood on their hands as well as too many others in the mideast. Goes to show you just how much the so-called experts don’t know about a country like Pakistan to think that she could return and turn the mess Musharaff has made into something resembling democracy.

    I am actually surprised that an article like this appeared in an anti-Paksitan group’s newspaper.

    I am sure most of the educated class didnt care too much about her. she was a pain and we are happy to get rid of her.

    The uneducated are easily swayed and have a very shor term memory.

    I say Pakistan is better off without her.
