Benazir Bhutto Assassinated

Im taking a break from my hibernation into studies and posting here to mourn the tragic death of Benazir Bhutto. Its sad to see great leaders like her falling victim to terrorism in the world.
She was the only female prime minister of Pakistan. She was the eldest child of former premier Zulfikar Ali Bhutto , a Pakistani of Sindhi extraction, and Begum ("Lady") Nusrat Bhutto, a Pakistani of Iranian
- Kurdish extraction. Its sad that her Whole family, Her father , brothers all died of unnatural deaths..
Being an Indian, many would wonder why im talking so much about a pakistani leader. India and Pakistan always had their differences between them. It was her initiative with former Indian prime minister Late Rajiv Gandhi , during her reign as prime minister as Pakistan , started a better relationship withe the 2 countries, and I salute her for that. Ironically both the former Prime Ministers , Rajiv Gandhi and Benazir Bhutto were assassinated by suicide bombings.. I guess good people don't live longer , but both have put a mark on their respective political arena.
She was a great visionary. Although she had her share of trials against her for corruption, what impresses me the most is she stood straight and strong as a Leader in the much orthodox country Pakistan. Being a Woman, She surely faced lots of criticism and problems, but she overcame all. And Now after so many year of exile, despite having so many threats to her life , she stepped back in pakistan for the betterment of the country, for transforming the country into a more democratic outfit. She was brave enough to step forward , knowing the fact that she cud be killed any moment. She survived one assassination attempt, but couldn't survive the next.
Its not only a big loss to Pakistan, but to the entire political world.. May her soul Rest in Peace.

Hi Shashi,
Thanks for the moving and emotinal post on the great Benazir Bhutto. She was treacherously murdered by a cabal of political extremists who considered her a threat to their own reign. It surprises us a lot that although she was surrounded by government security forces because of numerous threats and previous attempts at her life, still the assassin was able to penetrate that cordon of security forces and was able to detonate the bomb at close range. The accusing finger can only point to the person in power who have everything to gain by the elimination of the biggest threat to his continued rule in Pakistan. Let Benazir Bhutto get divine justice against the very person who should have protected her in the first place. Thanks for the great post. Happy New Year to you and your loved ones.
