A Symbolic Death of Democracy in Pakistan

It’s really a turning point in the history of Pakistan.

I am quite depressed after the assassination of Benazir Bhutto. I am not a PP or BB worker, but this even blows the Pakistan democracy, and this event will lead us to disaster.

Though we have hardly seen democracy in Pakistan, from 1947, but Benazir was the symbol of Democratic reform movement in Pakistan, and I don’t know what is going to happen after her death.

This is not just a murder of a political leader, but attack on Pakistan, attach on democracy. This is a part of big games by big powers to demolish Pakistan.

Let’s pray and seek help from GOD to save Pakistan.

It’s a depressing time for Pakistan, really a bad time for Pakistan, may be majority of us (Pakistanis) perceive it a party leader murder, but it scope it very big, and it will have a very big and bad impact in the future of Pakistan.

Benazir Bhutto was a brave leader, and she scarifies her life for Pakistan. Though she was targeted in last suicide bomb, and continually threatens, but she Stands Firm until Gunned down.

Very few political leaders have this mush courage which Benazir and Bhutto family has shown.



  1. Mixed response to Bilawal’s nomination

    By Issam Ahmed

    LAHORE, Dec 31: The city’s youth on Monday reacted with mixed emotions to the appointment of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari as titular head of the Pakistan People’s Party. The Student Action Committee (SAC) Lahore, the city’s most vocal student movement in recent months, expressed its disdain at what it termed “the classic sub-continental tradition of considering lineage more important than capabilities or experience.”

    The students reiterated their call for a boycott of the elections until such time as the judiciary is restored, Musharraf resigns, and a non-partisan electoral commission is instituted.

    “They are actually behaving like a monarchy, like those in underdeveloped countries who, when they have no heir, anoint teenagers,” said LUMS student Sundas Hurain. “A 19-year-old is far too young. They should have at least taken a democratic route and had candidates contesting.”

    Halima Mansoor, an arts student at BNU, said Bilawal would be used as a “puppet”, while Azad Ali, at City Law College, said the move showed that the PPP was no more than a “family party”.

    “There were a whole host of good candidates to pick from, including Aitzaz Ahsan and many others, and I don’t know why they’ve reverted to dynastic politics. It’s very disheartening,” he said.

    Zain Ali, a member of the PPP aligned Pakistan Students Federation (PSF), on the other hand, hailed the decision as a “great step” for the future. “Who can be a better leader than Bilawal? Nobody was as beloved as her, and now he’s following in her footsteps at Oxford. I’m sure he’ll make a fine leader.”

    Sufyan Arshad, spokesperson for the Committee for Democracy Rule of Law in Pakistan (CDRLP), another pro-democracy umbrella group that sprang up in the wake of the Nov 3 declaration of emergency, and himself an undergraduate student, said: “The PPP has shown it is consistently against the establishment and not on their side. We welcome this move as a positive step in the struggle for democracy and we hope they will be good partners.”

    The Pakistan Students Association (PSA), a pro-Musharraf student alliance, also backed the decision. Their spokesman Hashim Shafqat said: “The loss of Benazir was a great tragedy for Pakistan. We’re glad they’ve chosen a youthful leader who will have zest and lead with enthusiasm, and placed their trust in the future of Pakistan rather than reverting to the old guard.”

  2. Very true…..the courage that she had could be rarely seen in other so called “leaders” around. May Allah(SWT) rest her soul in peace.

  3. Dear Sir/Madam,
    Dare to raise your voice for the inevitable socio-political change in Pakistan, to empower the Pakistani , the country belongs too.

    Since the creation of Pakistan the Pakistani people are left at distant from the corridor of power so that the ruling elite can do what they wanted to do in favour of their interest, leaving the Pakistani people at the mercy of circumstances. As this policy is denial of right of Pakistani people to rule their country according to their aspiration and desire to built this country, which can provide equal opportunity to all without any discrimination for the establishment of welfare society. Only the society base on tolerance, equality and justice can be the real guarantee for the prosperous and strong Pakistan there for your intention is invited to the crucial movement which could be the point of distraction or disaster.

    We have already lost the major part of Pakistan in 1971 simply to save the centralised sole power to exploit this country by the ruling elite they let the country break in part then allowing the masses to rule this country democratically. In the present circumstances we are again dragging our sovereignty at stack for the external interest in the name of national interest, instead of our interest i.e. the interest of Pakistani people at large.

    The only way out of these crucial circumstances is the only way to empower the common Pakistani at grass route level i.e. the change of system. This change is inevitable for the prosperous Pakistan .As a citizen of this country I have try to provide an alternate socio-political system to empower the masses at grass route level for rapid industrial and agriculture development with transparency and accountability in the system. Along with basic guarantees for the creation of welfare state, where in public representative and institution shall be answerable and accountable to the masses.
