Twitterati remembers Benazir Bhutto on 65th birthday

Bhutto was assassinated in at Liaquat Bagh, Rawalpindi on December 27, 2007.

Islamabad (Pakistan Point News – 21st June, 2018) ‘Daughter of the East’ Benazir Bhutto is being remembered today on her 65th birthday.

While programmes and seminars are being arranged for the occasion, Twitterati is also remembering the great leader on this day.

Meanwhile, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern gave birth to a baby girl today, Thursday, becoming the second world leader after Benazir Bhutto to have a child while in office.

Benazir was born on June 21, 1953 in Karachi to Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Nusrat Bhutto.

She got her education from Harvard and Oxford and returned to Pakistan after her father Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto’s hanging. Benazir led a movement for restoration of democracy in Pakistan against the military rule. Since then, she was elected prime minister three times and went to exile after her third time.

On October 18, 2007, she decided to return to Pakistan despite security threats. She avoided a blast on that day but was later targeted in a gun and bomb attack at Liaquat Bagh, Rawalpindi on December 27, 2007.

She is still remembered as one of the most dynamic and resilient leaders of all times.
