Happy Birthday Benazir Bhutto

Today, the 21 of June, is Benazir Bhutto’s birthday. She was the first woman to lead an Islamic state. She was a friend of Mr Fatehyab Ali Khan and during the 1980s the two, along with many others, fought for the freedom of Pakistan: they suffered long years in prison while agitating the military regime of General Zia – Pakistan’s worst dictator.

Had she not been murdered while staging her political comeback, today would have been Benazir Bhutto’s 58th birthday.

I suppose it still is her birthday but unfortunately for Pakistan her country is suffering from an acute vacuum of leadership which only she could have filled.

The video below traces some of Benazir Bhutto’s colourful life. She was definitely Pakistan’s best looking premier. In fact just for the record my college friend Michael Shim who now teaches philosophy in Los Angeles always said “she is a real babe your prime minister”.

May her soul rest in peace. One can only hope that she has gone to a better place.
