Yet another year of ignorance have passed, the perpetrators of Benazir Bhutto assassination have still not caught and the leadership of one of the largest political party of Pakistan, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) is clueless to answer about the killing of Shaheed BB.
Nation will never forget the day, 27th of December, a day to mourn the death of Pakistan’s ‘Iron Lady’ who was assassinated while leaving a party rally at Rawalpindi’s Liaquat National Bagh.
Benazir Bhutto is being remembered on her 11th death anniversary. The Pakistan People’s Party has organised a central congregation in her hometown Garhi Khuda Bux in Larkana district of Sindh. The slain leader has been paying homage as large number of party leaders and workers from all over the country have reached Garhi Khuda Bux to attend the ceremony with regard to the death anniversary of Benazir Bhutto.
Fool-proof security arrangements are in place on the occasion to avoid any untoward incident.
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman and son of Shaheed Mohtarma, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari and other party leaders have reached Larkana to attend the ceremony today.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, reminiscing her mother how she was as a lady and a leader, wrote on his Twitter handle:
“Waqt kay quzarnay per, Tum jou bhool jao gay, Hum tumhain bataingay, Benazir Kaysee thee Zindagi kay maathay per, Woh lakeer jaysee thee. Zulm kay nishanay per, Aik teer jaysee thee Benazir Bhutto bus Benazir jaysee thee. #SalaamBenazir”
Waqt kay quzarnay per,
Tum jou bhool jao gay,
Hum tumhain bataingay,
Benazir Kaysee thee
Zindagi kay maathay per,
Woh lakeer jaysee thee.
Zulm kay nishanay per,
Aik teer jaysee thee

“Ae Aameron, tum zinda hokar murda ho/Wo murda hokar zinda hai (Oh dictators, you are already dead while you live/ She is alive in her death).”

Meanwhile, the daughter of Benazir Bhutto, Aseefa Bhutto pays tribute to her mother, she has tweet:
اے رت چناروں سے کہنا وہ آنی ہے وہ آنی ہے وہ سندر خواب حقیقت بن چھاجانی ہے چھاجانی ہے وہ دریا دیس سمندر تھی جو تیرے میرے اندر تھی وہ سوہنی مٹی سندھڑی کی وہ لڑکی لال قلندر تھی #SalamShaheedBenazirBhutto
اے رت چناروں سے کہنا
وہ آنی ہے وہ آنی ہے
وہ سندر خواب حقیقت بن
چھاجانی ہے چھاجانی ہے
وہ دریا دیس سمندر تھی
جو تیرے میرے اندر تھی
وہ سوہنی مٹی سندھڑی کی
وہ لڑکی لال قلندر تھی#SalamShaheedBenazirBhutto pic.twitter.com/YNUAk5sLKW
