Thank you Mr. President! – by Saria Benazir

“God brings night and God brings day. God brings light and God brings darkness. Victory and defeat are in God’s hands. In our hands is the decision to live a life that can give us the satisfaction to say, when dying, that we lived a full life, a life devoted to serving humanity and its highest ideals.” Shaheed Mohtarmah Benazir Bhutto 

 President Asif Ali Zardari – one of the most enthralling figures of the Pakistan’s politics observes his 57th birthday on July 26. For the masses, he is the singular sanguinity, of course, because he leads Shaheed Mohtarmah Benazir Bhutto’s party – the largest political party of Pakistan, which was established to serve the “Awam”. There are many, who would convey their disenchantment over the existing circumstances, partially because their focal spring of comprehension is the news bulletins and the talk shows on the television. Nevertheless, divergent to their views, I would express gratitude to Mr. Asif Ali Zardari for leading this dominion in the worst predicament of its narration, and making this land, a very better place to live in, as reckoned by its founders.

He married the Daughter of East, Shaheed Mohtarmah Benazir Bhutto on December 18, 1987, and after joining ties with a member of the Bhutto family, President Asif Ali Zardari has demonstrated a paradigm of valor, and ardor by always standing by Shaheed Benazir Bhutto at the most awful of the times, favoring incarceration to treachery to his ideals – i.e. to provide Bread, Clothing and Shelter to the people of Pakistan, and to lend a hand those who had been dispossessed of their indispensable rights ever since Pakistan’s underpinning. This venture cost him his health, and family life, and for eleven and a half years, he had to tolerate the sweltering heat of the prison cells followed by appalling persecution, and other corporeal and psychological twinges. Despite the fact that the assertions against him remain unverified till the very day, he scarcely spent 9 years of his married life with his family – the lockup was Zardari’s second home. His children grew up devoid of a father’s affection and Shaheed Benazir Bhutto had to spend years fighting those bogus corruption arraigns alongside bringing up the children, and leading the party all alone. When released, he had become a heart patient followed by other ailments. The family had barely gotten together that the shadowy afternoon of December 27, 2007 filched his beloved wife and the leader of people, Benazir Bhutto from him.

He forfeited those 11 and half years of his life, and his personal life, purely in the anticipation of an improved prospect for the people of Pakistan. This nation is too obliged to Mr. Zardari! Salutation to his audacity!

In the repercussion of the earth-shattering December 27, 2007, President Asif Ali Zardari carried towering the crest of the peoples’ power – the red, green and the black flag which posed the utmost hazard to the despots and their mean ends, thus, saving Pakistan from mayhem and sliding doors. Zardari attested to be the true successor to the celebrated heritage of Quaid e Awam Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, and after routing a totalitarian – his wife’s murderer, led the Pakistan Peoples Party to victory in the general elections to serve the people of Pakistan, and materialize Shaheed Benazir Bhutto’s vision of a progressive and egalitarian Pakistan – Pakistan that was too precious to her heart.

No one was primed to escort the country in those muddled situations, but it was Asif Ali Zardari who did not relinquish, and after becoming the President of Pakistan, President Asif Ali Zardari immediately relocated the powers to the chosen representatives of the people, and willingly handed over the authority to the Prime Minister by terminating the Article 58 – 2 (b) to the constitution of Pakistan. The NFC awards gave sovereignty to the provinces, and the Benazir Bhutto Shaheed Income Support Programme was commenced to back the dearth stricken masses. Women were authorized through legislation, and the rights of the minorities guaranteed – Successful military operations were accomplished in Swat and the northern areas to blotch off the terrorists, who created a peril to the country’s security, solidity and economy. The setback of the internally displaced people was unraveled within a year, and the areas hit by the calamitous floods were rehabilitated. Poor friendly schemes were initiated, and the government ensured the freedom of press and judiciary. The strategy of reconciliation remains the hallmark of the current PPP regime, and enormous attempts were made to prevent this democratic system from being wrecked.

He is the first ever head of the state to donate all of his body organs, thus abiding with the Pakistan Peoples Party’s convention of sacrifice. After Shaheed Mohtarmah Benazir Bhutto’s assassination, the challengers of democracy interrogated “Will the PPP survive”? President Asif Ali Zardari’s dedication and enigmatic leadership has provided a substantiation that the Pakistan Peoples Party has come to survive forever. His love for every Pakistani child as Bakhtawar, Aseefa and Bilawal, and concern for the wellbeing of the population makes him unparalleled in Pakistan’s history.

Thank you Mr. President for setting the base of a tolerant and thriving Pakistan – We would always remain beholden to your enormous courage, and sacrifices.

 Happy Birthday to the Man, who gave up his everything for Pakistan!

From a daughter, always prepared to give up her life for you!

Jeay Bhutto!

Agli Bari, Phir Zardari!

  • Madam saria Benazir
    Its a shame to talk to a person like you first of all.Do u even realise whom u r trying to defend with your sugar coated or lets say honey coated words is the all country wide known TRAITOR, my sister ! DO u even know how leadership works ? How much a ruler is responsible to his nation, to his people, to his land ? Even if a dog sleeps hungry in a country the leader is withheld responsible may be not in our district courts, not in our provinsional courts , not in our national courts, not in the international court but the universal court of Allah.This man whom you are priasing alot is the ultimate looter of the nation and one of the utmost reason for the fall of Benazir Bhutto herself.When a person is just, honest and works for the welfare of the nation, his work is seen by all in practical terms just as we all know about the tireless work of Nelson Mandela, Mother Teressa and in our own country people like Edhi. If Zardari has done somethimng good for the nation why is not the nation praising him? why arenot we satisfied with our leader ? why is every single man crying at the misfortune of this nation ? why is there this a level an economic crisis ? Why are people sleeping with hungry guts each night ,craving for food ? Why so much frustration ? why the business and stock markets collapse ? Do u even realise the crisis the nation is going through? How could you know of the sleepless nights for u r fast asleep in ur cosy bed with generators, UPS and ACs on at your service twenty four hour.If u r about to say that the ppp govt has only had its four years then you must know that the extent of the downfall of the nation’s economy has never seen such an era of loss. just before musharraf stepdowned the economy was pretty good but today after the four year rule of zardari we have stepped into the stone age.yes our misery, our condition simply indicate the stone age era.Zardari has even splitted our four provinces and karachi has become the hub of bhatha khauri.The nation’s X-PM gillani was himself a criminal so just imagine a prime minister held responsible to the swiss bank and th e new PM Raju sahab a well known leader of the chalees chor tale of pakistan.Do u get deff or blind when u hear zardari barking out shit in a jalsa? people cannot stop holding their stomach from laughter. Is that the formal style a president addresses his naton in? our history has been polluted with the filthy ugly yellow reign of zardari.The class of zardari lies in it that he must not understand this article you have written , he has to hire a few translators to explain the writings to him.poor benazir bhutto in her grave would be suffering inher grave partly cuz of this man and partly of her own corruption scheme when she was in power.Its not that I blame the ppp alone, there are many others responsible too but if somebody suuports a wrongdoer they will always see my this face.I expected the educated class being aware of the betterment of the nation but shamefully you proved me wrong. Nothing did you learn from BMI, i guess . Zardari has proven himself a corrupt man , more than any one in history so far . donot think of this world as forever, for every man wether corrupt zardari or the wise IMRAN KHAN will be answerable to allah . People like you are no less than hypocrates .You havenot ever passed by the word patriotism .Your love,the one which you have in there , which for, you are trying to play politician-politician- unfortunately we all understand.This show off of patriotism will soon take you down for false hood is for sure bound to be perish.Your future to become a politician-well you may be one in the future but only a politician not a human,just a pakistani by name but corrupt inside. I am sure you werent born loving benazir, your mother or father must be fans to PPP and that is how they must have named you but this doesnt mean that you shall ignore what you see and veiw what your parents show you saria BENAZIR . and please request your parents not to waste their money on your education BECAUSE YOU ARE QUALIFIED BUT WERE NEVER EDUCATED ,could never learn the difference between good and bad.Are you blind or want to be blind ?If the young generatin thinks this way and cannot differentiate between light and darkness so God forbid i shall doubt the survival of my country ,which the great Quaid had earned us with his own life in return. mercy on YOU !

  • One day this nation will realize and appreciate the wisdom of this brave leader Asif Zardari.. Sir Go ahead, Masses are with you.
