Zulfi Bhutto : A man who was born to live forever in the people’s hearts. Jeay Bhutto! -by Hina Mehr Nadeem

History is proud of such people who did not bow down to pressure even when they were hanged. This bright light of Pakistan, who helped his nation in trying times, was born 5th January, 1928 . If Pakistan has had any leader after Quaid-e-Azam, who enjoyed reverence and popularity, he is Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. He made the poor and downtrodden people politically aware. He wanted them to be treated and respected like any human being should be.

Since his youth, Quaid-e-Awam was politically enthusiastic and was an adherent of Quaid-e-Azam. On April 26, 1945, he wrote a letter to his Quaid-e-Azam. He wrote:

“You have inspired us and we are proud of you. Being still in school, I am unable to help the establishment of our sacred land. But the time will come when I will even sacrifice my life for Pakistan.”

Zulfikar Ali Bhutto had a charismatic image, which cast a spell on the masses right from Peshawar to Karachi.He worked unabated for the cause of the masses for giving them a better Pakistan, a progressive Pakistan.

On 30th November he founded Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) with a manifesto Islam is our religion, democracy our politics, socialism our economy and people are the source of power Under this manifesto he chartered a programme for providing roti, kapra aur makan. He brought politics out of the drawing rooms of palaces to the threshold of the dwellers of mud houses and declared the political paradise is under the feet of the masses. He brought the helpless peasants on a par with the feudal lords. Many people still remember those days when people of low social status like factory workers, blacksmiths, carpenters and cobblers were made office- bearers of the Pakistan Peoples’ Party.

After the tragedy of East Pakistan, in a historic speech in the year 1971, Shaheed Bhutto summed up his vision about the future of Pakistan by saying: “My dear countrymen, my dear friends, my dear students, labourers, peasants, those who fought for Pakistan. We are facing the worst crisis in our country’s life, a deadly crisis. We have to pick up the pieces, very small pieces, but we will make a new Pakistan, a prosperous and progressive Pakistan, a Pakistan free of exploitation, a Pakistan envisaged by the Quaid-i-Azam.”. He introduced a wide range of reforms in political, economic, social, industrial, educational and administrative arenas, aiming to change the fate of common man in Pakistan.

April 4, 1979 would always be remembered as a black day as it was the day when the judicial murder of our great leader was committed on the behest of a dictator. His judicial murder was for sure a conspiracy to get rid of a rising muslim leader who could have ultimately given diginity and honour to the muslim nations by uniting them together. “I am innocent” were the last words of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto who defied death and embraced martyrdom. He showed the world how a leader of the people lives and dies.

Toota hai kahan uska jadu,

Ek nara bana hai uska lahu,

sabit hua hai darkhan darkhan per jo shaks hukumat karta ta,

Larta ta woh apne jaiso se aur hum se mohabat karta ta

A legacy never dies……… Zinda hai Bhutto Zinda hai! Jeay Jeay Jeay Bhutto!

  • Now the corrupt and coward Zaradari’s son is ready to rule the Pakistan. People are considering him as Bhutto’s legacy. He is the son of the most corrupt president of Pakistan of our time. So please wait and see that PPP will be ruling the country and the blood of innocent people will be drained on the street by the corrupt government. Just like N-League is taking pleasure by killing innocent people via LEJ, SSP and TTP.

    • ZAB was a corrupt ego-maniac who refused to accept the results of the 1970 elections. If he would have accepted the results and handed the power in a democratic manner to Sheikh Mujeeb, we would still be a single country. But true to his feudal and aristocratic ways, he not only refused to concede defeat but incited the army to launch an operation in the Eastern half to crush the Bengalis. The second mortal blow he delivered to us was his stupid and shortsighted nationalization policy, everything was nationalized but the lands and holdings of the feudals like him.
      Pakistan still has not recovered from that massive blunder. It seems now that the PPP idiots and morons are trying to re-write and mis-represent history by painting this wretched character as a genius, which he was not. He was a average man, who knew how to whip the jahil masses into a frenzy, among very low quality politicians at that time. His progeny not only treated Pakistan as a giant ATM machine but also destroyed the foundations. So I personally hope and pray that ZAB is in hell with all his dead children and enjoying the hospitality there. Amen

  • I don’t know if ZAB was born to rule the hearts and minds of people, maybe rural Sindhis and feudal Mafiosi types, but certainly not the more educated ones. I can understand your affinity with the feudal ZAB and his progeny, you and your kind have fully milked this phenomenon called Bhuttoism. If I can go back in time, say maybe 50 years, I would carry my gun with me and make sure that Bhutto was taken care of. ZAB was as democratic as I am a expert in Quantum physics, which I am not.

  • I was browsing via the web for some information since yesterday night and I at last found what i was looking for! This is a fantastic web page by the way, except it looks a slight difficult to see in my smart phone.

  • Bhutto was a leader, Bhutto is a leader. After Quaid e Azam only Bhutto was the leader who loved and thought about the Pakistan and pakistani nation, sincerely. I love only Bhutto, not zardari & bilawal. JEAY BHUTTO
