in response to reader comment: BHUTTO 'the death of dictators'

Submitted by Qaiser Rehman (United States), Jan 26, 2007 at 18:49

Being as a first elected prime minister of Pakistan, Z.A Bhutto enjoyed the craze of his personality. He was a well educated person from western countries and has communist ideology. He was a good Foriegn Minister, instead of PM. he visited the islamic countries and he wanted to create a base for islamic countries by joining them. he wanted to build islamic world bank in pakistan, and also he was the first Foriegn minister who gave the idea of friendship with China instead of America. these are his wokings as foriegn minister. and after that, he protested against tashqand treaty and became a famous leader by giving the slogan of Roti , Kapra aru Makan. he cashed the craze of his speeches and personality. he was the first person who talked about the rights of poors. He started the atomic energy process in pakistan.

He gave the communist and islamic ruling way. he declined qadiyanies as muslim. he nationalized the industries, due to nationalization, pakistan went back in history for 15 years, and he did not fulfill his promises of roti kapra aru makan. he did not try to prevail the democry. he punished the people who were against him in democratic way. he imposed his will by power. he did not give the rights to poor. he ruled the people as dictator not as a democracy prevailer. in the start of his rule and in 1970 he did not win more seats than Mujeebur rehman but he captured the mujeebur rehman and did not give the right to bengalies. he should be remain in opposition and mujeeb should be PM. anyhow, he resisted against the USA and tore the resolution papers against pakistan.

he was a person having charisma in his personality and thoughts, but he could not, or did not, act on his thoughts and if he got a chance to rule, he ruled the country as a dictator. but again his death by hanging make him famous and great leader of country. but in reality he was a Democratic Dictator
