in response to reader comment: A MAN WHO DREW LINE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL.

It was a great tragedy for Pakistan that its Former President and Prime-Minister, Z.A. Bhutto was hanged to death on April 4, 1979. It was also a travesty of Justice that Mr. was executed for the crime he did not commit. However, he had shown a great strength by going to gallows rather than submitting himself to the Military Ruler, gen. Zia. Mr. Bhutto still alive in the hearts of people of Pakistan and will live forever in the annals of history. Mr. Bhutto was a great and charismatic leader. He taught our nation that an ordinary poor person also has the self - respect just like a rich person. He set up the democratic institutions in Pakistan, industrialized the country, developed an independent foreign policy, and set up the nuclear program in Pakistan. He did make some mistakes but his good deeds were ten fold more than his bad ones.

Pakistan lost a great leader and his death left a vacuum that the country will never be able to fill it in. Pakistan Zindabad.
