Benazir Bhutto - You can silence the voice but you can never kill the Dream


(1953 - 2007)

"I don’t fear death...I don’t think it can happen unless God wants it to happen
because so many people have tried to kill me." -Benazir Bhutto-

She said that once at an interview when asked after the two attempts made to

murder her , if she was worried of the chosen path she had took .


A Confident and powerful woman who was never afraid to voice out her

views , she was everything hated by fundamentalist but she still decided to

push on an go ahead with her chosen path . She was the first women to hold

such a high position of power in a Muslim country .


Before she died she was ranked highest on the election polls , what made

people think she was different from the other candidates ; Was it her

charismatic personality? Her dream for Democracy? or just knowing

that with her there will be hope for a better Pakistan? One things for sure .

They Believed in her .


I have been following her political campaign ever since she came out

from exile, it made me develop a great amount of respect towards this

amazing woman . Speculations on who was behind her assassination

have been circulating like wildfire some believe its Osama while others

think its Musharraf . These conspiracy theories are inevitable but the

fact remains. She was murdered.


It is sad that we have to mark the end of the year with the death of this

great woman. It is also sad to think that such violence is still prevalent in

todays world . They may have silenced the voice of democracy but they

will never kill the dream for Democracy.




The soul of man is immortal and imperishable.
-Plato,
Greek author & philosopher in Athens (427 BC - 347 BC)-
