R.I.P - Benazir Bhutto

Benazir Bhutto
1953-2007


Former Prime Minister of Pakistan. First woman to be elected as a head of a Muslim state.


Its a sad day for democracy. It really is. It's a shame people have to resort to killing off opponents because they can't handle outcomes other than what they want.

Democracy accounts for the majority's vote. Even if we don't get what we like, we have to accept it. That's democracy.

Unfortunately, in most Muslim states, they just can't accept this fact.

Its a shame really. Such a shame.

This is a terribly sad thing. She was brave to try when she knew the environment was so bad.

It's truly tragic she had to die the way she did and taken so young.But there is some truth in what Jemmima Khan Goldsmith used to describe her as a kleptocrat in a Hermes scarf.

People, we don't want to get anywhere near a Hermes scarf no more, do we now ?! :)

I am not talking in favor of or against the woman.

I am simply condemning the way things are done in regions like ours. (Middle East, Arabian states, Asian countries like India and Pakistan)

The way they choose to pursue their objectives is downright disgusting. This is the way democracy is, we have to accept that we wont always get what we want. The majority rules in the case of voting.

So even though some people didn't want her, and even though she might not be the best choice for Pakistan, competition should not be eliminated in this ghastly way.

Barbaric situations like these are what put us behind the global development movement.
