May Pakistan and her people stand firm in the face of this disaster

how did she die?? bomb blast or shot dead??? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:52, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

A big woman. --Olando 13:57, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

It was not the bomb blast. According to CNN/AP and their Pakistani sources (including Bhutto's husband) she died of gunshot wounds she recieved after the bomb blast —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:36, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Another source indicates that no bullets actually hit her; the bomb explosion caused her to hit her head on a beam that gave her a fatal concussion. 00:00, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Self - sacrifice owed a salvation[edit]

Benazir Bhutto had offered a sacrificial protection on democracy in pakistan. What a tragedy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:49, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Musharraf or Al Qaeda did it and he must be brought to justice[edit]

My opinion, anyhow. Might be wrong, but we ought to investigate whether Musharraf orchestrated the killing. 15:16, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Forgot Bin Laden was still supposed to be in Pakistani hills, but still... 15:23, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
I think it very well may have been both. Musharraf certainly did nothing to stop it at least. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:29, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
I think taliban and alqaeda forces are responsible for it. pakistani forces are engaged heavily in the fight against them ,in the hilly areas where they are hiding. stop blaming mushrraf for that. cant u see that he himself survived attacks. the terrorist group is now facing tough time because of mililatry actions against them. as now they are getting alone and support for them is being cut, they are only left with carrying out suicide blast and blowing them up.. we pakistanis know the position better then any one.

I have the greatest sympathy for her family --User:Anonymous101 15:21, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Just horrible. The world has lost one of the brightest stars in politics. A great loss. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:39, 27 December 2007 (UTC)


Some People are natural born leaders and they are feared by the simpletons and others with bad intention, it's funny how one little lady,soft spoken with a kind voice put so much fear into what we view to be strong mighty men, i hope we all learn a lesson from this,you don't need military might and a whole lot of weapons to move the masses and command respect,just kind words,understanding and just love for people.

Ah, but if she had such a large impact, can we really say that she was less strong and mighty than the people she challenged? True power comes from charisma, and she was as powerful as any other. May she rest in peace.-- 20:09, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

The silence...[edit]

... is deafening.

Where is the condemnation from the government of Iraq or Iran? In the latter case am I to assume that the ideologues view it as good riddance to a woman who did not know her place in society? The Western world has condemned this barbaric act and said the seeds of democracy within Pakistan must continue to be nourished, yet - as in my opening - where is the comment from the Islamic world? --Brian McNeil / talk 21:13, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

  • The criminal action today in Rawalpindi is strongly condemned. The Pakistan Government should use all efforts to identify the terrorist group which caused this incident and punish them. - Muhammad Ali Hosseini, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman[1]
  • Saudi King Abdullah said the attackers were "wicked murderers who are distant from Islam and morals."[2]
  • [Iraqi] President Jalal Talibani denounced the assassination and affirmed that Pakistan lost a dear daughter and a courageous politician that devoted her life to struggle for her people. He said that that terrorism killed a woman who courageously confronted terrorism and that exerted every possible effort in order to anchor the values of fraternity, tolerance and equity in her country.[3]
  • "It was an unpardonable crime that has shocked the world. The government and people of Bangladesh mourned this tragedy with their Pakistani brethren," the interim [Bangladesh] government Chief Fakhruddin Ahmed said in a statement.[4]

Benazir Bhutto.......the leader of The nation.[edit]

when i saw the news, it was shocking. because i wouldn't want another charismatic person who wanted freedom in her country to be assassinated for no reason. because it happened in my country too, in the philippines. when self-exiled senator ninoy aquino was assassinated just seconds after walking down the plane. he was exiled in america for 3 years. he was also the leader of the opposition, just like Mrs. Bhutto. the two had the same dream, to have democracy in their own country. i saw the other news of the other assasination attempt. it was the karachi bombings. i hope that Benazir Bhutto will have peace in paradise with her father and her brothers. and i hope there will be peace in Pakistan.

                                                                           —User:Stevenphil|Stevenphil 00:21, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Benajir Bhutto fight for peace in pakistan. Murder of Benajir is very shame ful thing for humenity. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:21, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

very sad news..................................... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:01, 28 December 2007 (UTC)


All this killing is so unneccesary. All these differences that people have CAN be resolved. There is always common ground. After all we are all human beings. We need to find that common ground. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kjinnra nemesis (talkcontribs) 05:40, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

I was very sad and traumatised to hear the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, the first woman elected to lead a Muslim state. Since I got informed two months ago of her determination to contribute to political changes in Pakistan, I have been following day to day the political evolution of this country. She passes away before achieving her noble purpose. I was also attracted by her party's slogan in 5 E's: Employment, Education, Energy, Environment and Equality. Other countrys'leaders, african women in particular, would learn much from this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:10, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Benazir Bhutto's Death??[edit]

Oh,my God,are these Pakistani gone crazy?? This is an act of terror!What is the use of having elections under this situation where candidates life's are not protected and could be easily targeted by murderers?What is the use for democracy where candidates could be easily targeted by suicide bombers?What is going on with the security system of Pakistan?Why Pakistani are exposed to danger like this?Why can't evereyone settle this mess peacefully and develop the nation's economy?I am very dissapointed with this act as this trully marred the spirit of democracy where potential candidates are assasinated as they can't be free elecion as your favourite candidate is gone in seconds.This is just like the 1968 incident where Democratic candidate,Robert Francis Kennedy was assasinated.Where is justice?Who upholds them?As this must be planned by someone,someone must masteminded this!This person must be taken to justice!If not,there is no hope left in Pakistan's democracy! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:24, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

A irrepairable loss for Pakistan and the world![edit]

The assassination of Benazir Bhutto will be the most unfortunate moment for the democracy in Pakistan. Indeed, she was the only hope of Pakistan for restoring democracy and peace. Whoever is responsible for her assassination should be ruthlessly hanged and the person deserves no other punishment!

May her soul rest in peace! Amen! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bhushan Damle (talkcontribs) 14:19, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
