Long Live Benazir Bhutto!!! A Sonnet to Eulogize
This Bet is that of Blood – which You Ought to Los

The Bhutto-haters conspired and killed my innocent father – a great leader. I stayed composed and struggled to restore democracy in my Country. They did not stop – then they killed Shahnawaz - my baby-brother. My friends and sympathizers advised me to leave my Country. How could I leave the place where lay buried - my father and my brother? Thus I decided to stay on and fight the dictator - and his tyrannical policy. The dictator left no stone unturned to punish me and my mother. We both suffered at his hands but stayed the course – only for our Country. I was incarcerated and made to suffer – just like they did to my father. But with my people with me I refused to budge and accept his supremacy. My people welcomed me back from exile - to fulfill the dreams of my father. With support of my people, I thus became the first woman PM of my Country. My enemies did not stop – they murdered Mir Murtaza Bhutto – my beloved brother. They finally eliminated me – working hand in hand with the enemies of my Country. Faiz Al-Najdi is a Riyadh based Engineer and a Writer; Email: faizalnajdi@gmail.com)

Comment Dear Faiz, I have been reading and abreast with the happenings in Pakistan, right from the days of Zulfiqar Bhutto! Your sonnet to the brave-heart was really touching. It is indeed a right eulogy for the great soul who fought relentlessly and fearlessly for the cause that her father espoused! Great tribute indeed!! Look forward to reading more from you!!
