The 27th of December marks the 11th death anniversary of Benazir Bhutto, who is popularly referred to as the Iron Lady of Pakistan. Benazir Bhutto served as the 11th and 13th Prime Minister of Pakistan from 1988 to 1990 and again from 1993 to 1996 respectively. Benazir was the first woman to head a democratic government in a muslim majority country.
Daughter of Pakistan People’s Party founder and chairman Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Benazir grew up in a political family and went on to forge her own path as a formidable opponent and accomplished politician before she was brutally assassinated in 2007. While her death remains a mystery, much of her life was lived in the eye of the public.
Whether Benazir was a successful politician or not is debatable, but it cannot be denied that due to her strength and courage she still serves as an inspiration to many.
