Safdar Ali Abbasi - After Benazir Bhutto's Assassination

After Benazir Bhutto's Assassination

Safdar Abbasi and his wife, Naheed Khan, faced many problems after Benazir Bhutto's assassination on 27 December 2007 in Liaquat Bagh. Both were considered very close to Benazir Bhutto and sidelined under the new leadership of Asif Ali Zardari, along with other close advisers of Benazir Bhutto

Not only them, but it is a general impression since the tragedy, that many of the party workers who were close to Buttho have been ignored by Asif Ali Zardari, including well known party worker and leader of the lawyers movement in Pakistan Aitezaz Ahsan. Many new figures took the close positions to Zardari. Safdar and Naheed even have been held responsible for the death of Ms. Bhutto, of which both denied and asked Zardari to contradict. But there was no answer or contradiction from Zardari or his newly appointed aides.

There appears to be a rift between the outspoken Dr Abbasi and Zardari; consequently his memebrship from the executive committee of the Pakistan Peoples Party has recently been terminated.

Famous quotes containing the word bhutto:

    The people who resent me do so because I’m a woman, I’m young, and I’m a Bhutto. Well, the simple answer is, it doesn’t matter that I’m a woman, it doesn’t matter that I’m young, and it’s a matter of pride that I’m a Bhutto.
    —Benazir Bhutto (b. 1953)
