Begum Sahiba personally led from the front a heroic struggle for the restoration of democracy in the country he said adding also “seldom before a woman endured so much in the course of democratic struggle”.
The scars of brutalization that she wore on her mind and body will continue to shine as glittering medallions, he said.
Begum Sahiba was the spouse of Pakistan’s first directly elected Prime Minister and the mother of twice elected and the Muslim World’s first directly elected Prime Minister. But no less she was also an inspiring leader who led the struggle for democracy from the front, he said.
