Tributes to Mir Murtaza on his death anniversary
Islamabad September 19, 2016: Former President Asif Ali Zardari has paid glowing tributes to Mir Murtaza Bhutto on the eve of his 20th death anniversary on Tuesday (September 20) as a man of “great courage and conviction who lived an eventful life dedicated to fighting against dictatorship”.
Mir Murtaza endured exile, the assassination of his father and his younger brother and witnessed the tormenting of his mother and sister, but refused to submit before dictatorship, Zardari said in his message on the occasion.
The manner of his assassination and the mysterious murder subsequently of the investigation officer has led many to believe that the assassination was a conspiracy to kill a Bhutto and blame another Bhutto and overthrow the PPP government of the time led by his sister.
Nature dispenses its own justice. We believe that Mir Murtaza’s assassination will not remain secret forever and those behind this macabre crime will not only be exposed but also punished in the fullness of time, Zardari said.
