Musharraf exploited entire situation to assassinate Benazir Bhutto: Bilawal

On the 10th anniversary of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said former president Gen (r) Pervez Musharraf was involved in his mother’s assassination.
“Musharraf exploited this entire situation to assassinate my mother,” he told BBC. He claimed that the former president purposely sabotaged her security so that she would be assassinated and taken off the scene.
Earlier in his message, Bilawal said those who killed Benazir Bhutto had actually planned to kill the whole nation but President Asif Ali Zardari saved the country by raising “Pakistan Khappay” slogan after her assassination in Rawalpindi.
He said that Benazir Bhutto lost her father, brothers and even mother fighting for the rights of downtrodden masses and dictatorial vultures hovering over the country, freed from the imperial yoke by our forefathers after a long independence movement.
He said in her valiant battle against the forces of darkness and elements of dictatorships, she eventually embraced martyrdom in line with the legacy of her father Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto but refused to withdraw from the cause.
PPP Chairman pledged that the cause, for which Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto laid down her life, would continue to be vigorously pursued for transformation of the country into an egalitarian, democratic, peaceful and progressive Pakistan.
