Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto of Pakistan ZulfiToday, April 4, marks the death anniversary of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.

There is probably no other political figure since Mohammad Ali Jinnah who has left as deep and lasting a shaddow on Pakistan politics as Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto (ZAB). You can love him or hate him, but you cannot possibly ignore him.

Those who love him, love him with a passion that few – if any – other Pakistani leaders evoke. Those who hate him – and many seem to do – do so with equal ferocity. No one I know is indifferent to him.

Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto of Pakistan ZulfiI use the words “love” and “hate” because the intensity of people’s views on him cannot really be captured by dispassionate terms such as “like” and “dislike” alone. Whatever else we might think of him, no one can deny his intensity, or the intensity with which Pakistanis of all generations – including those who have never even seen him – talk about him.

So today, on his death anniversary, let me not talk about my views on him. Let him talk to us himself. In his own words and in his own unique and passionate style.

    The Rawalpindi district jail where he spent his last days is now the Jinnah Park,complete with a McDonald’s and a multiplex.
    Often while taking a walk in the park,I’ve wondered where his cell once was and where he was hanged.There is no indication.
