Closer to her father and supported him through thick and thin
During the Zia’s regime, Zulifqar Ali Bhutto faced number of challenges. He direly needed someone to solace him at that time of utmost struggle. He was behind the bar till his death.

Resisted challenges courageously especially after her father’s death
She faced every sort of issue bravely, be it personal or political in nature. Zulifqar Ali Bhutto was hanged on 4 April, 1979. After his death, his opponents had considered the game, over for PPP, but Benazir Bhutto continued her father’s political legacy and became premier twice.
A moderate lady who kept into consideration the needs of right and left wings
During her political struggle, she joined hands with both the left and the right wing parties. Although most of the people from right wing were against her, she continued to support them for a peaceful and tranquil Pakistan.
An inspiration for women all across the world

Benazir Bhutto was verbally and physically attacked many times. She narrowly escaped assassination attempt in Karachi on October 18, 2007. This attack was fatal. It took the lives of 180 people. The second attempt became successful and she was killed in a ruthless attack in Rawalpindi.
Played an active role in restoring democracy in the country
Half of the history of Pakistan has been under dictatorship. The other half belongs to fragile democracy. During the latter half, the eras of Benazir remained remarkable. Democratically it was noteworthy.
Mysterious assassination which left many questions unanswered
Although PPP during its tenure spent millions of dollars on investing Benazir Bhutto’s assassination, but it could not determine actual assassins rather resorted to blaming more than one person. Asif Ali Zardari first blamed General Musharraf and then accused TTP for the demise of such charismatic personality.
Her struggle promoted countless women to take part in politics
As Pakistan is famous for patriarchy, BB fought for women’s cause relatively stanchly. She motivated a number of women across the country to take part in politics at local, provincial, and national level. Her struggle for women would never be set aside.
