Remembering Bhutto

This gallery comprises images of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto originally collected by Agha Feroz.

Agha Feroz was the personal photgrapher of the Bhutto family and mainly Benazir Bhutto and shared the same affluence as her till she was assasinated in 2007.

"There was a time when I traveled the world with Benazir in helicopters and aeroplanes, now I change two buses just to get to work. I never thought that my life alone would take a such a massive turn due to the demise of the Bhutto family."

Agha Feroz paid tribute to the Bhutto Empire by organising an exhibit at the Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Park, in Karachi.

Amazing! Not a big fan of Bhutto family. But, end of the day they are just human beings going through the ups and downs of life.

How do we know that the picture of Zia showing him to be "celebrating" the death of Bhutto really is what it is being made out to be? Not a fan of Zia or Bhutto myself, but just wondering how something can be stated so authoritatively.

His mother Khursheed Begum was originally a Hindu named Lakhibai. She converted to Islam before marrying Shah Nawaz Bhutto.

Bhutto is the best thing that ever happened to pakistan. His biggest mistake was that he let the religious right out of control. He should have nipped the curse in the bud.

Bhutto and Indira Gandhi They were both brilliant and extremely manipulative. Both wanted power at all cost. They both met the same fate.

Will Pakistan find such a leader? He was bold, imagine when he was sentenced to death, nobody seen tears into his eyes. Compared our today`s leaders, give your fair opinion, is somebody like him. God Bless your soul Bhutto. RIP.

There was/is no such great leader as Bhutto. It is so unfortunate that such an intellect was born in Pakistan and met what an ugly fate! No matter how you twist it, he was simply the best!

Bhutto is the name that is synonymous with treachery and intrigue for many of the Pakistanis and Bengalis. He had considerable influence on national affairs during most of Ayub regime and then was instrumental in separation of the two wings of the country and when the country was divided in two, he gave a final blow to its economy by his nationalization policy, from which we are still struggling to recover.

I completely agree. He gave Molvis too much freedom. He suffered and we are still. Sad

Pakistan has become a cult of personality(ties). If someone is really a fan of Bhutto, then they should work towards forwarding his principles. Ideas are bigger than personalities. Does anybody even know what Bhutto was all about? Our allegiance should be with the ideas not personalities. Their should be no dynasties based on the lineage of one or the other political leader. Just shouting out slogans about some dead leader and repeating rhetoric will get us nowhere.

Sorry but zia ul haq was not a religion man. Everyone dumps pakistan's failure on religious factions but in reality the most heinous crimes of corruption and mismanagement in Pakistan has always come from the so called secular politicians while the blame is dumped on religious right.

It is strength knowing the cons he still stood up for the job remember the UN council conference in 1971, he ripped the papers and walked out on UN just for not listening to his opinion. Salute !

Pakistan.. a burial ground of great leaders and thinkers. Killed publicly for the world to take heed of the mighty and powerful Generals.
