The lives of political leaders do not end with there deaths. Therefore nominating Bilawal Zardari as the chair person of Pakistan’s largest Democratic Party brought a query, based on questioning the norms of democracy. This query was tackled by presenting the will of Ms. Benazir Bhutto without making it public in which she had nominated her husband Asif Ali Zardai the chairperson in case of her death. The death of BB was a drastic event of year 2007 but the advantage rest of the individuals have tried to take, has absolutely demoralized the workers of PPP and the family of ZAQ by following the inappropriate course of action. The myth of dynastic rule has repeatedly been termed as a concept that brings a number of adverse effects on nations. Not only democracy but Islam too has criticized the dynastic rule or divine right of kingship.
PPP never lacked leadership in the presence of personalities like Makhdoom Amin Fahim and Aatizaz Ahsan but unfortunately still the officialdoms of PPP did not adopt the just path and instead preferred to go against the democratic norms of democracy, devaluing the main message ZAQ gave by rejecting the dictatorship of Yahya khan. The lack of trust on the people of Pakistan in general and voters of PPP in specific was witnessed by this stance made. Altering name highlights the fact that Bhutto’s name still has the charisma for which even today the voters vote but is rejected on the basis of dynastic politics.
Another important subject after BB’s assassination was why the will has not been made public? In an interview with London times Fatima Bhutto who is also appearing as a good columnist in newspapers and is one of the direct decedents of ZAQ has added her doubts about not making public Ms. Bhutto’s will and has demanded that if there is one it must be made public. Being a leader the way one sacrifices personal life similarly will’s of such leaders cannot be kept secret and are the property of nation and therefore must be handed over to them sooner or later.
