Elections to Proceed On Time as Bhutto's Husband, Son Named Co-Chairs of Oppostion Party

CNews NAUDERO, Pakistan — Benazir Bhutto's 19-year-old son was chosen Sunday to succeed her as chairman of her opposition party, extending Pakistan's most famous political dynasty but leaving the real power to her husband, who will serve as co-chairman.

But earlier, a spokesman for the country's ruling party said the vote may be delayed up to four months, claiming the parliamentary elections would lose credibility if held as scheduled. He expected a formal announcement within 24 hours.

Awaz Public Ki {Current Situation in Pakistan}

Muhammad Hamid
It is a deep sorrow event that Benazir was assasinated. But it should not mean the destruction of the country.
Where are the leaders of the political parties, why are they not calling for calm throught out the country. These same leaders ask us to believe that they stand for democracy, but the wanton destruction that is being perpurtrated through out the country does not pertain to a democratic society. Why is it that only Musharaff has called for calm. With pwer comes great responsibility but it seems that the leaders of the political parties - namelly the PPP are staying quiet on this subject. Everyone is sorrowed and pained with the death of Mrs Bhutto, but let it not become an excuse to derail the progress that has been made and is being madethroughout the country. Lets not let the few demonstrate to the outside world how primitive a society we are. Do people not realise by destroying Mcdonalds and KFC's the only damage that is done is damage to the country, Mr Mc…

Militants, Bhutto aides allege cover-up

CNews ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - An Islamic militant group said Saturday it had no link to Benazir Bhutto's killing and the opposition leader's aides accused the government of a cover-up, disputing the official account of her death.
The government stood firmly by its account of Thursday's assassination and insisted it needed no foreign help in any investigation.
"This is not an ordinary criminal matter in which we require assistance of the international community. I think we are capable of handling it," said Interior Ministry spokesman Javed Iqbal Cheema.
Bhutto's aides said they doubted militant commander Baitullah Mehsud was behind the attack on the opposition leader and said the government's claim that she died when she hit her head on the sunroof of her vehicle was "dangerous nonsense."
Cheema said the government's account was based on "nothing but the facts"

Nabeel Arshed feels the country is spiralling out of control





I was in Rawalpindi town at the time of the assassination. I heard an
explosion but suicide bombs have become routine in this country so I didn't give
it a second thought.
When I turned on the news I got the shock of my life.
I come from a family with rightist sympathies but we all feel as if our
mother had died. She was a liberal force, a hope for a Pakistan overrun by
militancy. Now there is a great vacuum.
My fears are for Pakistan's unity. She went to the restive province of
Balochistan and handed her support to the people there. Whatever we were going
through, I felt as if she had the power to unite the provinces of Pakistan. Now
you can already hear the separatist movement.
Those voices are becoming stronger now that there is no national leader in
Pakistan. We were already in a downward spiral, heading towards extremism. This
was the last straw: killing a stalwart for democracy.
We were …

Countrywide protests, killings and arson

CNews ISLAMABAD: At least 27 people were killed and many wounded in violence during a nationwide outpouring of grief and a protest strike over Benazir Bhutto’s assassination while army was deployed in 16 districts of Sindh and paramilitary forces elsewhere in the country.

A complete general strike and funeral prayer congregations in all the country’s four provinces, Azad Kashmir and Northern Areas marked the day as the former prime minister, killed in an unidentified assassin’s gun-and-bomb attack in Rawalpindi on Thursday, was buried beside her father Zulfikar Ali Bhutto at their ancestral Garhi Khuda Bux village.

Pakistan says sunroof, not bomb or bullets, killed Bhutto

CNews ISLAMABAD - Pakistan's interior ministry said Friday that Benazir Bhutto was killed after smashing her head on her car's sunroof while trying to duck, and that no bullet or shrapnel was found inside her.
The ministry also said it had intercepted a phone call from a top Al-Qaeda figure congratulating a militant for the attack on her Thursday, and said there was "irrefutable evidence" the group was trying to destabilise the country.

Taliban, al-Qaida blamed in Bhutto death

GARHI KHUDA BAKHSH, Pakistan - Hundreds of thousands of mourners thronged the mausoleum of Pakistan's most famous political dynasty in an outpouring of emotion for Benazir Bhutto. The government said al-Qaida and the Taliban were responsible for her death, claiming it intercepted an al-Qaida leader's message of congratulation for the assassination.
But many of Bhutto's furious supporters blamed President Pervez Musharraf's government for the shooting and bombing attack on the former prime minister, Musharraf's most powerful opponent. They rampaged through several cities in violence that left at least 23 dead less than two weeks before crucial parliamentary elections.
"We have the evidence that al-Qaida and Taliban were behind the suicide attack on Benazir Bhutto," Interior Minister Hamid Nawaz said.
Thursday's attack on Bhutto plunged Pakistan into turmoil and badly damaged plans to restore democracy in this nuclear-armed nation, a key U.S. ally in the w…
