The “Peoples” President, Asif Ali Zardari: A Parable of Gallantry! – By Saria Benazir.

26 Jul

He chose a scrap of mud in the necropolis of Garhi Khuda Bux Bhutto, but declined to be demoralized by the homicidal despots.

Another episode of history rolls, and one embarks on a parable of victory in the upshot of mayhem and troubles – the grave gloomiest minutes of the country’s narrations. The allegory of heroism reaches the pinnacle as Asif Ali Zardari’s name is mentioned – an emblem of devotion, allegiance and valor; the man of iron, who endured more than everyone else for bringing about a democratic process in Pakistan, and perhaps, the “Redeemer” of Pakistan, who saved the country from gashing into another Bangladesh by crying out the slogan of “Pakistan Khappay” at the most critical juncture of Pakistan’s history, when a third Prime Minister from the Sindh province was viciously assassinated in the same city of Rawalpindi. Carrying the mantle of leadership after the callous murder of his wife, the enchanting Daughter of the East, Shaheed Mohtarmah Benazir Bhutto, President Asif Ali Zardari sustained the efforts to accomplish the ideals of Bhutto-ism, and to bring about the rule of “the people” of Pakistan.

From Shaheed Benazir Bhutto’s husband to the President of Pakistan, Asif Ali Zardari’s life is bravura, but piercing prodigy of struggle and sacrifice. History would always remember his dogged binder to Shaheed Mohtarmah Benazir Bhutto and her cause. The peoples President, Asif Ali Zardari spent eleven and a half years in prison without a single conviction. His misdemeanors that justified ruthless torments and refutation of essential human rights were his eagerness to supply Bread, Clothing and Shelter to the masses, and to grant them their fundamental rights to self-determination, impartiality, egalitarianism and empowerment. He was kept in those blistering prison cells with a temperature of more than 48 degrees – merely because he joined ties with the Bhutto family, and protracted the struggle for the opulence of Pakistan. Those fictitious corruption charges could never be proved against him, no matter how fixated the undemocratic forces are to them, till the very day!

December 27, 2007 and its gloomy afternoon left the entire nation in obscurity. Life ceases as one evokes the instants when another Bhutto was killed, and the soil of Pakistan was roofed with red, and Garhi Khuda Bux Bhutto took inside the cadaver of democracy’s logo, and Shaheed Bhutto’s daughter – the only simper of buoyancy for the Pakistani population. There, it was President Asif Ali Zardari, who bore that soreness with fortitude, and shared the anguish of millions, who had lost their leader. Following into the footsteps of his martyred wife, President Asif Ali Zardari saved Pakistan and led the Pakistan Peoples Party to victory in the general elections of February 18, 2008 in order to materialize Shaheed Benazir Bhutto’s vision of a liberal and progressive Pakistan – and to hand over the supremacy to the masses. This changeover from totalitarianism to egalitarianism would not have been practicable without his captivating leadership, and above all, forbearance in the face of adversity.

President Asif Ali Zardari is a futurist – of a new, enlightened and affluent Pakistan, free from the tribulations of illiteracy, ailments, dearth and prejudice. He has laid the foundation of this country on modern lines, and introduced the perception of reconciliation in Pakistan’s political scene. After taking oath as the President of Pakistan, he has wielded his utmost exertions to convert this vision into veracity, and has led this country in years of commotion, following the unsympathetic policies of the dictatorial regimes. He scratched a new chapter in Pakistan’s history by handing over his powers to the Parliament, and for empowering the provinces. There were those, who continued with the confrontational politics of the 90s – President Asif Ali Zardari ensured the permanence of this embryonic democracy of ours by joining hands with other political parties, and to work for Pakistan altruistically.

Towards the end of 2011, there were anecdotes that President Asif Ali Zardari would quit on the account of ill health. Pressure had been exerted from all the frontages to terminate the elected government by making the memo an excuse or the letter to the Swiss authorities to re-open the cases against President Asif Ali Zardari. He has fought through the most perilous of the surges, and emerged triumphant. Behind this smiling character, he is the bravest man, I know, and I salute him for his humbleness, devotion, commitment and allegiance to the people of Pakistan. No one had enough guts to fight for Pakistan, as President Asif Ali Zardari, and his adversaries must know that very well that he is not made from a wood that burns easily.

Happy Birthday to the Man of Courage!

Glad to share my date of birth with the bravest!

Zardari Khappay!
