Pakistan’s Twitterati remembered the birthday of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto on Tuesday. Friends and supporters showed an outpouring of love and encouraged people to donate blood as part of the national campaign to commemorate the assassinated Pakistan People’s Party leader.
Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari
Happy 58th Birthday to an incomparable woman, hero, leader and more importantly - mother. Every year my father presented my mother with dozens of roses for her birthday. Following this tradition, we placed 58 bouquets on her grave.
Aseefa Bhutto Zardari
Just donated blood to honour my leader and mother Shaheed Mothrama Benazir Bhutto...Happy Birthday.
Thinking of Benazir Bhutto and her family Bakhtawar, Aseefa and Bilawal today. An irreplaceable loss for Pakistan
In memory of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, who would have celebrated her 58th birthday on June 21 #Pakistan
Millions have been spent to advertise Benazir's Birthday while the country is starving to death. Should we even be shocked?
Bhutto Sahab Shahnawaz, Murtaza and finally my leader, sister and friend Bibi as I called her. Cruel country but we can’t give up.
Benazir Bhutto Shaheed, Salmaan Taseer, Shahbaz Bhatti, Saleem Shahzad and so many others - nameless and faceless.
Benazir Bhutto wrote to me "I have been impressed by your courage and determination in the face of such backwardness and fundamentalism.''
Benazir Bhutto's birthday today; a life to be celebrated. Face of a liberal and progressive Pakistan.
Happy birthday to #Benazir Bhutto - we salute our martyrs

Few women have the guts to fight the system in Pakistan - despite her shortcomings Benazir Bhutto did I await the new female PM of Pakistan
But there were many who betrayed BB, maligned her and now mourning her loss. A society at war against itself. Look at the trolls.
