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.

In memory of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, who would have celebrated her 58th birthday on June 21 #Pakistan

Ijazul Haq

Millions have been spent to advertise Benazir's Birthday while the country is starving to death. Should we even be shocked?

Farahnaz Ispahani

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.

Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Shaheed was a personality that influenced everyone. She was a great democrat and a fighter. Her martyrdom had great effect on me. My life is now dedicated to the eradication of poverty and upholding the flag of freedom. Salman Taseer's martyrdom has enforced my commitment to the above resolves and I am humbly proud to be a fellow comrade of the People Of Pakistan who strive for the same.

D. Asghar | 10 years ago | Reply @Elyas Bhai, my tweet was copied here, it was in response to Ijaz Ul Haq's tweet, where he criticized that millions have been spent in birthday celeberations of SMBB. So I asked him to put his money where his mouth is. I am a jiyala odf my own type as well. Just wanted to clarify.
