A documentary on Benazir Bhutto titled “Bhutto: You Cannot Murder a Legacy” was showcased on Tuesday at Pakistan National Council of Arts (PNCA).

The two-hour-long documentary was based on Benazir’s political endeavours and her personal life. Some members of the audience chanted slogans of “Jiyay Bhutto” between the screening and a few people were even seen leaving the hall with tears in their eyes.

The ministry of culture collaborated with PNCA to screen the documentary and the audience was a blend of politicians, diplomats and foreign journalists.

Tim George, Aurstralian High Commissioner said, “It was very informative to learn about the Bhutto family,” he said, and added, “It was quiet moving and tragic to see her death.”

Pir Aftab Hussain Shah Jilani, Fedral Minister for Culture, who claimed to be one of Benazir’s workers said, “Benazir was a great leader and sacrificed her life for a just cause.”
