As the nation remembers Benazir Bhutto on her 15th death anniversary, the Oxford Union also eulogised the former prime minister of Pakistan through a social media post.

The Oxford Union took to its official Twitter handle and stated, "Today we remember Benazir Bhutto, former Prime Minister of Pakistan and Ex-President of The Oxford Union. Hillary 1977. Benazir was assisinated 15 years ago today. This portrait hangs proudly in our Chamber and each year we host a Memorial Lecture in her honour. RIP Benazir."

From 1969 to 1973, Bhutto attended Radcliffe College at Harvard University, and after graduation, she enrolled in the prestigious Oxford University in England. She studied political science, economics, and philosophy at Lady Margaret Hall at Oxford from 1973 to 1977. She graduated from Oxford with a degree in International Law and Diplomacy. It is worth noting that she was the first Asian female president of the Oxford Student Union. As a result, she distinguished herself as a warrior and a leader from the start.

On December 27, 2007, Benazir Bhutto was assassinated soon after she had addressed an election rally in the historic Liaquat Bagh in Rawalpindi. She was reportedly killed by a 15-year-old suicide bomber.
