Web Desk February 12, 2012

Ahead of Monday's proceedings in the Supreme Court in the contempt case against Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, Bakhtawar and Aseefa Bhutto Zardari have protested on Twitter against the SC’s decision of not allowing the PM to drive into the court’s premises.

Daughters of President Asif Ali Zardari, launched a ‘twitition’ (a twitter petition) on Sunday, tweeting statements in favour of Gilani and against the SC’s decision.

Aseefa tweeted:
PM Gilani standing tall in the face of adversity ; doing justice to the position and legacy of SMBB and SZAB. Proud of him.

#Twitition REVERSE CJP's decison of disallowing the PM to take his car inside SC.

Meanwhile Bakhtawar tweeted against those who were raising questions over the president’s constitutional right to immunity, adding that they did not fear imprisonment, since her father had spent 11 years in jail without a single conviction:
People cry over immunity but forget my father spent over 11 years in prison without a single conviction. Jails don't scare us.

PPP is not a party of cowards. We are a party of fighters + martyrs because we believe in a democratic Pakistan.

"There is not only the Supreme Court but there is the court of the People and the court of History" - SMBB (Oct 17th, 2007)

The Bhutto siblings have an active presence on Twitter, along with their elder brother and Pakistan Peoples Party chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

Gilani will appear before the Supreme court on February 13 to face indictment charges against him for the government’s two-year refusal to write to Swiss authorities to revive cases against President Asif Ali Zardari.

Chief JusticIftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry said that the final verdict could only be determined after the trial.

@Democracy: you must either be retarded or have a share in the corruption. I see no other possible explanation

Liberalache | 10 years ago | Reply Dear Aseefa and Buckhtawar, Your daddy did not spend 11 years in jail, he spent 11 years in VVIP facilities at a hospital ward where he had everything under the sun including "friends" that did things mommy dearest would never dream of. The next time greasy dad goes away, it will probably be for real....lets hope you're so unafraid of jail after that experience and are willing to come Pakistan to participate in politics...then I'll be willing to admit that the Bhutto-Zardari blood is indeed defiant and brave. Until then...please use that lap top to do other things. Hoping to see your daddy at G-K-B soon. All the best, An ordinary paki
