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

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.

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 Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry said that the final verdict could only be determined after the trial.
