What is his contribution to Pakistan? Nothing
Um.. Raheel... what do you think the Zardari family is ? Injustices in Pakistan mostly stem from the feudal system we have. Unless and until that is stamped out, there will be no progress in Pakistan. Will Bilawal Zardari do that ?
@Muhammad Ahsan KHAN: You are entirely correct about "good luck to Pakistan" !
Way to go Chairman Bilawal ! We stood by your mother, we will stand by you. It is only because of the Bhutto factor that poor in this country have a hope; else, the self-righteous urban middle and Upper class have always found a way to enjoy unnecessary subsidies, mushroom industries and employed labor on cheap and degrading terms. Yes, i do not come from a rural area and very much belong to the middle class of Pakistan, but i also realize the injustices in this society. PPP all the way! We want a secular, pluralistic, peaceful and progressive Pakistan.
I'm wondering why some of the comments praising the current government are a result of complete blindless towards what happened in last 5 years in Pakistan?
No sane Pakistan would repeat this mistake again. We want a true, legit leadership. Not more jaageerdaarana nizaam, no more Bilawaja Bhuttos.
Looking at the comments welcoming Bilawajha Bhutto and propping him up as the promised messiah we can safely assume there is no hope left.
What makes anyone think that this individual will change anything ? Being brought up around corruption will surely cloud his judgement as to what is right and wrong.
7000 policemen!! all this while an aggressive of 10 people die in karachi everyday...karachi burns not turns..terrorist kill polio workers, doctors, scholars, minorities and innocents but not one move to provide security to the ppl...shame on these cowards who are preparing bilawals. Self proclaimed birthright I.even. To rule Pakistan and all the hapless souls who dwell here...
@Ovais, In a democratic country, you can become a political leader but before going to this long difficult path you must have tools such as ambition, will, resources, courage and support of your family and friends, For short cut you should have chosen parents who are already gone through this path.
Bring him on, we want him to have humiliating defeat!
" would Bilawal Bhutto make a good political leader?"
I will say yes and yes. Two times yes because Bhutto gave Islamic consitution to Pakistan and Zardari provided an Islamic peace to the people of Pakistan. A Butto-Zardari will do the TWO at the same time.
A great opportunity and good luck to Pakistanis..
Bilawal Bhutto........Future of Pakistan with new ideas...We welcome Mr.Bilawal Bhutto...
Appreciate it. He has to be a better leader of PPP than his daddy. Let's see how he performs in the general elections.
Sad day. Pakistan is treated as personal JAGEER.
