Messages of commemoration flooded Twitter to mark the death anniversary of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, murdered 14 years ago on this day in a bomb blast that seared the hearts of her followers and many more across the country.
Her children reminisced about the moments their mother missed, with her son and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari posting a message of remembrance alongside a photo of Bhutto’s infamous shrouded head leading a full crowd.
Although her death occurred over a decade ago, for some, the day still stirs strong emotions of the hopes and dreams Bhutto represented as the country’s first female prime minister.
Under the hashtag #WohLarkliLalQalandarThi, many shared pictures and quotes from their beloved BB.
Others flocked to Larkana, paying homage in a somber annual pilgrimage to the Bhutto family mausoleum where she is buried.
Bhutto was assassinated in Rawalpindi on 27 December, 2007, when armed men shot at her convoy and a suicide bomb was detonated shortly after. She was campaigning for her third term as prime minister. An additional 23 bystanders were killed in the incident.
