We(Pakistan) will eat grass, even go hungry, but we will get one of our own (Atom bomb).... We have no other choice!” ― Zulfikar Ali Bhutto The people have realized that Martial Law is not law. A regime not established by law is devoid of the attribute to dispense law. A regime which puts in a bunker the highest law in the land does not have the moral authority to say that nobody is above the law.” ― Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, bOOK.If I Am Assassinated


Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto

Zulfikar Ali Bhutto (Urdu: ذوالفقار علی بھٹو‎) (IPA: [zʊlfɪqɑːɾ ɑli bʱʊʈːoː]; 5 January 1928 – 4 April 1979) was the ninth Prime Minister of Pakistan (1973–77) and its fourth President (1971–73). Revered as Quaid-i-Awam (Urdu:قا ئد عوام; lit. People's Leader), he founded the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) and served as its chairman until his execution in 1979. Educated at USC, UC Berkeley and Oxford, Bhutto trained as a barrister at Lincoln's Inn in London. His political career began as a member of President Iskander Mirza's cabinet, before being assigned several ministries during the presidency of Field Marshal Ayub Khan from 1958. Appointed as Foreign Minister in 1963, Bhutto was a proponent of covert infiltration in Indian Kashmir, leading to war with India in 1965. An agreement brokered by the Soviet Union ended hostilities, but Bhutto fell out with Ayub and was dismissed from the government. After uniting the left-wing mass, Bhutto founded the PPP in 1967, and contested 1970 general election held by President Yahya Khan– Ayub's successor. The East Pakistani party, the Awami League, surprisingly won a plurality of seats, but neither Yahya nor Bhutto were ready to cede power to them. Subsequent uprisings led to the 1971 secession of the East as Bangladesh, as Pakistan were defeated in a war against Bangladesh-allied India. Bhutto was handed the presidency in December 1971 and an emergency was imposed.By July 1972, President Bhutto had recovered around 93,000 prisoners of war and 5,000 square miles of Indian-held territory after signing the Simla Agreement with Indian premier Indira Gandhi. In foreign affairs, he strengthened ties with Soviet Union, China and Saudi Arabia, and recognised the sovereignty of Bangladesh. Domestically, Bhutto's reign saw parliament unanimously approve a new constitution in 1973, after which he endorsed Fazal Ilahi's bid for president, and assumed instead the newly empowered office of Prime minister. He also played an integral role in

    ہم (پاکستان) گھاس کھائیں گے ، یہاں تک کہ بھوکے بھی ہوں گے ، لیکن ہمیں اپنا اپنا ایک (ایٹم بم) مل جائے گا .... ہمارے پاس کوئی دوسرا راستہ نہیں ہے۔ قانون کے ذریعہ قائم نہ ہونے والی حکومت قانون کی فراہمی سے منسوب نہیں ہے۔ ایک ایسی حکومت جو زمین میں سب سے زیادہ قانون بنکر میں ڈالتی ہے اسے اخلاقی اختیار حاصل نہیں ہوتا کہ وہ یہ کہے کہ کوئی بھی قانون سے بالاتر نہیں ہے۔ "- زلفکار علی بھٹو ، کتاب۔ اگر میں قتل کیا گیا
