beautiful benazir: a leader who died before her supporters


कल भी BB जिन्दा थी — आज भी BB जिन्दा है

Benazir. Grab by Neeraj Bhushan.Three years ago, Benazir Bhutto — Muslim world’s first female leader — took her last journey from Dubai to Pakistan. It proved to be her final journey as she had then returned to a more disturbed Pakistan after a decade-long self-exile to London and Arab countries. This ‘Daughter of the East’ was assassinated cheaply like any other leader in South Asia, which has a history of bloody deaths. Getty Images photographer John Moore who took the last picture of the former Pakistani premier moments before her assassination says he was “surprised” to see Benazir rising through the sun-roof of her vehicle to wave to supporters after delivering her speech. “I ran up, got as close as I got, made a few pictures of her waving to the crowd and then suddenly, there were a few gunshots that rang out, and she went down, she went down through the sun-roof,” he said. “And just at that moment I raised my camera up and the blast happened. … And then, of course, there was chaos.”
