Pakistan: PPP bats for late ex-President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s image on currency notes

Lahore: The Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) on Sunday adopted a resolution demanding the federal government to declare the late former President and party founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto a national democratic hero and feature his image on currency notes, according to local media reports. The resolution was passed during a seminar titled ‘Bhutto Reference and History’, discussing Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s reference.

This came over two months after Pakistan’s Supreme Court observed that former Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was not given a fair trial and due process in 1979 when he was sentenced to death by a seven-judge bench of the apex court during the regime of military dictator Gen Zia-ul-Haq, who had overthrown the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) government in July 1977.
