Benazir Bhutto's death anniversary to be observed on Dec. 27

The second death anniversary of former Pakistani Prime Minister Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Shaheed will be observed on Dec. 27 across the country, the official news agency APP reported Monday.

Pakistan's Presidential Spokesman Farhatullah Babar said programs are being chalked out for the death anniversary of Benazir Bhutto and the final decision would be made shortly, keeping in view the prevailing law and order situation.

There will be a main mourning gathering at Benazir Bhutto's final resting place in Garhi Khuda Bux, near Larkana, a city in the northwest of Sindh Province.

The ruling Pakistan People's Party, other political parties, civil society and lawyers would attend the mourning sessions and pay rich tribute to the life and achievements of the slain leader.

Benazir Bhutto was assassinated on Dec. 27, 2007 following an electioneering rally at Liaqat Bagh park in Rawalpindi, a garrison city adjoining the federal capital Islamabad.

According to PPP's leadership, the government would ensure maximum security for the visitors at Garhi Khuda Buxas. The government has also decided to build a monument at Liaqat Bagh on the second death anniversary to remember Benazir Bhutto.
