Benazir Bhutto assassination - a tragedy, not just for Pakistan

It has been a constant worry since she returned to Pakistan, that Benazir Bhutto would make the ultimate sacrifice for what she believed and thus it has proved. Whatever we think about Pakistani politics no one can fail to have been impressed by the courage of this woman. In this country the most we are asked to sacrifice for our political beliefs is our reputation or our dignity, whatever her faults she has always been a huge hero of mine and her loss is a loss to us all.

My condolences to all those of my friends who loved her and had pinned their hopes on her role in the future of their beloved homeland.
