“She was a brave woman … and a committed democrat,” Abdullah Hussain Haroon, Pakistan’s UN Ambassador said, while mourning the passing away of a “close family friend.”

The ambassador, who presided over the meeting, called Begum Bhutto a woman of “extraordinary character, forbearance and fortitude” as she faced one tragedy after another from 1977 onwards—the arrest and later execution of her husband, Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, the violent deaths of her sons, Shahnawaz and Murtaza, and later her daughter, Mohatarma Benazir Bhutto.

The ambassador said Begum Bhutto fought for democracy during the harsh dictatorship of Gen. Zia-al-Haq, traveling throughout the country to rally support for the cause and to keeping the Pakistan People’s Party alive.

“She led by example,” he added. Many Pakistani women played important roles in politics, but none suffered so much, Haroon added.

The meeting later offered Fateha for the departed soul. Meanwhile, a Condolence Book has been opened at Pakistan Mission for the representatives of the UN member states to record their thoughts on the demise of Begum Bhutto.
