The children of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto (BB) defend the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and their father, Asif Ali Zardari, on twitter, the microblogging website.
In order to defend President Asif Ali Zardari and promote their ancestral part, the children of the slain former prime minister are very active users of the social networking website.
A day before Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani convicted by the Supreme Court in contempt of court charges, Bakhtawar Bhutto tweeted, “PPP is not a party of cowards. We are a party of fighters + martyrs because we believe in a democratic Pakistan”.
About the immunity of President Asif Ali Zardari, she further noted, “People cry over immunity but forget my father spent 11 and a half years in prison without a single conviction. Jails don’t scare us”.
Bakhtawar, who introduced herself as lyricist, enthusiast and nationalist, shared her views saying that Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto, their current democratically elected President and Prime Minister had all been to prison and fought in every court.
She tweeted when his father Asif Ali Zardari had inked a landmark constitutional reforms package which stripped the President of his sweeping powers. “For the first time in the history of this country, a democratically elected President has voluntarily given up his power,” she observed.
Aseefa, who is Pakistan’s Ambassador for Polio Eradication, is also very active user of microblogging website. She shared a quote of his mother, “Hum Jailoon Se Nahi Dartay, Hum Sazaoon Se Nahi Dartay”.
She tweeted on February 10, applauding Prime Minister Gilani. She noted, “PM Gilani standing tall in the face of adversity; doing justice to the position and legacy of SMBB and SZAB. Proud of him”.
Besides defending their father, the BB’s children are also promoting party on the social networking website.

He expressed his wish tweeting, “I wish he had lived despite the fact that he murdered members of my family. I wish he had lived to see the day we elected the Muslim world s first female PM. I wish he had lived to see us elect the first female speaker of our National Assembly”.
