    4th April 2022, the 43rd Anniversary of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto

    Why still Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto is still alive? Today is his 43rd death anniversary. The gigantic tasks he performed perhaps none has ever done since 1947 and I am sure no one will ever come to even near the favors he did to people of Pakistan till dooms day.

    Bhutto established Gomal University Dera Ismail Khan in 1973 and world class Quaid-e-Azam University and Allama Iqbal Open University in Islamabad in 1974.
    Bhutto established the Allama Iqbal Medical College in 1975.
    In 1974, with the help of Dr Abdus Salam, Bhutto gave authorisation of the International Nathiagali Summer College on Contemporary Physics (INSC) at the Nathiagali and as even as of today, INSC conference is still held on Pakistan, where thousands of scientists from all over the world are delegated to Pakistan to interact with Pakistan's academic scientists.
    In 1976, Bhutto established the Engineering Council, Institute of Theoretical Physics, Pakistan Academy of Letters and Cadet college Razmak in North Waziristan.
    further four new Universities established at Multan, Bahawalpur, and Khairpur.
    People's Open University is another innovative venture which has started functioning from Islamabad.
    For Hostels, Directions were issued that fans, water-coolers and pay-telephones must be provided in each and every hostel in as short a time as physically possible.
    Seven thousand new hostel seats were planned to be added to the existing accommodation after the 1977 election.
    The agricultural land ceiling, for the first time, was fixed, in Bhutto's period, to 150 acres of irrigated land and 300 acres of non-irrigated land.
    Huge tax exceptions were also introduced for small landowners.
    Bhutto upgraded a number of dams and barrages.
    Bhutto Government initiated schemes for combating water logging and salinity.
    In 1976, the Bhutto government established Federal Flood Commission (FFC), and was tasked to prepare national flood protection plans, and flood forecasting and research to harness floodwater.
    Bhutto government launched programs to put the country on to self-sufficiency in rice, sugar, wheat and industries.
    Bhutto's nationalisation of industries heavily benefited the poor mass, but badly upset the influential feudal lords.
    In Balochistan, Sardari System was abolished.
    KESC was created and kept under complete government control with no private influence.
    Bhutto also established ÃÃ
    Atomic Energy Commission .
    the Port Qasim,
    Pakistan Steel Mills,
    the Heavy Mechanical Complex (HMC)
    and several cement factories.
    BHUTTO Government given the Constitution in 1973.and in his time National Identity cards started for the nation.
    He arranged millions of job for skilled workers in Gulf countries..
    Throughout Bhutto's period the growth rate of economy relative to that of the 1960s remained at equilibrium level despite the global oil crises in 1973 and without USAid and with USA sanctions.
    Bhutto's policy largely benefited the poor and working class when the level of absolute poverty was sharply reduced.
    The land reform programme provided increased economic support to landless tenants.
    Development spending was increased especially in health, education, roads, rails and airports constructions.
    Foreign companies and industries in Pakistan were exempt from nationalisation to keep the flow of investment intact.
    In 1973, Bhutto said that: "activity of public sector or state sector prevents the concentration of economic power in few hands, and protects the small and medium entrepreneurs from the clutches of giant enterprises and vested interests" in front of investers of Lahore Chamber of Commerce.
    In July 1973 Bhutto founded the National Development Finance Corporation(NDFC) with an initial government investment of 100 million rupees. The NDFC is currently the largest development finance institution of Pakistan. 42 projects financed by NDFC have contributed Rs. 10,761 million to Pakistan's GDP and generated Rs. 690 million after-tax profits and 40,465 jobs.
    The Bhutto government increased the level of investment, private and public, in the economy from less than Rs. 7,000 million in 1971â72 to more than Rs. 17,000 million in 1974â75.
    Bhutto amended banking laws forcing banks to ensure 70% of institutional lending should be for small land holders of 12.5 acres or less. It was a revolutionary idea at a time when banks only clients were the privileged classes.
    The number of bank branches rose by 75
    He was the legend political leader of Pakistan with complete planned vision unlike todays political leaders including pti ppp !

    One of the biggest leaders in Pakistan for sure. Although its a never ending debate on his role in 1971 partition.


    Ironically (and sadly) after 43 years, Pak is still going through the same chaotic political scene as on the day of his death
    Attitude is more important than facts.

      Sure, he was a human being, "To Err is Human". But he compensated and gave Pakistan a lot, the above list speaks of it self. He did not deserve the death it was inflicted on him by 'zamir frosh' corrupt judges and General Zia-ul-Haq.

        Instead of facing the vote, a deputy speaker from Khan’s party accused the entire opposition of working on a “foreign agenda” and rejected the motion. Khan advised the dissolution of the national assembly shortly after.

          Thanks for sharing the list of projects done by ZAB, very educational for me. I'm blank about the era prior to 2nd term of NS. There was a very educational thread on GS about role of ZAB in fall of Dhaka. I thought I would read the thread some other time but was never able to find it again. Basically the thread was about fixing responsibility where it belongs and there were differing but very educational povs in that thread.

            At one end very beneficial to Pakistan no doubt,... but on the other hand he was the reason for huge losses and damages to Pakistan. Even after his death.

            He is the reason for the country went down to uneducated, Jaahil, Low class people still controlling Pakistan.

            He brought horrible quota system and Nationalization of private entities in Pakistan.

            Quota system still divided Sindh in to urban and rural.

            Legacy of his hatred for Urban part of Sindh still continues.


            So, not only he divided East ans West Pakistan, He divided Sindh in to Urban and Rural parts. He showed himself as a racist and hateful person.


            Only people who benefited illegitimately from these actions love him and they deny these decisions which eventually hurt the progress of Pakistan.

            Low IQ people are still controlling the bureaucracy of Pakistan because of him.



            __________________________________________________ ___________________________________


            His love to stay in power despite losing election against Mujeeb caused the division of the country's land and loss of lives of of countless people.

            What a shameless and selfish person who only cared for himself and not for the country.


            But later,


            One evil met other one.

            Zia came to power and finally and "unfortunately" by using his evil tactics and following order from his hidden master(s). like a puppet. he got ZA Bhutto killed.

            Both were evils.

            And then.............. Zia paid the price for his inhuman, devilish/shaitani act.

            May both of their souls rest in peace. Not sure if this prayer will be accepted but hope it does.

              Off title and discussion sorry:

              Not in favor of Imran Khan on all means or matters, but what right PPP has to criticize Imran Khan for him to try to stay in power by any means good or bad if ZA Bhutto did exactly the same and even worse than losing no confidence vote in assembly despite losing much stronger general election.


              The legacy or trend of sticking on to the power seat regardless of the national interest was set by ZA Bhutto.

                I think I had started that thread many years ago again on one of ZAB's death anniversary. The bottom line of thread as I remembered was that the majority fixed major responsibility of breakup of Pakistan in 1971 to the dictator ruler, General Yahya. And yes it makes sense. When dictator did not allow Shaikh Mujib to form the government after winning elections with huge majority in combined Pakistan, the dismantling started. To be honest, we the then West Pakistanis also did not want a Bengali beggars to rule West Pakistan, this is what brain washed by media and military janta who belonged to West Pakistani origin since 1947.

                  Ultimate blame for division or separation absolutely and without any doubt goes to ZA Bhutto and his partner Drunkard General of Islamic Republic of Pakistan,...General Yahya. He is the one who said Legs will be broken of people who attended National Assembly inaugural session.

                  Now someone tried to twist his words ( Acc. to this person he said, those who attended the assembly will have no legs to go back home after attending) thereby admitting something was said in similar line by ZA Bhutto.

                  Nice try to save Bhutto of his selfish, short sighted, and threatening behaviour.


                  Let's talk about the facts.

                  Awami League had received the majority votes. Mujeeb should have been the PM.

                  And the PPP despite fooling public to be the one for democracy all along refused to accept the results of election. No credible reason...just criminal mindset.

                    Not just Yahya. He tried to convince ZA Bhutto otherwise. But not using enough efforts.

                    Also, agree with the red part of your post.

                    Racism is still present in Pakistan.

                    ZA Bhutto if not the indirect murderer of Qusuri, he definitely was the indirect murderer of numerous Muslims and human beings....Just like Zia.

                      Those murders could have stopped had Yayha Khan allowed Sh Mujib to form the government. He was so arrogant and proud you can see his body language also. As regard Qasuri's murder, his son named ZAB as killer in the FIR. What do you think, even he could have named 'diwana' as a killer in the FIR, it did not mean that you killed someone. General Zia-ul-haq kept on changing the judges of SC until he got the decision he wanted. Even then it was 4-3 split decision. Later one of the sitting judges said it was 'judicial murder'. Masood Mahmood the ex director FSF was 'wada mauf gawa' perhaps he was directly involved in the murder. After killing of ZAB, he vanished and never found. Perhaps Zia-ul-Haq also got him killed to clear the evidence.

                        Did ZA Bhutto gladly accept that Awami League won the election and Mujeeb be the PM?

                            So Sachaydino could not answer the question. Not sure why?

                            Probable reasons are that

                            1- Sachaydino has not been able to come back to this thread to answer.
                            2- This member is still thinking about what to answer.

                            Let's see if and when this member answers.


                            Options are:


                            a. Yes as the answer, will negate his or her position that Yahya alone was responsible for the anarchy in the country and ZA Bhutto somehow was nice and innocent.

                            b. No as the answer, will make this Shachydino utterly wrong, since history says otherwise.

                            Indeed ZA Bhutto the so called champion of "Democratic party" refused to accept the Elections results and refused to concede.

                            He claimed to be Democracy supporter and yet a Chief Martial Law administrator????


                            Anyone can see the sad dilemma of Sachaydino.

                              Shameful Legacy of Z.A. Bhutto.


                              1-Making the way of dividing Pakistan by his greed to become the PM of Pakistan by using backdoor, denying the results of 1970 elections.

                              2-Indirectly responsible for deaths of hundreds of thousands of human beings, rapes of countless women,

                              3-Destroying Pakistani infrastructure by nationalizing private sectors, banks, schools, industries, utilities and any service oriented entities.

                              4-Bringing low class, uneducated, unskilled, illiterate and incompetent people getting jobs just because they belonged to certain areas of Pakistan, by bringing shameful quota system.

                              5-Thereby denying competent and deserving people losing the opportunities to serve the country just because they were not the citizens of certain favored areas,....(Pakistan is still paying the price for his action promoting illiterate people in its basic infrastructure.)

                              6- Creating corrupt domicile system.

                              All of these will remain as evidences of huge crimes Mr. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto committed against Pakistan.

                              Shame on him!




                              Despite all of the good he did and yes indeed he did a lot of good.

                              Yet, when we look at his actions, his good is overwhelmed by his evil racist and hateful nature, greed for power, anti-democratic action, pompous attitude.
