Wow !! What a tragedy. Very sad indeed.
Who could be behind this? terrorists? or Musharaf himself? a big question.
yeah that is a good question was it a terrorist or mushariff. Either way what a tragedy!
i was stunned looking at the news this morning…this is the kind of stories you think would never happen but when they do it just hits you. Goes into my stunning news records along with the Death of the Late Yasser Araft ( God bless his soul) Saddam Hussen and now this. Oh well, too sad indded. aselamualikum
Very Sad News …
a big loss for the people of Pakistan and Democracy in the region.
There is a Somali saying “Af-Dabooland Waa Dahab” which roughly translates, “A quiet mouth is GOLD". Before she even become prime minister, this woman bragged about how she disliked about Muslim groups simply to get outside support. She declared war on the Muslim groups and she become the first victim. This could even be the work of Musharaf the dictator. Only Allah knows who is behind this ugly action. ALLa Ya Rahma.
May the almighty God help Pakistan out!
End of the road for a corrupt ruthless dictator.
Her husband used to force major companies to issue him shares throught her reign and was an organised mafia
No sympathy for her,She before hand killed her own brother for power, Now the head of the Mafia family is gone.
Democracy means peoples choice not American choice.
Who did it
The usual suspect
It is a very confusing issue. Is the Pakistani Intelligence involved? It is realy not clear. Everybody will try to spin it to its own advantage. What is certain is that Pakistan is indeed in turmoil. Given the existance of Nukes in the region, it is really scary. What would be the ramification for democratic struggles all over the world in general and Ethiopia in particular? lets discuss this.
Very shocking news. She was the real democratic who stands to the pakistani people.
This assassination should be for the dictator millitary government General Musharuf, not for the real democratic woman. Though really sad news to the people of Pakistan. Yeha
I knew that would happen. It ain’t no news for me.
yeah it is big loss to the region to get killed a such strong woman with democratic ideology.
Stay tunn bro time is getting close and closer how many days now? not far. Yeha
It is really very sad let god bless her soul.
Musharaf will definatly impose his state of emergency just like Zenawi. I hate dictators.
It’s sad how certain people are unable to share their views peaceful and respect all human life. We must condom all kills and those who believe in this type of murderous should be brought to justice. This is sad for Pakistani democracy. This lady stood for democracy and want all Pakistani to enjoy freedom…
very sad news! i wonder why people who stand for equal right and democracy could not last for long. she was determined to bring some change to her people, i hope there will be some who can recandle her message of hope and peace.
i wonder if you all feel the same if this was MMELES ZENAWI? I KNOW HOW I WOULD FEEL… I WILL REJOICE BECAUSE THAT IS ONE MAN THAT IS NO GOOD FOR HIS PEOPLE.
What a loss? How long terrorist dictators are supported by US and killed nations? The same thing is holding for Meles Zenawi supported by US. I don’t think US can be trusted any way. Why not US lesson people of developing nation instead of supporting terrorist leaders to make peace. Peace won’t come in thiher way for ever. They all are wrong!
This is a very sad day the people of pakistan i dont undersatand how humanbing is so cruel I dont think this is the solution to kill somebody to solve the problem. I think all peace love people we must pray god to protect our plante from those barbaric people.
GOD BLESS ETHIOPIA:
It is a sad day, i was shoked to hear the news but i guess life goes on..
