I’ll be honest and admit that I hadn’t ever paid attention to Benazir Bhutto until I heard about her assassination. It shocked a nation and the world, and after reading about her I could see why. She was truly a polarizing figure in the Muslim world. She was going to become a pillar of democracy in a region where that seems to be lacking.
And then her assassination shocked the world and “transformed her from political messiah into a martyr for the common man.”
Bhutto is a documentary and biography of her life. It screens today at the main public library at 2:30pm.
