Readings 104: Reading Bhutto

One of the Muslim ladies I considered to be strongly attached to democracy is Benazir Bhutto, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan. In her book, which is my best read in the past weeks, she detailed how Pakistan became to be what it is today, including those candid depictions of her historic coming home from exile. These are poignant descriptions of how a lady who became the most respected and powerful leader of the Islamic world have battled against the forces that toppled democracy in Pakistan and have sought reconciliation which has in fact, never been achieved after her assassination.
Benazir Bhutto’s book “RECONCILIATION – Islam, Democracy and the West” is something of a great read. I bought it recently in a quaint bookstore down in my home city and grabbed it right away at first sight since I had been looking for this book when I was in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia when it was first released.
I enjoyed this book and I know you will too. Grab yours now.
