Last thoughts on Benazir Bhutto

There are any number of perspectives one can put on today’s assassination of  the Pakistani opposition leader in Rawalpindi: a mindless act of cowardice by bearded death cultists, an event possibly orchestrated by the Musharraf administration, or the death blow to the already fragile process for democracy in Pakistan, to name a few. In either way, it’s a tragic occurence which is likely to shape the development in the region for quite some time ahead. Bhutto may be gone, but her legacy isn’t – the fight for democracy and progressive values in the Muslim world. This is not the time to quit that fight.
