Political Importance of Fatima Bhutto

Having a family name as “Bhutto” itself brings political importance to a person. Because Bhutto family plays an important role in Pakistan’s Political History, which cannot be skipped. Still unlike her cousin Bilawal Zardari Bhutto, she did not take benefit of being part of Bhutto Family. She was herself very talented and she proved herself to be self made. Her success totally belongs to her own personality. She could have gain political sympathy as her father Murtaza Bhutto was brutally murdered outside his house. But she rejected the politics of Pakistan, and kept her achievements linked with her art and point of views.

In current political situation, Pakistan’s Politics need a face. A face which can be seen as a Leader in Sindh province. Because of extreme corruption during last 8 years of PPP Govt in Sindh, people have started losing hope. There is disappointment everywhere. The only hope people had was in Imran Khan, but Sindh Politics is so much tied with family dynasty that Imran Khan is unable to defeat the corrupt system yet.

Sindh politics requires a face. If Fatima Bhutto joins hands with Imran Khan politically. They could both destroy the Kingdom created by PPP during last decade. This is the only possible way right now, as Fatima Bhutto has very mature sense of politics. On the other hand, Bilawal Bhutto is a Home Made Political Product, which is labeled as a Leader just because of his parents.

But the question is that will Fatima Bhutto jump into politics of Pakistan ? If she does, the equation of success in Sindh will have two parts.

1. Supporters of Imran Khan
2. Name of Fatima Bhutto

As they both have extremely charismatic personalities, their combination of Leadership will easily make Sindh a better place to live.
