Put Zulfiqar Ali Bhuttos image on currency: Pakistan People’s Party

Lahore: The Pakistan People's Party (PPP) on Sunday demanded in a resolution to feature the image of the party founder Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto on currency notes, news agency ANI reported citing ARY News.

The call to make Bhutto a national hero comes at a seminar titled 'Bhutto Reference and History' more than 40 years after he was hanged on April 4, 1979.

The resolution, which praised the Supreme Court's remark that Butto’s trail leading to his execution was unfair, sought to confer on him the country’s highest civilian honour, "Quaid-e-Awam" (Leader of the People).

The resolution also pushed for raising a monument in Bhutto's honour and declaring his mausoleum as a national shrine.

Furthermore, it called for instituting a "Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Award" for democracy activists who have sacrificed their lives for the cause.

In March, the country’s National Assembly in a resolution called Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto's trial a judicial murder.

The Supreme Court made it clear in its reserved opinion following a presidential reference that the former prime minister did not get a chance to a "fair trial".

A nine-judge bench announced its opinion on the presidential reference seeking whether it can revisit its verdict.

Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, the first elected prime minister of the country, was handed a death sentence during former military ruler General (retired) Ziaul Haq's regime.

Bhutto was charged with the murder of a political rival Nawab Mohammed Ahmed Qasuri and was hanged amid appeals for clemency from heads of states.
