It’s been ten years since Benazir Bhutto, the first female Prime Minister in the Muslims world was killed. A lot has changed since then. Somethings for better while others for worst. But her memory still very much still remains the same in the hearts of many. These include not just Pakistanis but people across the globe.
British Prime Minister Theresa May has a special connection with Benazir Bhutto
Addressing the United Nations General Assembly, Theresa May gave a heartwarming speech
Theresa recalled the time when Benazir Bhutto introduced her to her now husband Phillip at an Oxford University Conservatives disco in 1976
She went on to describe, Benazir’s killers as people who “actively rejected the values that all of us here at the United Nations stand for”.
The British PM’s touching tribute to Benazir made a lot of people emotional
What a tribute to #SMBB, to Pakistan and our sacrifices against terrorism.

Among other things, Theresa May also brought up Pakistan’s ongoing troubles with terrorism, during her speech at the UN. She expressed empathy with victims of terrorism attacks in the country over the years. “When I think of a hundred and thousands of victims of terrorism in countries across the world I think of their friends, their families, their communities devastated by this evil and I say, enough is enough”, she said.
The British Prime Minister also urged world leaders to formulate a concrete plan to effectively deal with terrorism across the globe.
