    Pakistan the country where majority of the people are living below the poverty line and where parents sell their children before committing suicide because they can not afford food to feed them, this is because of the gift given from US (so called war of terror). This time when the people of Pakistan is crying for basic needs i.e. roti, kapra and makkan (food, clothes and shelter)

    PPP Government is all set to build a Benazir Bhutto monument at the cost of Rs 1 Billion in Liaquat Bagh Rawalpindi (the place where Benazir Died). The PPP was founded with the slogan of “Roti, Kapra and Makan”. The founding slogan has lost its meaning as the party has failed to achieve this goal and instead wasting the national wealth on glorifying its late chairperson Benazir Bhutto.



    According to Dawn newspaper story:

    ISLAMABAD, Dec 26: The government is all set to build a Rs1 billion monument at the site in Rawalpindi city where former prime minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in a gun-and-suicide bomb attack on December 27, 2007; sources told Dawn.

    Though the monument would be built in the historical Liaquat Bagh, which falls under the administrative control of the Punjab government, the federal government would provide the fund for the project.

    Leader of the house in the Senate Nayyer Bukhari is heading a steering committee which has been given the responsibility to oversee the project. Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani is expec

    ted to perform the ground breaking at the site on Sunday, marking the second death anniversary of Ms Bhutto.

    Faisal Warsi, who deals with public relations of Senator Bukhari, said a Karachi-based architecture company, ARCO, had been tasked to design the monument.

    In response to a question, Mr Warsi explained that construction of the project would cost around Rs1 billion and the federal government would be bearing all the expenses.

    Explaining the main features of the monument, he said its entrance would be called Bab-i-Benazir and would have a tower in the centre surrounded by a water pool. A special wall called Dewar-i-Awam would be built with Daughter of the East inscribed on it.




    Is this how they (PPP) think they can glorify the personality of late Benazir Bhutto? Is this how an Islamic State is suppose to act? I wonder on what basis our government will justify this cost?

    My question is that did we need Benazir Bhutto Mounment this time? or we need Roti, Kapra and Makkan???

    Why would zardari and lot spend money on poor Pakistanis? Billions of dollars received in past 2 years is set to go to zardari's pocket and he alone is set to take revenge from each and every Pakistani for he being put into jail for 10 years for that he'll torture each Pakistani and he is doing that.
    Of monument is so important why not monument for those thousands of shaheed officers and jawans and civilians of Pakistan? did they not sacrifice their lives for Pakistan?
    Banizir is not Shaheed..Shaheed is someone who dies in the way of Allah or killed by enemies of Islam or by non muslims..She died a fools death and her rivalries possibly pml-N/PML-Q/MQM/zardari and a few goons. Real shaheeds are our awam/army jawans and officers who died in the line of fire.

    This is very much like our own Mayawati trying to set up one huge monument for herself when so many people in UP are under the poverty line.

    These stupid politicians need to be flamed alive

    Rs. 1,000,000,000 for a monument.:what:

    In Pakistan, now a days, spending 1000 a day is a blessing and rich might even don't do so. But lets suppose what Rs 1 Billion worth for a person.

    A person has Rs. 1 Billion. He spends Rs. 1,000 per Day. And to finish Rs. 1 Billion he has to spend Rs. 1,000 every day for 2740 Years.

    365 X 2739 X 1000 = 999,735,000 (Approx. Rs. 1 Billion)

    OMG, its a huge amount.

    Now in a poor country, I think Rs. 500/- is enough for one person's daily food charges.

    For how long Rs. 1 Billion can feed what number of people:

    365 X 25 X 500 X 215 = 980937500 < Rs. 1 Billion.

    You can feed more than 215 people, for 25 years by feeding them a food that costs 500/- per head per day.:woot:

    Do think for a moment.:disagree:

    KIT Out

    If PPP wants to build the monument, then President Zardari should spend the money from his pocket or from PPP party's fund rather than wasting the money of Government of Pakistan. Government's money should be spent on poor Pakistani people.

    And then there were leaders like Ataturk who donated all his possessions to the Turks and M.A Jinnah who refused to go on an official Foreign trip because he thought his poor country can not afford the cost. He was very choosy about his food so the cook came from some other city and the travel expenses were paid from Jinnah's own pocket.

    The great leader and beloved wife of Mr.Zardari has already taken alot from us in her lifetime please for god's sake spare us after your death.

    I feel next year Zardari will change Pakistan name into Benazirsitan

    Example of zardari is:

    bomb phata "BB ke kowahish the"
    Accident huwa "BB ke kowahish the"
    Jahaz land huwa "BB ke kowahish the"
    Jahaz ura "BB ke kowahish the"
    ami nay bulaya "BB ke kowahish the"
    Chachu nay bulaya "BB ke kowahish the"
    Mamo nay bulaya "BB ke kowahish the"
    Pani pyaa "BB ke kowahish the"
    khana khaya "BB ke kowahish the"

    "BB ke kowahish the"
    "BB ke kowahish the"
    "BB ke kowahish the"
    "BB ke kowahish the"
    "BB ke kowahish the"

    bas kahdiya na

    "BB ke kowahish the"

    WTH!!! Zardari

    I am waiting for the day when zardari will say "5 saal lootnay ke dawat musharaf say li the ada usnay luta ub 5 saal sakoon say lootnay doo tang na karoo.

    PAKISTAN KHAPAY "in Punjabi i think Pakistan Khap he raha hey"
