[287] Murtaza focused much of his criticism on Bhutto's husband Zardari, whom he blamed of being responsible for government corruption. [110], In July 1985, Shahnawaz died under unexplained circumstances in the French city of Cannes.

Are they not Muslim countries? [242] In October, Zardari was arrested on charges of extortion. [176] This opposition was substantial and contributed to Bhutto's inability to pass any major legislation during her first term in office. [473], Bhutto was committed to democracy and modernisation,[406] and believed that the future of the Islamic world lay in the embrace of these processes. [262], Realising the threat to her premiership posed by an unsympathetic president, Bhutto ensured that a PPP member, Farooq Leghari, was nominated and duly elected to the presidency in November. In 1995, Benazir Bhutto made another state visit to the United States and held talks with U.S. President Bill Clinton. [6][7], Bhutto Zardari was appointed as a Chairman of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP),[8] on 30 December 2007,[9] at the age of 19.

[232] In the meantime, Bhutto and her husband were forbidden from leaving Pakistan,[232] although they purchased an apartment in the Queensgate area of London. [189] In the presidential election, Bhutto initially proposed Malik Qasim, who had been involved in the MRD, as the PPP's nominee, but the military refused to accept this. [362][363] Musharraf also consolidated power around himself; in June 2001 he appointed himself to the Presidency, holding this position alongside his positions as chief executive and chief of the army staff.

[325] After a year of study, Bhutto implemented and enforced the Eighth Plan to overcome the stagflation by creating a dependable and effective mechanism for accelerating economic and social progress. She was often criticised as being politically inexperienced, was accused of being corrupt, and faced much opposition from Pakistan's Islamist lobby for her secularist and modernizing agenda. [145] The ISI also engaged in vote rigging in an attempt to secure an IJI victory. [347] Tensions between India and Pakistan resulted in the Kargil War of 1999; Bhutto observed the conflict from abroad, describing it as "Pakistan's biggest blunder".

[413], Bhutto described the main problem facing her country as the clash between "moderation and extremism",[414] and was pessimistic about her safety. [85] The MRD called for a four-point program: an end to martial law, the restoration of the 1973 constitution, parliamentary elections, and the transfer of political power from the military to the elected representatives. [44] While in Simla, she attracted much attention from both local and national Indian press,[19] the first time she received such notice.

[267] Allen suggested that measures like these reflected how Bhutto had "given up on all her previous ideals and simply caved into the culture of corruption—indeed excelled in it, as she had excelled in so many other areas". [165] She personally stated that her electoral victory was "the tipping point in the debate raging in the Muslim world on the role of women in Islam".

[69] Socialists, intellectuals, and journalists were arrested. [196] Relations between Bhutto and Pakistan's civil service also deteriorated, causing paralysis of many state affairs; Bhutto spoke of it as "Zia's bureaucracy" and her perceived anti-Punjabi stance impacted many civil servants, of whom 80% were Punjabi. [65] In the wake of Bhutto's death, the election was postponed from January to February 2008, when it resulted in the formation of a coalition government bringing together the PPP and the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz).

Today, events such as the recent massacre of school children in Peshawar, reflect what Bhutto was warning against.
