Some inexperienced or amateur artists’ attempt to pay a tribute to a political hero has gone terribly wrong.
A poorly-made statue of the slain former prime minister Benazir Bhutto installed in a park in Quetta, the capital of Balochistan, has drawn backlash. A picture of Bhutto’s statue is now circulating on the internet.
Sharing the picture of the statue, Twitterati questioned Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) representatives let this happen.
The statue has been described as defamatory and insulting to the brave political leader who was assassinated in a suicide attack on December 27, 2007.
In response to severe criticism Hayat Khan Achakzai, coordinator of PPP in Balochistan, assured that the statue will be replaced.
For the unversed, Bhutto was the first and only woman of Pakistan to hold the office of the Prime Minister twice. On December 27, 2007, she was assasinated at Liaquat Bagh in Rawalpindi.
