The former Prime Minister of Pakistan has been assassinated by a suicide bomber. Very sad. She was a very courageous lady. I admit that i thought she had been back in Pakistan for some sort of personal gain…but now I see that she truly was for the people–risking even her life for them (she knew the risk and was back in Pakistan anyway).
Here’s a quote from a CNN interview with her that they’ve been playing:
I know the past has been tragic, but I’m an optimist by nature. I put my faith in the people of Pakistan. I put my faith in God. I see that what I am doing is for a good cause, for a right cause, to save Pakistan from extremists and militants and to build regional security. I know the dangers out there, but I’m prepared to take those risks.
If I was asked to ‘name a good muslim’ I would name her.
She leaves behind her husband and their 3 children.
Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord…
