A man, still in our memories…!

No one killed Mir Murtaza Bhutto Shaheed.


I am thinking how I should start to write on a man who was/is Hero of people. Of course, he couldn’t be Hero of Rich Class but He was a Hero of people who live under the open sky on the streets and passing their lives at poorest home. 

Definitely, I am writing for a Hero and Heroes live in the heart of people, so how is it possible that Hero can be lived around the golden walls? In fact, you are not be able to paint a Hero but heroes come up from the worst situation of society and when a person fights against evils that are called Heroes.

As my beloved journalist Oriana Fallaci once said, Heroes can be sweet, and yes Mir Murtaza Bhutto Shaheed can be sweet as He is a Hero.

Nowadays, generation clicks internet and sees all things; however do they see real face of our society? Life changes after each minutes and we all are running, not slowly passing life that’s reason, many times we miss dew of life.

A city of Karachi that is running too fast and has jam-packed traffic, not only this but this city has new style of hair and dressing which give well-dressed up generation. Do they know for their real Heroes?

After a long time, I was crossing 70 Clifton/Clifton sides and looking at pictures of Bhutto (s) Family, Shaheed Benazir Bhutto and Mir Murtaza Bhutto both were killed by Bullets.

A Bullet that changed whole scenario of life and life of Politics. Those, who wanted to kill them; they could not kill because they are alive in the memories of people and heart of History.

Maybe, while reading someone thinks that I am using beautiful words and trying to promote dynasty. I don’t follow Dynasty and even dislike using promotion of family-ism, for this reason I myself have removed family name.

Well, come back on the topic. So we were talking on martyred Mir Murtaza Bhutto, Still I have not forgotten words of boy that I listened before years, who was using ill-words and footless blames on him, Oh! poor boy..! While listening, his immature talks, words of Albert Camus running in my mind when he said that “What is Rebel? When a man says No.”

Mir was a rebel who said, No; to the dictatorship of Zial u Haq. What is a meaning of Terrorism? Do people realize before using it for an innocent person. When you go and deliberately give harm innocent people that cause to be huge worst storm in peaceful society, it calls ill-action or Terrorism. It is very easy to use words, need to understanding of worth of words. People are easily using words without understanding of its importance.

If one calls a terrorist dictator Zia, it would be no harm because it is fact that he gave birth of terrorism in the name of Mujaheedin.

Mir was a Hero who refused to accept greedy-power, who rejected bloody steps of dictatorship and who stood up by poor people.

Unfortunate, destiny of life played tricky game with him and his beloved sister Shaheed Benazir Bhutto. Benazir Bhutto was saying that Mir is my backbone and time has proved when he was killed after than his sister was self-imposed exile. When she returned and then she was killed by bullet.

I would not like to jump into current situation of Bhutto family that what Ms. Sanam Bhutto or Fatima Bhutto thinks. No one can measure anguish of anyone.

When I got chance to meet with Sanam Bhutto at Karachi Literature Festival, I didn’t ask any question regarding Politics or her family because I was thinking that unkind-politics has snatched her whole family and what should I ask and how would she answer? When you know, a person walks on edge of sorrows and you ask what or how do you feel it? It means while asking questions, you are adding on sorrows. I preferred to take silence, hence thoughts ran fast and then I could only tell to my inner thoughts that a sword of unkind-power-politics kills people and leaves behind only orphan-hearts. Probably whenever she walks in the city of Karachi, her childhood memories knock at the door of loneliness, however Bhutto Family has suffered, enough.

Today’s people can think what Media speaks and feeds to the society. Would people feel pain of struggle of Shaheed Mir Murtaza Bhutto? Many people are giving different colours on the story of disagreement between Shaheed Benazir Bhutto and Shaheed Mir though Arrow of Bloody-Politics has killed both of them but still people don’t count their love as they are only counting numbers of reservations among them.

Now we all can cross road of 70 Clifton, where he was martyred. And carelessly passing remarks that he was that and this? Fact is, he was a Rebel? It would be right, if I say he was a mythological character in politics of Pakistan.

I always call him Che-Mir because he was a rebel character it is painful that his struggle has not received honest eyes which can show real picture. Even in his case when Local Court released all blameworthy persons on 5 December, 2009. If no one killed Mir Murtaza Bhutto, who opened fire on him. Queen of Justice is unable to see, on the other hand people have eyes and asking who opened fire that caused of injuries and then Mir walked away for not returning forever.

A man, still in our memories and road of 70 Clifton reminds us that a rebel heart was killed by Bullet but he is always alive in the heart of poor people and History.
