Bhutto Coin?


So Quaid’s on a Re. 1 coin and Ms. Bhutto will get a Re.10 one. Yup that’s the news.

BBC reports:

Pakistan is to issue a commemorative coin to mark the first anniversary of the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

The State Bank of Pakistan will issue about 300,000 special 10-rupee (16 US cents) coins.

The coin will read in Urdu, “Daughter of the East, Benazir Bhutto“.

Ms Bhutto was killed in a suicide bomb and gun attack in Rawalpindi on 27 December last year after an election rally for her Pakistan People’s Party.

The coin will be issued on 27 December, the bank announced.

Ms Bhutto has already had Islamabad’s international airport named after her, along with a hospital in Rawalpindi and a key road.

    shut up pineapple!
    you dont have any rights and it’s a criminal offence to say anything against the daughter of the east (Shaheed bin-te shaheed bin-te Shaheed) when you’re living in Benaziristan!

    Bhutto ko Bhugtou

    All I can say, thanks to moulvi, lawyers and media this confused nation will have to endure this.

    Perhaps next would be the turn of the stupid and equally corrupt: Sharif’s. I guess you get what you deserve.

    Guzra hua zamanaa ataa nahein dubaara, hafiz khuda tumhara.

    agree with durranee.
    and who was Quaid-e-azam? im astonished tooday, how even he got place on rupee one coin? and why quaid is there on every currency note? if this "Elected govt" kept on ruling, oh sorry "ruining", soon its going to be replaced by quaid-e-awam
    @wkhanG: it wasnt a blast it was fire due to short circuit, thats what nazim javed ikhlas said on TV, but you know facts change every minute ;)

    @ kaami on December 20th

    What you are saying now George Bernard Shaw said it long time back:

    "Democracy is a device that ensures we shall be governed no better than we deserve."

    However, why only blame the moulvis, media and lawyers. Why not blame you and me and the rest as well.

    Let’s boycott this coin.

    @ kaami on December 20th

    Sir, I have endured all 61 years of Pakistan. Pray which GUZRA HUA ZAMAANA you are feeling so nostalgic about!!

  12. kabirdas on December 21st, 2008 @ 12:07 am

    @ sufiblade on December 20th: "Let’s boycott this coin."

    That will be a sign of our being alive which we are not. Had we been alive we would have not come to this sorry state of affair.

  13. durranee on December 21st, 2008 @ 1:20 am

    that jerk, "guzra howa zamana" is the one who laid foundation for these jerks to rule us or as duffer said ruin us

    enough personality loving for me, Supermacy of constitution is most important! even if you’re an angel and you voilate the constitution than you should be trialed and hanged till death!!

    Enough with that!

    WHAT THE F***

    now we have thugs and corrupts on over coins?

    Doomsday situation

  16. kabirdas on December 21st, 2008 @ 10:53 pm

    @ durranee on December 21st.

    It didn’t occur to me which was the ‘Guzra Hua Zamana’ our friend Kaami was referring to. Now I understand what he meant.
    I agree 200% with you. Any body who violates the constitution should not only be hanged but also left hanging at some place where it rots and is seen by all to learn a lesson for all time to come.
    Indeed yellow saw is his gift to us.

  17. kabirdas on December 21st, 2008 @ 10:58 pm

    @ MB (kar_munib) on December 21st.

    Nevertheless there is one consolation. The thugs and corrupts have been dry cleaned and washed by NRO.

  18. kaami on December 22nd, 2008 @ 6:53 am

    We demanded the return of the thiefs, it was our judges who didnt have the guts to punish them over a decade, despite the evidence. Exile was the only option left, to ensure that they dont return to power but our nation is impatient, come 1997 all hell was broken loose, the govt was made weak and internal and external presuure for the return of both the thieves was enormous, and they did. Thanks to the factors mentioned earlier plus Suadia and USA.

    Now all the PTI’ians are screaming NRO, NRO… they were instrumental in weakening the state. All these theifs would not have been allowed to return, if we had patience and supported the state…instead we got duped by fanatics and misguided movement mongers.

    If it was upto "Guzraa hua Zamanaa" these criminals would have never returned. He had guts whilst rest of us have none, all we can do is whine and curse.

  19. kaami on December 22nd, 2008 @ 6:56 am

    There is nobody else to blame its us who have destabilized the state, triggering the flight of the capital and talent. We have stabbed ourselves in the back, how dare we complain.

  20. kaami on December 22nd, 2008 @ 7:40 am


    Since we are talking of jerks, here are a few more who are directly responsible for the current state of affairs of this country;

    1/ Osama Bin Laden and his band of brothers including, Hameed Gul, Qazi Sahib, Lal Masjid Crack pots, Baitullah Mahsood and Imran Khan.

    2/ Lawyer Baradari. It is now evident that their tofaan-e-badtameezee, was nothing but a front by PPP. Since Zardari has pulled the plug, they are no where.

    So my friend endure, atleast they are keeping the facists at bay, lets see how long they last, meantime the radicals prepare to rally behind the stupid Sharif’s. In all this there is the "Constitution of the Screwed up Islamic Republic of Pakistan", somewhere? so better lick it now before it looses…..
