Time article on Benazir: Martyr without a cause

There is a taboo in the Pakistani society about criticizing the life and death of the deceased. This was one of the major reasons that even the staunchest opponents of the late Benazir Bhutto avoided making any statements against her after her recent assassination.

Maybe this is why I found this poignant Time magazine article, about the Martyr without a Cause, worth sharing.
