“But you can never ship off the hangman’s tree or outcast a political philosophy […] which is the reason, there is nobody to take your name, yet in each side of Pakistan, there are individuals to take Nawaz Sharif and Benazir Bhutto’s names.”
She also paid tribute to the late Justice Waqar Ahmed Seth for convicting Gen. Pervez Musharraf, “who is the enemy of Benazir and of the Constitution”.
