The late mother of Bakhtawar Zardari Bhutto, “Benazir Bhutto” — who names means ‘no example’ — was really an iconic politician of Pakistan. And now its time of her daughter who is going to debut her political career from Badeen.
Will the 25-year old Bakhtawar Zardari Bhutto be the next ‘benazir’ because she is reportedly slated for bigger roles in the near future. Born in the political Bhutto dynasty, she has thousands of political followers and PPP jiyalas due to legacy of her legend mother.
According to the reports, she has started taking part in political activities and senior women activists have been asked to train her. The PPP relies on the Bhutto name and legacy to bind its supporters.

Bilawal was also not in the country for the 36th death anniversary of his grandfather Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, for which a mega event was held on April 4 in Garhi Khuda Bux.

She is a social worker of Pakistan Peoples Party’s (PPP) and is actively involved in humanitarian and social activities. She was born at Karachi but now a days, she is living in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Bakhtawar Zardari Bhutto is 25-year old as was born in Pakistan on January 25, 1990. She has two siblings, elder brother Bilawal and younger sister, Asifa.
Her grandfather, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, died at the gallows, hanged in 1979 after being deposed in a military coup led by General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq, the Chief of Army Staff.
Her mother Benazir Bhutto — the 11th Prime Minister of Pakistan — was killed in a bomb and bullet attack in 2007, months after she returned to Pakistan from eight years in self-exile.
