Benazirs son Bilawal will also read out Benazir’s instructions about the future of her party.

After escaping narrowly in the October 18 attack on her homecoming rally in Karachi, Benazir wrote a message and said that it should be opened and read in case of her death.

On Saturday, Benazirs husband Asif Ali Zardari said: “We have called for a meeting and her message will be read out there and the instructions she has left will be read out there.

The PPPs central executive committee will meet in a short while in Benazirs ancestral hometown.

Benazir was assassinated in Rawalpindi on Thursday. The cause of her death is yet not certain, as the Pakistan Government and her party are citing different reasons for it.

Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud has denied any involvement in Benazir’s death, but the Musharraf regime is maintaining that he is responsible for it saying no criminal would ever accept responsibility for his crimes and that the government version was accurate. (ANI)
