Deeply saddened to hear news of H.E Wajid Shamsul Hasan former twice High Commissioner to who served with distinction/dedication & my most wonderful colleague when we both worked with MBB Benazir Bhutto pictured here.
If I were the campaign manager for the next PPP election and were told to pick a book to send to every potential voter along with the party manifesto, then this would be: Bhutto Khandan Meri Yaadon Mein of Wajid Shamsul Hasan.
This is the narrative of an insider who has spent his life on the orbit of the Bhutto family. Wajid Shamsul Hasan selected outstanding events that the Bhutto family admired and concealed any factual weaknesses that might hinder the narrative. Hassan hopes to express his pro-Bhutto views in the process of sketching the background of the incident. He will walk you through the details, even if it is only fleeting, and give you a glimpse of the past.
Read this book to understand how civil servants and other influential people at the time brought the same culture and bureaucratic corruption from India with very few stationery boxes.
This is the same as the favoritism and nepotism that helped divide India and later led to the establishment of Bangladesh.Take the distribution of evacuees’ property among the claimants as an example. Wajid Shamsul Hasan explained how his politically connected families managed to obtain spacious housing allocations one by one from the property committee of the evacuees.
Each one was better than the previous one, but not good enough, until they finally chose one opposite the Prime Minister’s Office because his father was a famous official of the Muslim League, the guardian of Mr. Jinnah’s diary and personal letters, and because of his Father’s media published the Union’s newspaper in Delhi: Daily Dawn.
