Islamabad: Pakistan Academy of Letters (PAL) launched a book titled 'Shaheed Benazir Bhutto' here on Tuesday.

The book published in English comprises of columns, essays and impressions of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto.

Speaking at a briefing about the book, Chairman PAL Fakhar Zaman said that this is first time that English writings relating to Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Shaheed are collected in a book form and this book will be a reference document for the researchers of all over the world. He said that this book would be widely appreciated by those who knew its subject in any way, and also by future generations who will thus make their first personal acquaintance of a most remarkable person in Pakistan's history.

Fakhar Zaman said that the high degree of clarity in Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Shaheed's thinking was well reflected in her writings and speeches, which always carried great effect. She cultivated these skills with care, and held writers, artists, and journalists in great esteem. Her assassination and its likely link to the international war against terror were too serious matters to be overlooked by the national and international community, Fakhar Zaman added.

He said that PAL has launched a new project in which a book will be produced consisting of articles, columns, and memoirs on the life of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Shaheed in English by different writers, scholars and journalists from all over the world.

Fakhar Zaman said that by publishing these books PAL is preserving the history and it's also a way to pay homage to the great leader who sacrificed herself for the restoration of democracy and people of Pakistan. He also announced that another book titled 'Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Shaheed as a writer and intellectual' is also under publication by PAL.

PAL is also going to reprint 'Bhutto Trial' in two volumes; a book consisting of documents and reports regarding the trial of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Shaheed. For PAL is also working to produce a selection of writings of anonymous writers, relating to the legendary personality of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Shaheed.
