Shahnawaz Bhutto died under mysterious circumstances in his apartment in Paris in the presence of his Afghan wife. Murtaza Bhutto was killed by police in front of his house in Clifton Karachi while his sister was the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Benazir Bhutto died in Rawalpindi, murdered in broad daylight after addressing a rally. They are all called shaheeds, the martyrs. Khalid Khwaja, a former ISI official was kidnapped and brutally murdered by the Taliban. He died for the services he had rendered as an ISI official some years back. The news flash on the national media simply said, He was murdered. I wonder what is the criterion for one to be called a shaheed? Does one have to be from the elite or from the ruling dynasty to be called a shaheed? -DR SHAHID QAYYUM, Lahore, May 4.
