The only president in the history of Pakistan who managed to complete his presidential tenure, Asif Ali Zardari. Despite how Pakistan went through a massive turmoil under his presidency, Zardari still managed to set-in and complete his time as the president.
After winning the elections by taking over his deceased wife, Benazir Bhutto’s place, Zardari entered politics without having any background or previous interests whatsoever. Given his previous record, Mr. 10 Per Cent spent time in jail due to the allegation of corruption in property deals. As the president, he was accused and went on trial regarding various matters, such as property worth billion pounds in Britain, France, Spain, money laundering and Swiss accounts. He has also bee accused of killing his wife’s brother Mir Murtaza Bhutto. To all these accusations, however, he left as innocent.
In the eyes of many Pakistan People’s Party supporters, Zardari managed to keep the legacy of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and his daughter Benazir Bhutto. All of this is what makes Zardari still a followed man in Pakistan.
The former president celebrates his 62nd birthday today and Pakistanis remembered to wish him…well. Aside from his party members, others wished Zardari in their own way.
Someone Called him ‘Nelson Mandella’ and Oh Dear God!

Both PMLN & PTI supporters on social media are abusive & vile but they can never be as bad as Jiyalas comparing Zardari to Nelson Mandela.
