The American Islamic Congress today condemned the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. Executive Director Zainab Al-Suwaij issued the following statement:

"Benazir Bhutto was one of the most prominent Muslim women in the world. Her murder is a wake-up call to Muslims and all people of conscience.

"Ms. Bhutto was a model of independence and courage for Muslim women around the world. After she was nearly killed upon her recent return to Pakistan, she could have taken a safe exit. Instead she chose to stand up and speak out despite the risks.

"Young Muslim women around the world should not let this murder dissuade them from speaking out and claiming their rightful place as equals in society.

"Coming just after Muslims around the world celebrated Eid Al-Adha, Bhutto's murder is a reminder of the struggle to assert the sanctity of human life. A light has been snuffed out.

"We extend our condolences to Bhutto's family and to the families of all the people murdered and maimed in the wave of recent suicide bombings around the world."

The American Islamic Congress is a civil-rights organization promoting tolerance and the exchange of ideas among Muslims and between other peoples. With the motto "passionate about moderation," the organization leads initiatives around the world and has offices in Washington, Boston, Egypt, and Iraq.
