31 July, 2012
LAHORE: President Asif Ali Zardari's son and the ruling Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari was awarded a BA Honours degree in Modern History and Politics at the convocation of Oxford University, last Saturday.
The PPP officially announced its chairman's achievement. Bilawal was accompanied to the event by his aunt Sanam Bhutto and sisters Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari and Aseefa Bhutto Zardari.
Bilawal graduated with the same degree, classification and percentage as his mother, Benazir Bhutto. He had completed his degree in June 2010 but due to political activities in Pakistan was unable to formally receive the degree until now.
Announcing Bilawal as a graduate from Oxford on Twitter, Bakhtawar expressed pride for the Bhutto family, especially for her late mother, and grandfather, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. Celebrating the achievement, some prominent personalities like Sharmila Farooqi and Fiza Batool Gilani offered congratulations to Bakhtawar, saying that this was a proud moment for everyone.
