Fatima Bhutto Criticizes Khan’s ‘Opportunistic’ Politics

Fatima Bhutto –the grand daughter of former premier Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and  Benazir Bhutto’s niece criticized the Imran Khan politics by terming it opportunistic and against the very idea of women empowerment.

“My criticism of Imran Khan’s politics has been that I don’t see any conversation with women in his politics. I don’t see a conversation that empowers the provinces. I see a lot of opportunism in it,” she said in an interview to NDTV.

“We have a lot of cases of a lot of fear and intimidation and unfortunately I don’t really see that this government is taking any steps to reverse that. If anything its furthering that,” said the author of Songs Of Blood And Sword.

Fatima Bhutto has stayed away from politics amid the loss of her entire family to ruthless murders and extra judicial killings preferred writing instead. Her fifth book, a novel called "The Runways" is likely to hit the shelves in October.

“I was encouraged from a young age by my father to write and to read a lot. I don’t think it is a divorce from politics, I think a lot of what I write is very political,” she said.

“He’s a young man. He has been through a lot of trauma and violence. I hope he will be well and I wish him only well as a person. I prefer not to really comment on the politics of it all,” Fatima remarked when asked to comment about politics of her cousin Bilawal.

The young writer is not a big fan of social media.

“Twitter has become so murky… It has become a platform for a lot of aggression and a lot of hate. Instagram I mean I don’t really understand what its redeeming qualities are because it is basically just people competing with each other and you know this terrible narcissistic one-upmanship. Facebook – I want nothing to do with it ever."
