This political scandal of an era in Pakistan had a Bangladeshi hand. It was September last year when Bangladeshi tabloid Blitz reported that Pakistan’s foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar is suspected to be in a relationship with Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, son of President Zardari.
Blitz reported extensively on the affair. The tabloid was quoted saying, “While the affair between Hina Rabbani Khar and Benazir Bhutto’s son Bilawal might be a bit of a surprise to the outside world, many people who move in the power corridors of Pakistan have been privy to this news for some time now. While Hina’s high profile ministerial position makes it difficult for her to go on shopping trips with her lover in London and Switzerland, these visits have happened in the past.”
