Founder of Pakistan People’s Party, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was a prominent politician, who brought about numerous reforms and changes in the governance of Pakistan, thereby taking it from a presidentially-led country to a parliamentary-led one. It was under his democratic premiership that the country witnessed the declaration of Pakistan's third 1973 constitution. Furthermore, Bhutto led Pakistan’s nuclear weapon programme, despite several shortcomings in the form of limited financial resources and strong western oppositions and is thus regarded as the Father of Nuclear Weapons Program in Pakistan. It was his strong personality clubbed with his aggressive nature and immense determination that made him the country’s greatest civilian leader, with him dominating almost the entire decade of the 70s. Born in a political environment, he rose to prominence as a leader soon enough. He served two important positions for the country, that of the 4th President from 1971 until 1973 and 9th Prime Minister from 1973 to 1977. Till date, he remains one of most controversial leaders of the country.
