Pakistan’s FM unveils Benazir Bhutto’s wax figure at Madame Tussauds in Dubai

A wax figure of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto was unveiled at the Madame Tussauds museum in Dubai on Sunday.

It features the ex-premier in a green shalwar kameez and white dupatta, the outfit she donned when she was sworn in as the first woman prime minister of Pakistan on December 2, 1988.

Benazir’s son and Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari attended the unveiling of the figure along with other dignitaries and diplomats.

Speaking at the ceremony, Bilawal said his mother was a “symbol of democracy, freedom and equal rights for women across the world” and portrayed the progressive face of Pakistan.

“We have a close attachment to this city and country. We are immensely grateful that the memory of our mother, Benazir Bhutto, is being honoured here in the form of this wax statue,” he added.
