Fatima Bhutto is the new 'hottie' on Facebook

February 07, 2008 19:46 IST

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is no longer 'hot' or 'cute', well at least on the social networking website Facebook, as his smart and savvy cousin Fatima Bhutto has toppled him to become the undisputed new 'hottie'.

After a rap from Facebook's administration, the many fake Bilawal accounts vanished, only to be replaced by scores of fan clubs created by admirers of 25-year-old Fatima.

Fatima, a writer, poet and grassroots worker, has been very vocal about Bilawal becoming chairman of the Pakistan People's Party after the assassination of his mother, former premier Benazir Bhutto [Images].

But not being one to believe in dynastic politics has just earned Fatima more fans.

'Fatima Bhutto the future of PPP' is one of the fan accounts created on the global network of Facebook that has 131 members.

The post on Fatima reads, "With looks of Mir (Murtaza Bhutto) and intellect that marks her as one of the Bhutto clan, Fatima Bhutto represents Generation-Y of Pakistani political leadership".

Another account is called 'Let's not assassinate Fatima Bhutto because she's the hottest Bhutto alive'. The post with many opinions on Fatima describes her as 'gorgeous and smart'.

The 'Pakistan's new leader Fatima Bhutto' account asks members to support her as 'Pakistan's next prime minister'.

Nauman Rashid, a member, wrote that she is the best bet. "I believe she'll be the best leader for the party. She's very educated and charismatic like Benazir. I just hope (Asif Ali) Zardari doesn't take over the party!"

There's also a 'Fatima Bhutto vs Bilawal Bhutto' account where almost every one has chosen Fatima as the Bhutto heir.

"Bilawal is not a Bhutto, he is only a puppet. Zardari now controls the PPP and by the time Bilawal comes to Pakistan, his father would have ruined a lot of things for him. Fatima, on the other hand, is ready to lead any political movement," said a comment.

"She is young, daring and smart. She has an opinion which is much more sound than anyone here. If Fatima decides to get into politics, I would go out to vote".

'Fatima Bhutto is a hottie' is accumulating fans by the day.

"Finally someone hot in the Bhutto family. Intellectual and beautiful, a lethal combination, we wish her all the best," wrote a fan.

As for Fatima, she has announced loud and clear that none of the accounts on Facebook were created by her.

Interestingly, an account has come up in her 17-year-old half-brother Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Junior's name too.

The comment on Zulfiqar Jr reads, "This is a group for all those who think that Zulfiqar Ali Jr is hotter than or will make a better leader than Bilawal Bhutto".
