At approximately 8.15pm local time, Malik Mabroor Ahmad was shot point blank near his office by an unidentified gunman. Upon hearing the gunfire, the brother of the deceased, Malik Waseem Ahmad, rushed to the scene, however by the time he had arrived Malik Mabroor Ahmad had already passed away.
Malik Mabroor Ahmad was a peaceful and law abiding citizen and a renowned lawyer. He is survived by his wife, three sons and two daughters.
The spokesman for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, Abid Khan said:
Malik Mabroor Ahmad was very well respected amongst the local community and was known for his kindness. He served the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat with great distinction throughout his life.
A number of prominent Ahmadi Muslims have been martyred in Sindh Province over the past few years but those responsible have not been brought to justice and remain at large.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat calls on the international community and media to highlight the continued persecution of minorities in Pakistan. If such hatred and sectarianism is allowed to continue then it is inevitable that further tragedies will occur.
