Social Media Up in Arms Over Killing of an Innocent


The death of Naqeebullah Mehsud, a Pushtoon who moved from South Waziristan to Karachi, in an ‘encounter’ led by Senior Superintendent of Police Rao Anwar has been highlighted by the social media owing to the fact that the deceased had no affiliation with any of the terrorist organizations.

The claims made by the Police that the 27-year-old Naqeeb belonged to Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) have not convinced anyone on social media.

Furthermore, the relatives of the slain Pushtoon have made it clear that Naqeeb had no association with any of the terrorist organizations named by the Police department, rather he was a shop owner who loved modelling.

Pakistani Twitterati and civil society activists have sparked a movement, demanding justice for the victim of the Karachi Police’s high-handedness.

Here’s what people are saying about the issue.

Everyone stands against the unjust killing of the Pushtoon.

Another example?

SSP Rao Anwar needs to be questioned.

There must be a judicial inquiry.

Such acts must be condemned and culprits must be interrogated.

What message are we giving to the world?

Rao Anwar and the government must be held accountable.

Justice for Naqib is still trending on Twitter.

target killer?

How hard it must be for his parents!

We are ashamed!
