Sindh High Court’s Shia lawyer, Ali Hasnain Bukhari Advocate, embraced martyrdom near his home in Karachi’s Korangi area on Wednesday (today) when notorious Deobandi terrorists of banned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (ASWJ/Sipah-e-Sahaba) opened fire upon him.
Witnesses said armed motorcyclists attacked Bukhari as he was getting in his car to go to work. He was shot twice in the head, they added. Bukhari, a Shia Muslim lawyer, was currently handling a missing person’s case on behalf of the MQM and he was said to be member of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s (MQM) Legal Aid Committee.
His body was shifted to Jinnah Hospital and police have begun investigations into the incident. Body was being shifted to Sadat Colony/Incholi’s Imam Bargah Martyrs of Karbala/Khair ul Amal where his namaz-e-janaza (funeral prayer) will be held today.
Target killing has been on the rise in Karachi city and the recent implementation of the National Action Plan is aimed at eradicating all forms of terrorism from the country.
ASWJ/LeJ terrorists continue genocide against Shia Muslims alongside targeted assassinations of all Sunni opponents in Pakistan.
