Malik Mabroor Ahmad, Nawab Shah, Sindh
Martyred on July 11, 2011

On 11 July 2011, a well-known and respected Ahmadi lawyer, Mr Malik Mabroor Ahmad (50), was martyred in Nawab Shah, Sindh.

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:

“Hatred against the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat in Pakistan continues to spread and leads to such tragic incidents. Hatred and persecution of any organisation or group must be condemned by all those who believe in tolerance and love for humanity. Such attacks serve only to destabilise society and to spread discord.”

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.

Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V (atba) mentioned in his Friday sermon on 15th July 2011,

Malik Mabroor shaheed was martyred in his chambers in Nawabshah Pakistan on 11 July. The assailant fired at him at close range and then fled. His brother was nearby; he gave chase and was also shot at but luckily escaped. Mabroor saheed was a lawyer and attempts had been made on his life before. He had a few one-sided enmities where people bore grudges against him for representing murder victims. In addition there was enmity borne out of his affiliation with the Jama’at which was dominant. Currently he was serving as the sadr of Nawabshah.”
