Man shot dead over Rs20 in Lahore

April 12 , 2019

A man was killed over Rs20 in Lahore. 

Zulfiqar repaired punctured tyres at a shop in Lahore where he and a customer had a confrontation over Rs20 four days ago, according to his family and witnesses. They said he asked a customer for Rs70 but he refused and only gave Rs50.

When Zulfiqar asked the yet unidentified man for the remaining Rs20, he became enraged and beat him up. He left saying that he would “deal with him in four days”.

Four days later, Zulfiqar was gunned down. A friend who was with him at the time of the attack identified his assailant as the same man from the tyre repair shop.

The police have lodged a case and are looking for the man. Other witnesses have also provided descriptions of the attacker.

Zulfiqar, 30, got married last year and has a two-month-old son. His mother and wife have appealed to the authorities to take notice of the incident.

    A society is known as a place where people protect and support each other against any cruelty, injustice or any inhumanity to anyone without any discrimination. Allah help his family and authorites must punish culprit as soon as possible.

    We can’t say that state is accountable but there must be a mechanism. Customer was rather right before this action but later on it was exacerbated.

    people working to feed their families are not the ones who are poor, poor are those who deprive such people.
    the family of the victim must be compensated by the state and the criminal when caught.

    These cases are common due to non implementation of laws… A wise man said when only prayers are left for cruelty than this is a cruel society

    Lack of justice in the society has created chaos in the society. As quoted in holy Quran “he who killed one person, killed the whole humanity.”

    I am deeply grieved at such incidents. And request from government for immediate action because he is common Pakistani and request from government to take custody of his family. This is really a very sad news. May Allah bless him.

    When the rich and powerful go scot free, when the, so called, long arm of the law falls short of providing justice to the common man, when the aggressor is appeased by those entrusted with law enforcement, when the police themselves make a mockery of the law, this is precisely what happens!!!
