Launched by her friends
A GoFundMe campaign has raised an incredible $36,354 out of a goal of $120,000 to fight Noor Mukadam’s murder case in court.
“Zahir Jaffar comes from an extremely well-connected and wealthy family,” says the plea. “He and his parents have already secured legal representation from the best lawyers in the city, and they have the resources to fight this battle endlessly. We, as friends of Noor, are launching this campaign so that as her family grieves their beautiful daughter, they do not have to carry the additional burden of worrying about how they will afford the legal representation they need for bringing Noor’s killer to justice.”
The 27-year-old was slaughtered at a house in F-7/4 on July 20. The police arrested a man, identified as Zahir Jaffer, from the crime scene. The crime has since gained national attention as the latest example of horrifying violence against women in Pakistan.
The campaign was started on Wednesday by Tariq Ghaffar. As court cases are lengthy the total costs have been calculated to account for multiple stages of litigation.
“All proceeds raised through this platform will be used to directly fight Noor’s case.”
Meanwhile, Zahir Jaffer’s parents published a notice in DAWN newspaper to condole with Noor Mukadam’s parents. It said that they were devastated and grief stricken by the brutal murder and condemned it.
Indeed, many contingencies may arise in the future. This fund will provide invaluable support to that end. As we did not choose the initial amount, we feel the current amount is very generous, and sufficient. Thus, we have asked that the fund be discontinued at this point.
