When Sarfraz Shah was shot by a group of trigger-happy Rangers in a Karachi park in June 2011, he sparked a media fever.
A gruesomely detailed YouTube video had resulted in the Pakistani public connecting with Shah. He was young, unarmed and pleading for his life and yet – they killed him. Justice was demanded and in this case it was delivered.
After a few denials and accusations, the Rangers were arrested and the man who pulled the trigger was awarded the death sentence.
Quote: “Mujhay hospital tau puhancha day.” (At least take me to the hospital.)
