KARACHI: 

The murder of 20-year-old Shahzeb Khan has ignited a movement that left the social media on Sunday evening and entered the real world.

Hundreds of Shahzeb’s friends, supporters and sympathisers gathered outside Karachi Press Club, carrying banners from which his face smiled down upon everyone.

The ‘Justice for Shahzeb Movement’ had gained significant presence online, and Sunday’s turnout showed that his supporters will not rest until justice is served. The protesters demanded the chief justice of Pakistan take suo motu action of the killing and arrest the culprits.

Shahzeb was killed allegedly by Shahrukh Jatoi near Mubarak Masjid in DHA on Tuesday night. The killing resulted from a small argument he had with Nawab Siraj Talpur, when the latter’s servant verbally harassed his sister. Talpur and his friend, Jatoi, allegedly followed Shahzeb and shot him.

DSP Aurangzeb

The killing mobilised hundreds of people against the unquestioned authority that people with political connections enjoy in the country. At Sunday’s protest, shouts of “We want justice, justice for Shahzeb Khan”, “Shahrukh Jatoi ko phansi doh,” [Shahrukh Jatoi should be hanged] reverberated through the streets of Saddar.

A grim-faced cousin of Shahzeb, Daniyal said that the purpose of this movement was for every youngster killed in an unjust manner. With black bands tied around their arms, Shahzeb’s friends said that he was popular for his good nature. Next to him, another friend Asad, carried Shahzeb’s picture that said ‘I did not die. I just departed to stop the killings of other Shahzebs’. Asad said that despite the fact that the victim’s father was a police officer, he was against guns and never used them.

Asad Butt, a Human Rights Commission of Pakistan representative, said that all the NGOs should unite against the rich who use their power to get away with crimes. Several politicians, including Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s Raza Haroon, Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz’s Nehal Hashmi and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf’s Dr Arif Alvi also came, but the protesters insisted on keeping the demonstration free from any political association.

After a peaceful march from the press club to Zainab Market, the protesters then relocated to Sea View from where they walked to Shahzeb’s house in Country Club Apartments. Shahzeb’s mother sat in front of the building’s main gate, where the argument had taken place. With her head hung low, she recited prayers for her son’s soul. Afreen Shiraz, who turned up with her husband after seeing Shahzeb’s memorial page, said that every parent should become a part of the movement. “I have two teenaged daughters and I get worried about them as they have kids in their schools with armed guards. The wrong usage of guns needs to be stopped.”

DSP Aurangzeb, Shahzeb’s father, said that he would not give up. “Those influential people can use their power and money to stop the police from arresting the criminals but we will not give up. I will knock on every door to get justice for my son.”

    How selected Urban youth is busy in singular case sensationalized by some media outlets. Did they REALLY care about Shia genocide, Baloch massacre, extremist attacks and atrocities of violent groups in Karachi. How many protests have they done? Thousands of innocent poor people died in 2012 in Karachi, why not we demand justice for every innocent people and accountability for every criminal group. This is more a show off or a lip service than a real service for nation.

    Let’s not make him a hero like Sarfraz Shah (Rangers Incident) or Faizan Haider and Faheem Shamshad (Raymond Davis Incident).
    1. You don’t leave your home 4:00 in the morning for a cup of tea with your friends, after a fight, especially in a city like Karachi.
    2. Many 18 year olds in Karachi have connections with a political party which has easy access to weapons.
    3. We don’t know what exactly transpired. It takes two to make a fight.
    4. The father of the deceased is a old police veteran having rising from the lower ranks. It doesn’t need rocket science to figure out the source of his income to support his lavish lifestyle. He has kept his eyes closed for the crimes going on in the city. And eventually, he himself fell in the same pit, which he had been guarding for others, if he had himself not dug it up.

    DSP Aurangzeb, Shahzeb’s father, said: “Those influential people can use their power and money to stop the police from arresting the criminals”

    This is precisely what you have been doing your entire career, i.e., helping the influential people when it was for the kids of the less fortunate commoners.

    “I will knock on every door to get justice for my son.”

    Now you feel, how the weaker elements of the society felt. You had the duty to protect the lives of the common people. Have you ever shown similar enthusiasm to pursue justice for the victims gunned down on a daily basis. As a police officer, you failed them. Even now you are more interested in pursuing only one murder case, ignoring more than a thousand incidents this year.

There is in need of such capable government that smoothen the justice system and get rid of every kind of weaponism and terrorism. At the same time the police system is also in need of reforms and after after that we can get rid of all these Killings of our beloved like Shahzeb.

Its Shahzeb’s friends and families effort and their thirst for his justice that the media and other people got to know about him.

    The whole point is to bring this incident to people’s attention and stop such killings especially when we know where its being originated from.

While on the other hand not all police officers are corrupt, n many youngsters go to hang out in night and shahzeb went after valima so its understood.

You should’ve gone out and made some noise if you have a problem with Shahzaib’s friends creating commotion. Secondly, it’s not about Shahzaib Khan. It’s about law being equal for everyone. Influentials know that they can act in whatever way they wish just because they can wield influence and get out of tricky situations easily. It’s about bringing them to justice, Shahzaib is just a means to that end. So stop your BS

    @ Liberal_Pak i am a shia my self and trust me i know the pain of loosing some one close to you…some one from my family was a victim of target killing just a few months back in karachi. so i assure u i know when i say i feel the pain. but this is a good thing! whether the kid steps out at 1 or 4 or 5 or 6 the point of living in a democracy is tht every man has a right to come back home to his parents every women has a right to nto be harassed on the street and every father has a right to get justice for his child.

    There are many problems in pakistan undoubtably, pakistan as a whole is bleeding and i assure you everyone of you who commented on this article if it was a demonstration against shia killings there would have been dime a dozen ppl who would have bashed it here saying oh all of pakistan is bleeding everyones dying why should shias be treated differently and trust me i have seen people right such things because we as a nation have become extremely bitter.

    Lets not be bitter, no matter what the cause was, that kid did not deserve dying for standing up to defend his sister, infact that kid did not deserve dying even if he was just walking on a street. We must heal Pakistan one wound at a time. Please show respect and say prayers for this boys soul and also that these scoundrals get what they deserve.

What about the mentally challenged man that was burnt at the stake? People were out in droves but nothing came of it. I think those issues were a lot more pressing than the one at hand. Don’t get me wrong, I totally condemn the act and hope the murderers are brought to justice but please wake up and take a look around you. We Pakistanis are only pushed into action when its convenient for us and the sad part is that we never finish the job. Were never going to rid our country of the violence and corruption through these marches which are meaningless in the long run. The government doesn’t give two hoots about our little banners that are being plastered all over TV. The powers that be will eventually pass some minor resolution to shut everyone up and we are going to be back to square one. If you really want to make a difference, get out and start a Pakistani equivalent of the Arab Spring.

    Yes, others have been killed, but Express Tribune and other newspapers report on all those cases as well; so I fail to understand why people are getting upset that this is being reported.
    Furthermore, it continues to make news because friends of the deceased are raising their voice visibly. Other protests or walks to Press Club etc are also reported on.
    Friends of the deceased are protesting becuase they feel strongly; that also happens in other cases and that is reported on.
    I dont think people should be upset because of this. I continue to fail to understand the psyche of the Pakistani people.
    If you believe that your cause is not being taken up, organize a peaceful protest like these people have and make your voice heard. I am also impressed that they turned away political involvement.
    Perhaps the rest of Pakistan should become a bit more mature in how they react.

    Dear Readers

    It is unfortunate that a young man was lost to the whims of two feudal kids. It is also true that youth have agitated and the Supreme Court has taken a suo motto notice of this killing. It is also true that there is media hype behind this movement. Still a murder is a murder and the killer must be arrested, tried and punished per the law of land.

    My only submission is that the people of Pakistan that included me till I left Pakistan, have not tasted the real taste of democracy – right and duties of everyone well defined regardless of the social status of the person. There may be more than one one significant factors why we are not able to get rid of sham democracy and usher in an era of real democracy e.g., prolonged martial laws/army rules etc. One big factor is feudalism. A feudal mindset considers others beneath itself and has no regard for life and honor of those who are not in the same feudal class. Tell me the name of one country in the world where feudalism and genuine democracy co-exit. You wont find any such country. This movement should be converted into a mass movement to eradicate feudalism from the country so no other Shahzeb is killed. Merely arresting the killers and sentencing them to death will not harm feudal system, it is capable of producing many more Jatois and more Talpurs. Yes I want the killers arrested and tried in the court of law and given the punishment that is due to them BUT at the same time we as a nation have to come up and move to finsih off feudalism from Pakistan.

    Does not matter who DSP Aurenzeb is and how and why he amassed so much wealth! HE lost a son , who according to the “National Media” was trying to save the honour of his sister. That is what we know. Or maybe you have all the intricate details and would kindly care sharing it with the rest of us ordinary mortals..
    Maybe the media is lying and DSP Aurezeb bought them off to make his son look innocent. Maybe its another conspiracy theory with mega rich people and mosad, cia, and raw behind it!
    Mr. Umair, i am a very ordinary person living a very ordinary life .. What motive would i possibly have in favouring shazeb? Did i want to impress DSP Aurenzeb so he could share some of his wealth with me..is that what you are implying??
    What i was humbly stating, was the symbolic and now mainstream cruelty being perpetrated everyday across Pakistan. I said that if it was a shazeb to take a stand against this cruelty, then let it be.
    Now let me elaborate my feelings on shazeb going out for tea at 4 a.m.. If he went to avenge his sister, who according to the media, was harrased by those goons, he would be a hero in my eyes even if he gunned them down!
    We the ordinary mortals get our info from the media and are unfortunately not privy to intricate details about Shazeb’s family and their activities, as you would have..
    As for his mother, i wish i was there and could have saved shazeb. I wish i could have shot those goons and saved his mother from the terrible ordeal and agony she is going through! He was the only son, as far as i know..
    People are supporting Shazeb for the atrocity and the crime that now symbolize this country. He is a catalyst for change.. It is not supporting an individual or his wealthy father, but to save 100s or 1000s of similar sons who would keep on getting killed if this society does not change its barbaric ways!
    No matter what shazeb did or how big a phaddy baaz he was. IF he died saving his sister’s honour then i would support him a million times!

    And who told you shahzeb was avenging his sisters honour? Now if his sister had a valima how come she came back to shahzebs place? Now dont tell me he had 4 sisters? And the only point which I am making here is that shahzeb went out at 4am to teach these guys a lesson thinking that being DSP’s son he could do anything but he later found out who these people were. so life has come full circle for dsp aurangzeb. Just ask people in the darakshan arean who DSP aurangzeb is and you will come to know.

What i think so that if the police wont be able to catch the culprits then we all should request the Pakistan army and its intelligence Agencies to take action against the culprits ! Our nation is corrupt , the people are corrupt and the goverment is corrupt .. Atleast our Army has its power to deal with waderas , Ministers and MNA or MPA’s

    Why are thousands of people supporting Shahzeb’s Cause?? Why has the chief justice taken suo moto action in this case? Have you seen the facebook page supporting Shahzeb?? I guess all these people and the chief justice are his publicity managers then!

    Why in God’s name would i be doing PR for a guy i never knew before the news of his murder broke??

    Do you seriously think that the popular support for him is because of DSP Aurenzeb and Nabeel Gabol?? Do they have such vast resources to sway the opinion of thousands of people in their favor?

    The whole country is out for jatoi’s and talpur’s blood and you are stuck on Dsp Aurenzeb and Nabeel Gabol!

    Don’t you see the real reason behind such wide spread support? The first and foremost is terrible and horrendous cruelty being perpetrated and practiced by the powerful against the weak! Do you think it is about one guy?? No, its not!

    The case of Shahzeb is a clarion call against injustice! It is a wake up call for this unfortunate and drowning society,, to take heed of the warning signs, to hear the growing thunder of impending doom and utter chaos about to be visited on us…..

    Shahzeb, no matter what he did at 4 A.M…… has given us a warning that we better snap out of our collective slumber and join hands to stop the bloodshed and mayhem, before its too late!!

    It’s that simple, my dear brother..
    Hope you understand.

    @liberal_pak:
    Have you heard of the butterfly effect?
    It’s true that the pakistani youth rarely stands up for a cause…because at the back of our mind, we feel it is useless, that no change will take place no many how many times or how loudly we protest. However, if this movement brings about a change, I believe…I have faith, that the youth of pakistan will become more active towards bettering the nation.

    On one side the son of a retired DSP and close relative of a highly official in ppp govt Nabil Gabol and the other side is a son of a sindhi waderra and landlord of high ranks there must be a tug of war between the two giants indeed.one must be arrogant and the other be offensive the bravery and stupidity brought the disaster for the both families.May Allah guide us the islamic brotherhood and humanity to deal each other.Sometimes the victum is right but crushed and sometimes the oppressor is right but blamed for the consequences.Allah knows who is the best judge in all disputes.But in this world the rule is an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth what our religion and Al-mighty Allah proclaims in the Holy Quran.Anyhow all our sympathies and sorrows with the family of Shah Zeb.May Allah give them the justice from this worldly courts.

    Allah humein es mehengai aur berozgari ke masaael se bachae, I appeal for justice from CJ Pakistan for inflation and unemployment because the degrees we have got are useless until we are appointed on merit.

    @Maqbul Bhai Bihari:
    I agree with you maqbul bhai, they have deliberately made Shahzeb a hero and the protesters are not maintaining equality, it is clearly Tasub Parasti with Sindhis, this is the reason, Otherwise these people have nothing to do with Shahzeb because he was neither their relative nor brother.
