KARACHI: January 10 marked one of the deadliest days in the history of Balochistan as 100 people were killed in three blasts.

Among the dead was Irfan Khudi Ali a peace activist.

Social media users, after hearing the news of his death, paid tribute to his work, activism and resolved to take his mission of religious tolerance forward.

Below are few of the updates on twitter and facebook:

Raza Rumi ‏ Rest in peace my friend @khudiali -> Sorry that we could not save a bright mind, a brave soul like you. We are killing ourselves. #Pakistan

Samar Minallah Khan SHOCKED #Khudiali you were fearless. U spoke what needed to be said. This country needed U. What a loss! #Hazara #Quetta#Bombing

The Second Floor: Last year, PeaceNiche curated the Social Media Mela held in July 2012. One of the sessions was "Connecting with the World In Their Own Voice: Bridging the Mainstream Media Gap". Irfan Khudi Ali joined us as a panellist to discuss the power and potential of social media to combat human rights abuse and persecution. He was brave, outspoken, and fearless. We have just learned that Irfan has been killed in the Quetta bomb blasts. RIP, dear Irfan. It was an honour to have met you.

This is called learning the hard way... Obama is on his knees after a nerve-wracking war. Why do some people in pakistan think they can defeat them. There is only one victor and everyone knows who they are...
