Sabeen’s activism was well in evidence on the day she was killed as she organised and hosted a discussion titled “Unsilencing Balochistan”.


Her alleged crime was that she encouraged people towards human interaction, dialogue and debate versus the violent alternative, and additionally, promoted secular, progressive and rational thoughts.


This was expressed by the Women’s Action Forum (WAF) in a statement on Sunday.


The group expressed its deep and heartfelt grief at the target killing of peace and rights activist Sabeen Mahmud in Karachi on Friday night.
