It is sad to read about Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa’s Information Minister, Mian Iftikhar’s son, Mian Rashid who has been gunned down near Nowshera.
According to Express Tribune:
The incident occurred in Pabbi area near Nowshehra district where Mian Rashid left his home along with his friend Mian Amjad for an evening walk.
Unidentified persons opened fire on them and both were injured in the incident. They were taken to the hospital where Rashid succumbed to his injuries.
He was the only son of Mian Iftikhar Hussain.
Police have cordoned off the area and search operation is currently underway.
We at Let Us Build Pakistan would like to offer our condolences to Mian Iftikhar and his family over the tragic and targeted killing of his only son.
This should also answer critics of “hereditary politics” in Pakistan. What was Mian Rashid’s fault? He was a politician’s son. Had he survived, he would have become a leader himself. In Pakistan, not just a politician is made a victim, but his or her entire family is targeted.
May Allah grant Mian Rashid’s soul peace and his family the strength to bear the loss.
