LUBP’s Statement on Khurram Zaki’s Martyrdom

Shaheed and murderrer

We offer our condolences to Pakistani nation on the martyrdom of LUBP blog’s editor and leading human rights activist Khurram Zaki. After Shaheed Irfan Khudi Ali of Quetta, Shaheed Khurram Zaki is the second LUBP editorial team member who has been target killed by Takfiri Deobandi militants.

For the last one year, Shaheed Khurram Zaki was a target of a systematic hate campaign organized by Deobandi fanatic, Shamsuddin Amjad of the Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan in collaboration with the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP aka ASWJ/LeJ).

In particular, hateful and violence inciting posters against Shaheed Khurram Zaki had been published recently by the Mashal Facebook page run by Shamsuddin Amjad, Asad Wasif and a few other pro-Taliban fanatics of Jamaat-e-Islami.

Shaheed Kurram Zaki was a bigger journalist and rights activist with more valuable credentials and contributions than those in mainstream media or NGOs who remain silent on or obfuscate systematic target killing of Shia Muslims, Sunni Sufis Muslims, Christians and other communities in Pakistan at the hands of Takfiri Deobandi militants.

Khurram Zaki took a principled and courageous stance against the notorious Lal Masjid Deobandi cleric, Abdul Aziz, when the latter refused to condemn the same Taliban/ASWJ terrorists who killed 150 school children in Peshawar. Zaki’s bold and unwavering stance against this cleric brought him to the attention of the Takfiri Deobandi nexus which is also responsible for 100% of suicide bombings in Pakistan.

In boldly highlighting and supporting the rights of Sunni Barelvis, Shias, Sufis, Ahmadis, Hindus and Christians, his contribution as citizen journalism was much bigger than all journalists combined in Pakistan. His death is the grim reminder that whoever raises voice against Taliban, ASWJ/LeJ and Jamaat-e-Islami Deobandi mafia in Pakistan will not be spared. And when they have to murder, they never fail.

In keeping with the legacy of Shaheed Khurram Zaki, LUBP will not bow down to Takfiri Deobandi terrorism. We will continue to work for greater Sunni-Shia unity and support all operations against the TTP, ASWJ/LeJ and other terrorists. We will continue to highlight and condemn Shia genocide and target killings of Sunni Sufis, Christians and other communities in Pakistan at the hands of Deobandi militants.

Khurram Zaki’s martyrdom is the result of a sustained campaign against not only LUBP but all those Pakistanis like Irfan Khudi Ali and Sabeen Mahmud who spoke the truth. We have no doubt that his target killing has been engineered by and is the result of a systematic hate campaign by Shamsuddin Amjad of Jamaat-e-Islami. We remind Shamsuddin Amjad that all lawful means will be used to ensure that he is held to account for this murder.

To honour and preserve the memory of our dearly departed colleague, LUBP is setting up the Shaheed Khurram Zaki Trust to ensure the well being of family members and children of deceased activists killed by Takfiri Deobandi terrorists regardless of their sect or faith background.

  • i request to becoming our number one spy agency can you arrest the killers as early as possible as we expect you are number one in the world .

    we will appreciate it

  • Kurram Zaki was known to me only through facebook. His courrage, fearlessness with reason in his argument always made me admire this gentleman. The news of his killing was shocking but it proved that he was a true believer of Allah as those who could not be silenced with fear, so they finally silenced him by bullets.

    Glad tidings to my brother, finally you will be meeting your beloved Allah with the belief that you lived a life of truth and was only afraid of Him and no other power.

    Peace and mercy on your soul and you be amongst those who are given abundance of blessings. Indeed those who killed you or took part in your murder will remain in hell in this world and in the hereafter.

  • S.A. May Allah Bless All his near and dear ones with Sabr at this difficult time. Ameen. It takes a Brave person or a Brave Institution to speak out against the zalimeen. May Allah send his azab on them all,whoever they are. Ameen. Please keep up the Good and Brave work you are doing. To stand up to tyrants is Sunnah of the Prophets.. JazakAllah Khair.
    May Allah Protect you All…Ameen

  • Let Us Build Pakistan (LUBP) has fought valiantly to uphold Truth in a land of manufactured reality. Pakistan, and especially Pakistan’s military establishment, have long been hostile to honest reporting and journalism which do not serve the government’s interests. Khurram Zaki has faced daily threats, coming from all sides and he has managed to keep LUBP focused upon a better future for his troubled Nation. He was very generous to me personally, running many of my articles on LUBP.

    Above all, he was a great patriot, whose tireless dedication shall be sorely missed.
