The brother of Shakirullah, Shahzad Gulfaam said that he watched the terrible news of his only brother’s murder on TV channels and penned a note on a placard saying, “We appeal to Prime Minister Imran Khan to bring the dead body of my brother.”

In order to catch the media’s attention, Shahzad along with his wife and a friend stood in front of Karachi Press Club to convey his message to top officials. He also carried a passport-sized photograph of Shakirullah with the placard. Shakirullah’s murder took place a few days after the Pulwama attack.


Shahzad informed media that they are a Christian family. Shakirullah (once Shakir Jaleel) converted to Islam in his 20s but the family never argued about it. “We call the same God for help,” Shahzad added.

“In 2003, Shakir left home to attend a mela (festival) of Barapir in Shakargarh along with his friends. He never came back. His friends informed us that he was lost. We started a search in adjacent villages but our efforts bore no result, and with the passage of time all hope faded away. We had an idea that he had crossed the border,” Shahzad said.

The family of Shakir also shared facts about his mental health saying, “Despite compromised mental health, he was loving and was never involved in any sort of aggression. He was the youngest sibling among two brothers and three sisters.”

Shahzad a painter by profession lives in an area adjacent to Defence View of Karachi.

Robina, Shahzad’s wife expressed her views saying, “I saw him in pictures and only heard stories about him. Shahzad shifted to Karachi from Sialkot and we got married here in 2006. We strongly appeal to the government of Pakistan to bring his body back and to the Indian government to punish the culprits.”

Shahzad said: “He was tortured and then murdered… Indian extremists overreacted to the Pulwama [incident] and killed my innocent brother. We were unfortunate not to see him [return] alive but we want to perform his rituals in our homeland, in the country of Shakirullah.”
