The religious scholar was injured in the Orangi City gun attack | Instant News

A cleric was injured in a gun attack in Orangi City on Wednesday. Mufti scholar Saleemullah Khan, 40, son of Pasand Khan, head of the Salim Academy at the MPR Colony, was shot and wounded on Jalan Manghopir.

Police said two suspects on motorbikes opened fire at the white Toyota Corolla in which Khan, his wife, children and other relatives were traveling. The scholar was injured and was immediately taken to a private hospital in North Nazimabad. Fortunately, his family members escaped unscathed.

DIG West Zone Asim Qaimkhani told media that Mufti Saleemullah was shot twice, in the stomach and back. According to a witness, the car stopped after the shooting incident. “I broke the car window, got the injured person out of the car and told him that he had suffered a gunshot wound,” said the witness.

Mufti Saleemullah’s son told media that after the shooting, it was his own father who drove the car to the hospital. The witness further said that the suspect who was wearing a hat also shot at the dog when the dog started barking and chasing it.

Investigators have obtained CCTV footage in which the suspects riding a motorbike can be seen following the victim’s car and opening fire on the vehicle. Police said they recorded witness statements and also geo-fenced the area to track and arrest the perpetrators. No cases had been registered until this report was filed on Wednesday evening.

Jamiat Ulama-e-Islam-Fazal (JUI-F) said Mufti Saleemullah was affiliated with him. According to a press release issued by JUI-F Deputy Secretary for Information Sami Swati, the party delegation met with SSP West District Suhai Aziz, calling the attack a premeditated conspiracy.

They demanded the arrest of the suspects immediately. The delegation notified SSP West that JUI-F local leader Haji Akram Agha was also killed last week at the MPR Colony, but the killer has not been arrested.

“Attacking clerics in broad daylight is a question mark over the performance of law enforcement officials,” the statement read. “We will not tolerate more attacks on religious scholars and scholars.”

This is not the first incident to take place in the city as a number of incidents have occurred in Karachi in which criminals have targeted religious figures.

On November 1 last year, a prayer leader was shot and wounded in the Jamshed Quarters area. The injured person was identified as 46-year-old Mufti Abdullah, the prayer leader for the Subhania Mosque.

On October 10, in a terrible tragedy, the famous Sunni cleric Maulana Prof. Dr. Muhammad Adil Khan and his driver were shot dead at Shah Faisal Colony.

“Maulana Adil Khan, accompanied by a driver, lost his life after the attacker opened fire on his double cabin vehicle in Shah Faisal Colony, Karachi,” said DIG East Zone police chief Noman Siddiqui. The attackers targeted him near the Shama Shopping Center in Shah Faisal Colony.

Adil is seminary principal Jamia Farooqia. He was on his way to his residence on the Hub River Road from Darul Uloom, Korangi, when attackers targeted him.

Maulana Adil Khan and his driver were sitting in the SUV after Maulana’s son, Mufti Umair, had gone to buy candy from a shop at the Shama Shopping Center, when the tragic incident occurred.

Its driver, Maqsood Ahmed, 42, also lost his life in the attack. Maulana Adil’s son remained unharmed. The attackers fled from the scene.

The son of the late religious scholar, Maulana Saleemullah Khan, 62 years old Maulana Adil, is the president of Farooqia University, which is located in Colony Shah Faisal 4. Police and ambulance services reach the crime scene and take the victims to Liaquat National Hospital, where doctors announce they are dead upon arrival.

The religious scholar is injured in a gun attack in Karachi | Instant News


Two unidentified gunmen, on motorbikes, opened fire on a cleric’s car on Jalan Manghopir in the MPR Colony, injuring 40-year-old Mufti Saleemullah Khan at 9.09am Wednesday.

At the time of the incident, Khan’s wife and another woman with him in the car – a white Corolla with registration number BPK310 – both remained unharmed.

According to SSP Barat Suhai Aziz Khan, a resident of Nazimabad, was on his way to the madrasa where he worked in the MPR Koloni when two men, on a motorbike, approached his car and opened fire on him. The bullets that were fired hit the cleric’s arm and hit his stomach.

An eyewitness, a caretaker of a nearby factory, told The Express Tribune that he rushed to the vehicle as soon as it stopped after the attack, smashing car windows and removing the wounded priest. A driver and two others from the madrasa also quickly reached the place.

The driver took the cleric to a private hospital in North Nazimabad.

Meanwhile, the attackers fled. Initial investigations indicated that the shooting was either an attempted target assassination or that Khan was shot out of personal hostility because the attacker only fired once at the vehicle. In addition, it is suspected that the attackers conducted surveillance of Khan.

According to police, the attackers hid their faces, with one person wearing a helmet and the other wearing a hat and mask.

Police were unable to find bullets at the scene of the crime until the filing of this report on Wednesday evening.

In addition, the Counter-Terrorism Department has also conducted an investigation into the attack.

JI leaders met with clerics, MWM leaders to rally support for the March 28 rally | Instant News

As part of efforts to make the ‘Haq Do Karachi Ko’ rally a success, the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) delegation on Wednesday met with leaders from various religious groups and seminaries, and invited them to attend the rally on March 28.

The JI delegation was led by the party leader in Karachi, Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman. They met with the leaders of the Sindh Majlis Wahdat-e-Muslimeen (MWM), including Allama Baqir Abbas Zaidi, and invited them to attend the rally.

In a meeting held at Wahdat Building, MWM provincial office, the leaders of the two parties discussed the current political situation in the country, particularly in Karachi. The head of the JI city said there were many problems in the city but the ruling political parties in the province and the Center were not interested in solving them. “We came to you in the hope that you will be with us,” Naeem asked the MWM leaders.

Zaidi said the city appears defenseless at the moment and no one is in charge of the city. “We support JI in all matters and will attend the rally to solve the problems facing the townspeople,” he said.

The JI delegation also met separately with school principal Darul Uloom Naeemia and prominent cleric Mufti Muneeb Ur Rehman, son of school principal Jamia Binori Abdul Razzaq Sikandar, Dr Muhamamd Saeed and principal of Jamiat Sataria Hafiz Muhammad Salafi, and invited them to attend the JI rally for Karachi rights.

Announcing their support for the JI campaign for Karachi rights, the clerics warned that federal and provincial government policies for the country’s business capital would cause suffering for the masses and could lead to a national disaster.

They also called on citizens to join the JI campaign for Karachi rights, saying thirty million Karachi people could get their rights only through collective struggle. Mufti Muneeb said Karachi’s infrastructure had been destroyed due to miscalculations of the city’s population and a lack of resources. “Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has won a seat from Karachi but is not ready to give the city rights yet,” he said.

Meanwhile, the chairman of JI Karachi asked the residents of Karachi to attend a rally for their rights because the rulers were not sincere with them. “City roads are damaged with overflowing sewers and piles of trash seen everywhere. There are no adequate public transportation facilities for the community, “he said. “The Pakistan People’s Party and the Qaumi-Pakistan Muttahida Movement have destroyed Karachi while the PTI for the past 30 months has done nothing for the city,” he added.
