A Muttahida Qaumi Movement worker was shot dead during aerial firing following a raid conducted by the Rangers’ at the party’s headquarters in Karachi Wednesday morning.
Syed Waqas Ali Shah, who was a member of the MQM Central Information Committee, was photographed moments before his death, protesting outside Nine Zero.
Shah was set to get engaged on Saturday, followed by a wedding after six months.
“He died protecting our women. I was with him,” said Shah’s closest friend, Ahsan Khan, who is also a member of the party.
“Don’t misbehave with the women,” were said to be the 25-year-old Shah’s last words to Rangers personnel, who according to eye-witnesses accounts were shoving and pushing women protesting outside the MQM headquarters.
Both Shah and Khan were quite popular for hosting programmes, rallies, protests and gatherings for the party. They were also known for delivering fierce and emotional speeches.
