Sabeen Mahmud with her mother
Sabeen Mahmud, a prominent Pakistani social and human rights activist, was shot dead, shortly after hosting an event on Balochistan’s "disappeared people", in Karachi. On friday April 25, 2015.
Human Rights Commission of Pakistan's Chairperson Zohra Yusuf said,
Sabeen had reportedly told her colleagues that she was being scrutinized by the Pakistani intelligence agency, The New York Times reported.
Sabeen was known for organizing the first hackathon in Pakistan, in 2013,
Sabeen had famously told a magazine in an interview that "Fear is just a line in your head. You can choose what side of that line you want to be on".
She had been receiving indirect threats.
Now after her death it is likely that Pakistani authorities will soon arrest some so called terrorists who will confess killing her because of religious motives. The question is who is supporting terrorists in Pakistan?
