Fahad Malik and family

Baroness Warsi has appealed to Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan to continue committed efforts to bring British National Fahad Malik’s killers to justice.

Fahad Malik, a British-Pakistani barrister was shot dead on Monday 15th August in Islamabad close to the Prime Minister’s residence in front of many witnesses, despite Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan’s ‘Safe Cities’ campaign launched in June this year.

Lady Warsi released the following statement;

I am deeply saddened by the senseless murder of British National Fahad Malik in Pakistan.

Fahad Malik was a well-known and respected member of the UK Pakistani community and was tragically assassinated in the vicinity of a Police Station in Islamabad on Monday 15th August after mediating a dispute between two parties.

This further murder of a British national is sadly indicative of the plague of killings and gang warfare which inflict casualties across Pakistan on a regular basis. This attack in the heart of the country’s capital, Islamabad, a city in which I have lived and I know well, is even more alarming.

I welcome the commitment that both Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan have given to this matter and urge them to continue to ensure that investigations are fully conducted to bring Fahad’s killers to justice.

Pakistan must show that the rule of law is not just written but is operational and is implemented for British Pakistani’s who regularly travel to Pakistan for both work and pleasure. It is important that confidence in the police, army, security services and judiciary is maintained and the investigation, prosecution and conviction of Fahad Malik’s murderers will go some way to restoring that confidence.

My sincerest condolences and heartfelt sympathy is with Fahad Malik’s family especially his widow and two young children. They are in our thoughts and prayers.
