Rashid Rahman Khan

One more great soul (muslim) departs under (unwritten) blasphemy laws- even if you defend a client accused of blasphemy you deserve to die.

Repeating after Omar, things will be worse before they become better. We say this because we have hope for South Asia when it may be that most people have already abandoned hope (we cannot say that they are wrong to do so).
Human Rights Advocate Rashid Rehman Khan was gunned down by unidentified attackers in Multan, DawnNews reported late on Wednesday night.

Initial reports suggest that Khan’s car was targeted by the gunmen near Kachehri Chowk. The attack also left two other people injured.

Advocate Rashid Rehman Khan was a coordinator for the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP). The senior lawyer was representing a blasphemy accused and had complained that he had been receiving threats on his life.

The HRCP had voiced serious concern over the threats extended to Khan.
