Suleman Qamar, a tragically ill-fated tourist, was burned alive in Swat, Pakistan. Born on November 29, 1987, in a modest home on Bilal Street, Pakpura, Sialkot, Suleman’s early life was marked by hardship and resilience.

Suleman hailed from the Arain community. His father worked at a petrol pump and owned a Sohrab bicycle. The family’s struggles intensified when his father passed away while Suleman was still in sixth grade. Despite these challenges, Suleman completed his middle school education at Munimuddin Model School, Pakpura, Sialkot. He then enrolled at Harvard Grammar School, Kutchery Road, Sialkot, where he completed his matriculation and pursued intermediate studies.

As the eldest son, Suleman assumed the responsibility of supporting his family after his father’s demise. He ventured to Malaysia in search of better opportunities. Through determination and hard work, Suleman not only established a successful business but also uplifted his family’s standard of living. He maintained regular visits to Pakistan, often reuniting with friends and family.

Suleman had a deep appreciation for poetry, particularly the works of Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Allama Iqbal, and Mir Taqi Mir. He was known for his vibrant personality and forward-thinking plans. Contrary to recent allegations about his substance abuse and domestic disputes, Suleman’s challenges began only about a year and a half ago due to family property disputes, leading to depression and isolation.

Suleman was a devout Muslim who often participated in congregational prayers with friends. Despite his struggles, he never engaged in or tolerated discussions against religious principles. He admired Maulana Rumi and frequently listened to lectures by Javed Ghamidi. Suleman was also known for his generosity, often helping patients unable to pay their hospital bills.

The recent events in Swat, where Suleman was accused of blasphemy and brutally killed, have raised serious concerns. It is imperative to remember that no concrete evidence was established against him. Law enforcement had already arrested Suleman, and an FIR was filed. Proper investigation would have revealed the truth, highlighting the premature and unjust actions taken by the mob.

This tragedy underscores the urgent need for thorough and unbiased investigations. It is crucial that the authorities provide security to Suleman’s family and bring the perpetrators to justice. The brutality inflicted upon Suleman contradicts the fundamental teachings of Islam, which prohibit such inhumane acts even in times of war.

Advocate Jawad Mir from Sialkot calls upon the authorities to ensure justice for Suleman Qamar and protection for his family. This incident serves as a stark reminder of the dangers of mob justice and the importance of upholding the rule of law.
