Fakhra Yunus laid to rest in Karachi

- March 25, 2012 - Updated 180 PKT - From Web Edition

KARACHI: Acid attack victim Fakhra Yunus was laid to rest after her funeral prayer was offered at the Edhi Foundation Sohrab Goth’s Centre.


Fahkra’s burial took place at a graveyard in the Defence area of Karachi.


Earlier on Sunday, the body of Fakhra Yunus was brought to Karachi amid demands of action against the perpetrators of the crime.


Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Co-ordination Committee members, lawmakers, the Italian ambassador and renowned social worker Abdul Satttar Edhi were among those present at the Karachi airport to receive the body.


The body was handed over to Tehmina Durrani, MQM's Nasreen jalil and Fakhra's sister.


Earlier, funeral prayer of acid attack victim Fakhra Younus was offered at the hospital ground in Rome and the body was sent to Pakistan.


In her last message before committing suicide, Fakhra had written that she was committing suicide over the silence of law on the atrocities and insensitivity of Pakistani rulers.


Fakhra committed suicide by jumping from the sixth floor of the flat. Her husband Bilal Khar, the son of former Punjab Chief Minister Ghulam Mustafa Khar, had burned her face with acid 12 years ago.


The MQM’s Rabittaa Committee has appealed to Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry to take notice of the incident and arrest Bilal Khar.
