Asma Rani, a third year MBBS student from Kohat was murdered in cold blood after she refused a marriage proposal.
According to The Express Tribune Mujahid Afridi and his accomplice, identified as Sadiqullah, shot Asma Rani dead on Saturday after she reportedly turned down a marriage proposal by the former. Rani, a student in Ayub Medical College, had named Afridi as her killer in a statement before her death.
The celebrities are now uniting to stand up for justice. Sanam Baloch, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Mahira Khan Armeena Khan amongst others took to Twitter to express their concern over this tragic matter.
“Mujahid Afridi is a cold blooded murderer who must be brought to justice asap. Arresting his brother for aiding his escape is fine but KP authorities must get him deported from Saudi Arabia and get him punished. May Allah’s curse be upon you Mujahid Afridi,” Hamza Ali Abbasi’s tweet read.

This girl was killed ystrday in #Kohat after she refused a marriage proposal as she said She’s busy in her studies. She clearly mentioned the name of the killer before leaving this cruel world. The killer belongs to a political family & a strong background. #JusticeForAsmaRani pic.twitter.com/Qpb1MLPhoH

No outrage, no hue and cry seems to make a difference to those in power. Only thing that seems to change are the names attached to the hashtags.

Okay, so now you’re killed because you say no to a marriage proposal? Wah banday teri Anah ko Salam. I’m actually at a loss of words. RIP Asma, hopefully you will not have died in vain. Maybe someone might take notice and change the system. #JusticeForAsmaRani I feel sick :(
