Image of Kaiman and Manisha at the end of this article is a gruesome image taken after his death which the family have asked us to share. Please avoid this if it may affect you adversely.
A man, described as sincere and kind-hearted, was killed when he asked his friends to repay him money he lent them.
Kaiman Bashir (26 yrs) died when his friends Mozam and Akmal refused to repay a 300,000 Pak-rupee loan (£1764), given to them over a two month period. Simon’s generous loan was inherited from his share of his father’s land earlier this year worth 1,600,000 Pak-rupees (£9400).
Manisha spoke with Mehwish Bhatti, she said:
“I have been heartbroken since the murder of Kaiman.
“Hi cruel death at such a young age has taken his life and ruined mine – we had so many hopes for a good future after his inheritance and finding a good job, but now there is nothing left.
“I know God will not leave me this broken but for now I do feel quite hopeless.
“The man who killed Kaiman should be brought to justice he is a danger to society but our laws protect criminals with such evil in their hearts.
“I don’t know what my future holds but it is now in God’s hands.”
Juliet Chowdhry, said:
“This was a brutal attack on an innocent man and the impact will be one that will affect Manisha for a long time.
“Manisha had an arranged marriage and was dedicated and faithful to her husband but will now find it hard to remarry.
“The murderer of Kaimon shows no remorse, moreover his brazen attack shows how little he fears the law and we are expecting attempts to bribe the police and courts as Mozam comes from a wealthy family.
“Already Manisha and her family are facing threats from relatives of Mozam who are seeking the dropping of all charges by them paying a bribe under Pakistan’s Qisas and Diyat laws.
“Enshrined escape from brutal crimes under these enshrined Sharia diktats have destroyed the justice system of Pakistan and reciprocally created a chaotic and anarchic social climate.”
Speaking to Mehwish Bhatti, Kaiman’s widow, Manisha, has requested help to bring forward a prosecution and requested BACA’s help to hire a lawyer. The cost to a lawyer to fight the case is set at £833 via advocate Rana Ahmed Raheel.
