Mian Laiq Ahmad Sahib

Mian Laiq Ahmad Sahib, Faisalabad, Pakistan

Faisalabad; Pakistan: Mian Laiq Ahmad (54), a well known Ahmadi trader in Faisalabad, became a victim of target killing on May 28, 2009. He was returning located in home in ‘Peoples Colony’, when he saw a parked Toyota Corolla blocking the road outside his home. When Mr. Ahmad neared his home he slowed down and unknown persons jumped out of the Toyota and ran towards his car. It seems that at this point Mr. Ahmad tried to reverse his car but as he did, he was shot in the head. At that point the attackers got closer to Mr. Ahmad and fired repeatedly at him. He was hit in the stomach and arms. The assailants then fled the scene. Mr. Ahmad was immediately taken to the local hospital and later transferred to the Allied Hospital but was unable to recover. He passed away at 11.30 a.m. the following day. Mr. Ahmad is survived by his wife, two sons and three daughters.
