Justice for Noor Mukadam
Justice for Noor Mukadam
We the friends, family of Noor Mukaddam and concerned citizens of Pakistan, demand justice for the brutal murder of our Noor at the hands of Zahir Jaffer son of business tycoon Zakir Jaffer of Ahmed Jaffer and Company and therapist Asmat Adamjee.
Noor Mukadam, the daughter of Shaukat Mukaddam, ex Ambasssador to South Korea, was murdered at Zahir Jaffer’s residence in Islamabad’s upscale Sector F-7/4 on Tuesday 20 July, 2021.
Noor and Zahir were childhood friends, and Zahir upon expressing his romantic interest and having been rejected by Noor, exacted his revenge. He called Noor on the pretext of speaking to her one last time before he moved to the US, and Noor ever trusting and kind, obliged to meet on the afternoon of Chaand Raat. At that point, Zahir took her in and held her hostage at gun point, and brutally murdered and decapitated her.
Reports indicate another person was also critically injured when trying to restrain Zahir Jaffer. The Police confirmed that Zahir Jaffer showed no remorse and was fully in his senses at the time.
Zahir Jaffer has a history of violent abuse, and as per reports he was deported from the UK for rape. Rather than keeping him away his family put him at the helm of his company business, the Ahmed Jaffer and Company, as its Chief Brand Strategist. He also was licensed as a therapist, by Therapyworks who didn’t vet him, and paved the way for him offering counselling sessions at school.
Zahir Jaffer’s family and his economic privilege hid the dangerous criminal it had been harboring. Zahir Jaffer was abusive towards Noor, towards women, and is an abusive and violent human being. He was able to operate freely because of his family’s wealth and influence. He committed this crime because he felt that he could evade the law.
Noor was an artist, she was pursuing a degree in International Relations. She had recently been commissioned her first paid mural, which she will never get the chance to finish. She was adored by her friends and family. She was a ray of light, and her loss has left the world a darker place. She strove for women’s right and championed them. She loved animals, and would took care of them. She was the kindest, and gentlest among us, and that was exploited by her murderer Zahir Jaffer.
We demand that the Supreme Court of Pakistan, International Human Rights Comission and Prime Minister Imran Khan bring justice for Noor Mukaddam.
* Put Zahir Jaffer and Family on the Exit Control List.
* Hold Zahir family accountable for knowing all facts and enabling Zahir Jaffer
* To provide swift justice to Noor Mukaddam and punish Zahir Jaffer, to make an example out of him
* To provide justice to Saima Raza and QuaratulAin Umar, and any victims of the rampant femicide in Pakistan
* We urge the US government to not harbour Zahir Jaffer and not let him set foot on US territory
For long the elite in Pakistan have abused their power to commit horrific crimes and escape punishment. We hope that Zahir Jaffer’s punishment at the hands of law has the potential to turn the tide of judicial evasion
and hold perpetrators of violence responsible. We demand justice. We demand it swiftly. We demand it for Noor. We demand it for all women.
We couldn’t save her while she lived, but your contribution will help make sure that we can at least take this to its rightful end. https://gofund.me/7e8a83ad
