Iqbal Khan rules out reconciliation with Mashal Khan’s killers

HARIPUR: Iqbal Khan, father of slain Mardan University student Mashal Khan, demanding justice in the murder case of his son said that a reconciliation by any individual or Jirga would not be allowed.

“We will not allow any individual or Jirga for reconciliation in Mashal Khan murder case. If someone wants it then he should watch the videos of the brutal killing of my son,” Iqbal said talking to media after the hearing of the murder case of Mashal Khan.

Replying to a question, he said there was no threat to Mashal Khan before his murder, but suddenly he was assassinated in daylight at the university.

Iqbal Khan said he wanted justice and was satisfied with the court’s proceedings.

He said we could not bring Mashal Khan back but this movement would help many others.

He said it was a test case for the government and judiciary and if they succeed it would portray a new image of the country in the world.

Iqbal Khan stated that neither he received any financial help nor was he or his family offered foreign nationality.
