Twitter is remembering the late governor who was martyred for staying true to what he believed in. Shaheed Salmaan Taseer’s’ son Shahbaz Taseer honoured his late father on his 9th death anniversary with powerful words that were shared on Twitter a while ago. I lost my father 9 years ago. I mourn him everyday. If I was honest I miss him more than I mourn him but I draw strength from the fact that he didn’t die for me but for an idea that we were all equal. I lost my father but the weakest in my country got a hero. Love you Abba ❤️ — Shahbaz Taseer (@ShahbazTaseer) January 4, 2020 In another tweet shared this morning he wished his brother, Shehryar Taseer, and stated that the hardest battles are fought by the strongest soldiers. A very Happy Birthday to my brave younger brother @shehryar_taseer the hardest battles are fought by the strongest soldiers. Love you homie ❤️ — Shahbaz Taseer (@ShahbazTaseer) January 4, 2020 His son Shehryar Taseer also had a message for the media. In the days leading up to his death, many worried, many asked him to be “careful,” which in that context meant abandon the principled position. He didn’t care. He wasn’t reckless. He was completely aware of the risks; he was just fearless #Taseer https://t.co/wqxeo5RbuP — Shehryar Taseer (@shehryar_taseer) January 4, 2020 He said “In the days leading up to his death, many worried, many asked him to be “careful,” which in that context meant to abandon the principled position.

Civil society and non-governmental organisations will pay tribute to the late governor for his sacrifices for the cause of the oppressed segments of the society. Taseer was gunned down, by a member of his police escort, on January 4, 2011, at Kohsar Market, purportedly for his support to victims of the country’s blasphemy laws.
