Security guard Ahmad Nawaz shot Malik Imran Hanif, branch manager of National Bank of Pakistan, Qaidabad, Khushab, accusing him of blasphemy. Ahmad Nawaz attempted to kill Malik Imran after a heated argument. Malik Imran Hanif was taken to a local hospital in a critical condition, and is reportedly being shifted to Lahore due to the severity of his wounds. Sources claim that the security guard had been fired from his job a few months earlier, but was rehired, however his behavior with coworkers was not appropriate. Guard Ahmad Nawaz did not have a good working relationship with the manager, and got into a heated argument with him a few days earlier. Nawaz shot the manager as he reached the bank early morning on Wednesday. He claims to have done it over an alleged blasphemy committed by Imran Hanif, however coworkers and police sources suspect that the motive was the security guard’s personal grudge. Several videos surfaced the social media after the incident took place. The security guard can be seen rejoicing over his act as a cheering mob greets him with slogans of appreciation. In another video, the guard is seen at the roof of the local police station, waving to the crowd of supporters gathered on ground, clapping and chanting “behead those who insult the Prophet”. The victim’s family sources have claimed that the guard committed the heinous act to settle his personal vendetta and is now using the blasphemy card to justify it. Imran Hanif’s uncle shared a video message saying that his family is a lover of the Holy Prophet and are Muslims, the security guard has turned a personal issue into a blasphemy case to justify his action.
