  1. hi this is qassim the old best friend of khurram.i just got to knew it and i am feeling very sad for him.he was a great human being and such a kind person.i cant forget the moments we share in manchester 2005.staying at sunnys house.i hope british government will arrest the killers.may Allah peace him in rest.with prayers muhammad qassim

  2. Asalam-o-Alikum. Though being a muslim we believe that one has to die one day but death like Khuram Ashraf not only gives sadness but also arises few questions. One question is from us is that ” This is the money for which we are striving for, leaving deads behind” 2nd is to the Governments of the world and specailly to the developed countries that even if they are unable to protect the rights and lives of the people then why to make noise over 3rd world countries. Some one has lost his son , brother or friend, do we think we or any other thing can replace him and specially for his family? They lost their son and he will never come back. I never met with him but being a human being i m sad as its a murder of humanity as well. Lets bring our hands together no matter from where we are , no matter from which ethnicity we belong, no matter wat we have or not to protect humanity. This is the need of the hour that we the young people from all the nations stood up and lead this world to a peaceful and nice place. Just make a plat form and lets be together there. There is always a begining and why not today and why not right know. Please step forward and lets we the young people find out the solutions for every one’s problem. May Allah give him place in heaven and enough wisdom to us to think about others more than ourselves. I am being a first drop has taken a step and now its your turn.

  3. AOA.
    This is amna butt,one of very close friends of Khurram. He was such an adorable person that can not be described in words. we did masters in english together from GIFT univ,GUJ.i never saw him getting angry with anyone througout our session in uni. He always respected all his friends,teachers n everyone.we were a group of six girls n two boys ,n had such a unity that everbody would adore. we lost him 😦 its a very big shock for all the friends.
    He has become a beautiful memoy of our life.May Allah Bless him,May his soul rest in peace.Amen.
    Guys ! we are only his friends and grieve for him so much,just think of his mother ,whose eyes were waiting that one day his son would come and she will hug him ,kiss him and ask him not to go far now ..but ahh destiny !! just see friends when he comes home,he doesnt actually come:'(he goes even more far from her..The mother who anxiously wanted to embrace his son ,couldnt even touch him ,because he was in a coffin:(
    I can never forget the moment when his mother embraced us n wailed bcoz we were khurram’s friends …
    All the ppl in other countries say that life is not safe in Pakistan ..and there is alot of terrorism here. i would like to ask them that where was the security of khurram’s life,when he was in UK??? He was shot at the back,how come his life couldnt be saved,???
    Please try to stop these crimes. Lets try to make the world Peaceful.
    PLZ friend pray for him ,May His Soul Rest In Peace.

  4. Cowards, how can a muslim kill another muslim.

    Shame on the killers!

    Inna lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Rajioun. My thoughts are with Khurram Ashraf’s family and pay my deepest condolences.

    I had a cousn called Khurram as well who got killed in Denmark. These people need to re-think their actions.
