The first death anniversary of Mashal Khan – a 23-year-old journalism student at Abdul Wali Khan University in Mardan who was lynched to death within the University premises a year ago by an angry mob over blasphemy allegations – is being observed on Friday (April 13).

The brutal killing of Mashal Khan shocked the entire nation which not only raised voice against prevailing extremism across the Country but also demanded a severe punishment for the culprits.

Meanwhile, a ‘March for Mashal’ is being organized at Charing Cross in Lahore in memory of Mashal Khan and in support of freedom for education and an end to extremism on campuses.
