Mr. Muhammad Azam Tahir — Uch Sharif

Mr. Muhammad Azam Tahir was murdered because of his faith on September 26, 2009 in the presence of his wife and daughter in Uch Sharif Distt. Bahawalpur, Punjab, Pakistan. He was returning on his motorcycle from a family wedding at 8:30 p.m. when two unknown persons brandishing a firearm forced him to stop. The assailants pointed a gun at him. Mr. Tahir pleaded with them to take whatever they wanted and leave him and his family alone, but as he said this, one of them shot him in the temple. He died on the spot. The assailants took nothing else and fled the scene. Running time: 00:16:44
