Murder Outside Kinnaird College.

by Khanum

Today around 2:30 PM ,  my Professor receives  a text message ‘There has been a murder at ‘Kinnaird College’.  He read it aloud as we were sitting in the conference room attending our class for Information Managing subject.

30 minutes later after the class – I see the world in utter chaos. The one side road appeared to be fully jammed – no car could move even an inch. The girls whispered at the University gate  about the incident at the college next door in utter confusion and disbelief. So far the rumour was , A boy opened fire on a girl and then killed himself with the same weapon.

By this time – I was frantically looking for a way to go over the crime scene and see it for myself. There is really no shame in collecting information and taking shots of the scene for a Mass Media Student – that too for her blog.  I asked my friend Maria who goes with me to the same University and we usually take the same auto vehicle for home – to inquire about her sister Zoya that happens to study at the same  Kinnaird College.

My plan was to pick her up from there and also come closer to the actual incident. This could be something brave. But unfortunately we are forced to stay where we are by the non sense traffic jam.

‘Let’s walk on foot and pick her up” I suggested to my friend. But it was a bit far by walk and it didn’t tempt my friend. We decide to take our auto home.

3:30 PM. We are now even more depressed than ever. No auto was to be found or could be  fetched in any case – it was definite. From one end of the Giant Bridge to the other – we walked endlessly in hope of reaching home safe and sound. The traffic crowd was getting louder by now. I had heard 2 more rumors till now.  The person said, It was the girl who pulled the trigger  first and ended the guy’s life and then her own.  But according to the third report,  There was no girl involved.  The duel was simply  between two guys that too upon a Women College Bridge.

Quarter to 4, Thankfully –  I manage to stop an auto at last and beg him to transport us to our homes as soon as possible. My friend’s sister Zoya had no other choice but to wait behind the closed gate of her College and wait for her College Bus to pick her up till 5 PM.

In minutes , we were out of the chaotic world. Zoya texted her sister again , this time confirming the rumour.

“It was a guy who killed the girl and then committed suicide right at the spot.”, said witnesses.


Disbelief, panic and utter confusion is what everyone is facing at this moment. The story is straight and  I won’t say simple because it’s horrible.

According to Media reports : The victim (girl) was 18 years of age. She was killed outside the College on the College Bridge by a Young man who wished her hand for marriage. But upon constant denial by the girl as well as her family , the guy lost his temper and shot the 18 year old. Few seconds later , he pulled the trigger and kissed his life goodbye as well.

I have no personal comments to make ,  Except to mention the scene I witnessed on jailroad and upon the Bridge that connects with my University too.

While the world ran mad with the news of the murder , a young couple  stood calm and quite holding hands upon the bridge , talking , hugging , worst of all , viewing the traffic jam as if they were standing upon Eifel  Tower.

Few more paces away from that place , I witness another crime scene. 1 girl, hardly 20 , busy with 4 guys in a fully jammed car. You’re smart, do the math!

If they don’t put a ban upon this madness outside colleges, there would be a teenage murder each year , each month , or perhaps each day out of frustration by the same teenage Juliet in distress or depressed Romeo with a gun.

  10. you guys are wasting your time on it. Nothing is gona happen of this nation. These blogs and discussions are not gonna bring any change . If THE HOLY QURA’AN , QTV , Hadiths of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) , the mosques then i must say u are making it even worse by making loads of comments and wasting your time . Just go and do something which can bring change . Retarded .

    • Mr. Adnan. First I allowed u to comment. I should brought this into your knowledge that I can very well erase you and block you from commenting. But I didn’t do it because Its good to have an example of people like you around. Please do not create a mess. Nobody asked for your comments. Its pure journalism here. If you are against it. Please stop watching TV too and do not visit this site again. Many Thanks!

      P.S. You talk about Islamic values. Are these the values then ? This language and behavior ? Prophet Mhammad PBUH stood up even for the funeral procession of a jew. He was asked, why ? And His answer indeed should serve a reminder for you.HE said , Was he not a human ? Did he have no soul in his body ?!!!!

  11. *If they didnt follow teachings of THE HOLY QURA’AN , Hadiths of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) , QTV, Naats etc then how do you expect the people to follow your blogs or comments …?? Everything is cleared in The Glorius QURA’AN . but most people in Pakstan have forgotten the islamic vaules .. You retards waste more time on blogs and comments ..

  12. Any way………….its not a normal reaction actually it is above normal and we can not comment on it…….bcz it is height of doing some thing

  13. Pervisha, thanks for sharing the pictures. That is a horrible traffic jam! I’m glad you ladies reached home safely, alhumdulillah.

    Mr. Adnan, that was an unnecessarily harsh comment from you.

  14. This is absolutely sad and unacceptable…I mean value for human life? I could imagine the scene while reading the post……And you guys should be careful and on alert 🙂 tc 🙂

    • Dear Vel, Sadly, this is how it is. People are still talking about it in university and everywhere.

      Thanks my friend for concern for our safety : )…

  16. Oh my gosh, this is horrible……..condolences to the girl’s family 😦

  17. she was very gud yes she is crying .. she was not involved 😦

  18. she was very gud yes she is crying .. she was not involved

  19. that was the best conclusion done by anyone after describing whateer happened..!!

  20. people are being so hormonal……. it is good to fantasize love relationships and i even do them sometime..but we should understand that the reality is murky..we have our limits and we should not transgress the boundaries set by Almighty ALLAH TALLAH

  21. true to your ending lines. As a society we are failing badly. In 90s We went out with girls too, fell in love and some of us got married to the girls. but in our days it wasn’t like this. Liking someone didn’t mean taking them to parties and physical relations were rare. Majority of relations were completely innocent. But When I look at kids from these institutes now and their wild parties I wonder what have we done to our young generation. There is no check on Alcohol, drugs or checks by parents on their kids for staying out so late at nights. Mehndies ending up 3 or 4am in the morning, group studies and all other excuses….where are the Moral and Ethics we used to be proud of…. being liberal and being morally low are two different things that we need to educate our kids. going out with someone just for the heck of it is not being in love. and loving someone is not taking their life. definitions have gone wrong, values are disappearing – time to think and do something about it. educate our kids so they make the same mistakes.
