7 Mysterious Assassination Cases of Famous Pakistanis
Although many people in Pakistan strongly believes in conspiracy theories surrounding world events like 9/11, still there are people who simply get annoyed when someone points out that there is more to the story than meets the eye. Following are 7 mysterious assassination of Famous Pakistanis that are yet to conclude
Liaquat Ali Khan - 16 October 1951
Someone fired 2 shots, standing in front of your prime minister. A few seconds later 3rd shot was fired. Several "trained" security personnel's were also present on the scene & what they did? immediately killed the shooter!
Some newspapers has gone to greater lengths of stupidity by actually publishing a hoax story which claimed some "declassified US documents" accepts that USA was the killer. No one, however, link or produced any such "declassified US documents" so far.
Contradictory medical records as well as absence of two members of the Cabinet without any known reason are still unanswered!
Fatima Jinnah - 9 July, 1967
Nation's mother, Fatima Jinnah, the sister of Pakistan's founder, was not only curbed from expressing her views with freedom but actually got censored on Radio Pakistan.
As per the then government, she was died due to heart failure however several police witnesses & leaders like Nawabzada Nasrullah hinted that she was actually murdered.
As per her will, she wanted to buried alongside with her brother Muhammad Ali Jinnah. The sad reality was the fact that the administration was not allowing that until they feared the public pressure will be too much to handle.
Shahnawaz Bhutto - 21 November, 1958
Son of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto & Brother of Benazir Bhutto, Shahnawaz Bhutto was found dead in Nice, France. Although there is a detailed background of Shahnawaz Butto's death by veteran Pakistani diplomat, Jamsheed Kaikobad Ardeshir Marker, which claimed that he suicides over a dispute on money with with his elder brother Murtaza Butto However many people still believes that it was not the case.

Let me know when you figure it out :)
Hakim Muhammad Saeed - 17 October, 1998
One of Pakistan's most prominent medical researcher, scholar & philanthropist, Hakim Muhammad Saeed was murdered on 17 October, 1998. He also served as Governor of Sindh from 1993 until 1996.
Now for most of the people this comes as surprise because we all know that then Government of Nawaz Sharif put the blame of Hakim Saeed on MQM, a political party in Pakistan having strong hold in urban Sindh. However consider the following events & points and then re-think about it.
1. Nawaz Sharif, then Prime Minister publicly gave MQM, who was part of government, 3 days to hand them murderers and then dismissed the Sindh Government.
2. Police arrested 3 workers of MQM which were acquitted by Sindh High Court and then Supreme Court later due to no evidence.
3. Most of the officials who were part of investigation, accepted that the MQM was not involved in the murder including DG Intelligence Bureau,
4. Some key police officials, who were involved in the case, concluded that MQM worker Mohammed Amirullah was the murderer and then Anti-terrorism court "speedy justice" convicted him as guilty. There were reports of a coded-message sent to one of then MPA Of Karachi but no agency bother to investigate it.
5. Witnesses present at the time has entirely different story and they even claimed that the van were checked by the police before the murder on being suspicious.
At the end of the day, killers of this great asset of Pakistan are still out there and no one has been actually convicted yet.
