Waheed Ahmed was just 17 when his father was killed in an incident of armed robbery of a van, now he wants to forgive his father’s killer but court doesn’t allows him to do so.
It was a van robbery and policed arrest three young teenagers including 17 year old Muhammad Iqbal who was punished with death penalty. Many questions are raised on the police investigation and court proceedings in which fake witnesses were presented.
Bilal was sentenced in 1997 and now he has spent 20 years in prison, his brother approached Waheed and asked for forgiveness. Waheed and his family decided to forgive him and approached supreme court but the court rejected it claiming the decision of ATC are final.
There is no forgiveness in Anti-Terrorism Court which deprives Waheed Ahmed from forgiving the killer. In other words the right which Islamic Law gives Waheed the opportunity to forgive is invalidated by the ATC.
Waheed believes “ God tells us to forgive our enemies, and that is what we’ve done.”
