Shoebullah Khan, Daniel Pearl and Us

Daniel Pearl, journalist with the Wall Street Journal, was slaughtered by Pakistani terrorists in Karachi, Pakistan, 2002.

Shoebullah Khan, editor of an influential Urdu language newspaper from Hyderabad, was shot dead and had his right palm severed by alleged goons of the Majlis E Ittehadul Muslimeen in Hyderabad, 1948.

Headquartered in Hyderabad, 'MIM' continues to function in its original name, as a critical coalition ally and consistently successful political party nursing national ambitions.

Shoebullah Khan had been 28 when he was murdered. Daniel Pearl 38.

Shoebullah Khan's second daughter was born a fortnight after his assassination.

Daniel Pearl's son was born three months after his murder.

Google "Shoebullah Khan" and you get less than twenty results. Google "Daniel Pearl" and you get close to a million.
