The tragic death of rapper Ghani Tiger’s father has shaken our souls in the month of Ramadan. The other day, a video recorded by Ghani Tiger went viral on social media, after he was seen crying and demanding justice for his deceased father.
Ramadan 2020 has already been tough in Pakistan due to the ongoing pandemic, with things already difficult and emotions running high, Ghani Tiger’s nervewracking video after his father’s death has raised many questions.
An incident occurred in Sialkot’s Pasroor area, where a man named Dawood Butt was shot dead in an armed brawl. Ghani Tiger, once his video went viral, appeared on celebrity Waqar Zaka’s show.
Waqar Zaka, just as many times before, wanted to go to the depths of the case. Thus, he took Ghani Tiger live on air on his show. Ghani informed about the following details of the incident.
Ghani Tiger’s point of view on Waqar’s show
Ghani Tiger said that initially, there was a fight between two young boys from their colony in Pasroor Sialkot. However, one of the two parties called upon their friends in the Anjuman Tehreek-i-Islam (ATI). After a while, during the time of Taraweeh, some boys of the ATI showed up in their area and started screaming and abusing people.
Consequently, Ghani Tiger’s elder uncle (Tayya), being responsible, went out and confronted the boys for their actions. At this, there was a small skirmish between the two parties but later, the boys left the area.
However, they returned again in larger numbers after a while. Almost 30 boys, all armed with guns and rods, waited for his uncle in their society. When his family found out, they went out to see what was going on.
But as per Ghani, as soon as they walked out, they were met with gunshots. One of which hit his younger brother in the leg and one stray bullet hit his father in the eye. Sadly, Ghani Tiger’s father Dawood Butt could not take the toll of the fatal wound and succumb on his way to the hospital. Ghani said that the issue could have easily been sorted, but the ATI goons were after blood. He said there were 10-15 guns firing at the same time, which is why he ran from the scene.
On the other hand, Waqar Zaka also brought an ATI spokesperson on his show. A man named Amir Ismail represented ATI and the culprits named in the incident, namely Talha Butt.
The other side of the story
Amir Ismail on Zaka’s show presented the other side of the story. He did not own up to his party member’s actions but informed that two boys, including Talha Butt, had also been shot. He said Talha had received 6 bullets, another ATI member hit with 3 bullets, while a third member was stabbed.
Moreover, Amir Ismail stated: “If it was not a two-way brawl if Ghani Tiger’s family did not shoot at these boys, how did they get shot so many times?” He went on to add that both parties used guns in the incident, not just one.
As of now, the police have arrested 3 members of the ATI in the Sialkot shooting that took Dawood Butt’s life. The country still continues to demand #JusticeForDawood.
