    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    On 13 April Mashal Khan , a handsome young student of Journalism in Mardan university was lynched to gruesome death by fellow students who had gathered in thousands. The young charming student known for extensive reading of philosophers and scientists was accused of asking difficult questions. The mob comprising students and university employees first shot him with a pistol and then kicked the injured student to death. His body was deprived of clothes and attempts were made to burn the dead body. Mashal, who hailed from a poor rural family had promised his mother that he would visit her over the weekend. The mother received brutally disfigured corpse of her son instead. Mashal who was the future hope of a very poor family was burried by close relatives as charges of blasphemy in Pakistan also result in social boycott.
    I am a university teacher in the UK. I cherish students like Mashal who read a lot and have a critical mind. I watched the video of lynching of Mashal inside the confines of a university and felt like dying with him. The link of the gruesome incident is given below. Its very graphic and is very upsetting.

    I have setup this funding campaign to express solidarity with the parents of Mashal Khan. I have asked a few friends to obtain bank account details of the father of Mashal . Reluctantly the details were given as he is a proud man and wants justice more than donations. All contributions collected will however be directly transferred to him as a mark of solidarity with his family.

      Update from the Page owner

      Many thanks to all wellwishers who expressed their solidarity by wishes and donations. Now as the trustee of the collectec amount I will wait till the site makes it available to me after necessary deductions. The site says it takes 6-10 days to do so. I would then transfer the amount to Mashal's family and we can take pride that we will be laying the foundation of Mashal Khan Foundation which the family aspires to establish. Hope we all continue this very inspiring work.

      Today I spoke to the brother of Mashal Khan on his mobile. He appreciated the good wishes and provided his bank details. Whatever amount is collected it will be transferred to his account together with all messages of support. They now do realise that the world at large expresses solidarity with them and appreciates their graceful courage shown in times of extreme adversity.
