Master Shoukat’s Video Denial?


‘Master Shaukat’ who was accused by Maria Sadaqat, in her statement in the Pagodi Police station, near Murree, (Tehsil, District Pindi) on 29th May, of beating and burning her, has also issued his own video. This video is also available on Facebook and other social media outlets. Someone, a supporter of Master Shaukat, referred this video to us with the taunt that if you believe ‘girl’s video’ then you must also watch this ‘pious man’s video’. We are therefore making available on this website, without any editing or change. Apart from Maria’s brief statement in great pain in which she accuses Master Shaukat (not clearly audible) and Mian Arshad, there is another longer video, recorded on a handheld device by someone, at the Police Station. We will also upload that video. So a total of three videos are now in circulation on social media: Two of Maria and one of Master Shaukat. All three are must to be watched by all aware responsible and God fearing citizens of Pakistan and the whole world. Ultimately citizen’s consciousness will determine the fate of any system of justice.

It is important to mention and to note, as you watch these videos that Maria – who died on Wed 1st June 2016, at Pakistani Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) in Islamabad, out of her 85% burns – is laboring to speak under great pain, words are difficult to utter, her skin, her arms, face, neck, every part of her body, all muscles are burnt and even a millimeter of movement is a herculean act. Master Shaukat’s video starts with him, doing an ablution (wuzu) in his rather posh bathroom; this goes on for more than 60 seconds; he then holds on a Quran in his hands and testifies that he has been wrongly accused; he has nothing to do with the case, and Maria’s father had some financial problems with him so Maria was instructed to name him before dying. How credible is that? Let educated people of Pakistan be a jury on this question.

But Jury of Pakistani people must keep in mind few facts: Maria’s statement captured on video is a running happening event, happening in what you call in media language ‘real time’; Master Shaukat’s video is a planned act; has many retakes, has been made professionally and it appears that it has been made under legal advice to create excuses and evidences. Police help cannot be ruled out as well. You will find more analysis in my blog.

  1. We buy and sell our religion Islam as a commodity against the price of a Pork Barrel ! I would trust a person who has a bottle of wine in his hand and says he is innocent of a crime that he is accused of. But not a person who holds the holy book and performs the drama of ablution and goes to the mosque five times a day. We are today a nation that has no CHARACTER and make mockery of ALLAH and His Message to Humanity.

  2. It’s sunnah to gargle with right hand but clean nose with left. This so called devout muslim should know that unless he is just another pretender.

  3. I as an individual had experienced personally seeing Quran being made witness (nauzbillah) to false statements/promises etc. i am saying that because i myself was witness of truth 30 years ago (something irrelevant to current matter but still in connection through our Holy book Quran) and since then although not being able to do anything i stopped trusting these swearing people. So i do not believe this person shaukat who at his age and experience is not even performing wuzu correctly (had it not been a serious case this might have gone without being judged). In my opinion his very calculated statement is not trustworthy, just like i believe that woman in Lahore confessed burning her daughter just to protect the son and son in law who might have been the actual criminals for the brutal act.
    A person’s past way of life and attitude cannot always be taken as a guarantee of him or her being or not being a criminal. More so in these times of dajjali fitnas apearing all around.
    All of us are expressing opinions. Showing wisdom. Fuming out our thoughts and feelings hoping, wishing and praying for solutions. But all of us are participants of creating or/and supporting hurdles in the way of solutions too, may it be directly or indirectly.
    But then these are all my personal views nobody needs to agree.
    May Allah guide us all.
