When he was being arrested, he suddenly started shouting in Pushto that his principal was alleged of blasphemy. The scene was captured by a private media camera in which Faheem the alleged murderer was shouting in Pushto language, “I have been taught… to kill… to not be afraid. Don’t be afraid of disrespecting the one who commits blasphemy.”
Frontier Corps arrested him and then passed him to the police. He told the officers who were arresting him that they can kill him.
Shabqadar police told that Faheem shot his principal Sareer multiple times. Sareer was critically wounded and was taken to the hospital but could not survive longer.
District Police Officer (DPO) Charsadda Zahoor Afridi took notice of the incident and confirmed it.
The recording in camera confirmed that the accused murderer confessed that he shot his principal dead with six fires. The social media reports initially reported that the culprit had no regret of killing his principal.
Earlier Sareer the college principal snubbed Faheem for being absent for three days from college. Therefore, Faheem was out raged for his short attendance of 3 days while he was in Faizabad sit- in procession.
In November Tehreek-e-Khatm-e-Nabuwwat, Tehreek Labaik Ya Rasool Allah (TLY) and Sunni Tehreek Pakistan (ST) protested against the law minister Zahid Hamid for making amendments in Khatam-e-Nabuwwat clause. The protesters kept the main Faizabad interchange blocked till the law minister did not resign.
Blasphemy has become a very sensitive issue in Pakistan. In 2017 in Abdul Wali Khan University Mardan a student Mashal Khan was beat to death after accusing him of blasphemy over social media. Later the investigation team of Mashal cleared him of all charges.
