Ah! Khalid Murtaza Shaheed
Great tribute to the most senior comrade late Khalid Murtaza, 
from the founder leader  Mr. Altaf Hussain 
 

Ahh  !  Another most faithful, courageous, steadfast and most senior ideological comrade, Khalid Murtaza passed away today, March 6, 2021 in Karachi, Pakistan. He is no longer with us physically, but he will always live in the memories of all true loyal ideological comrades due to his tireless, hard work, struggle, determination, eternal sacrifices and because of his deeds.

We pray that O Allah make us all such brave, fearless and true ideological comrades.  Amin 
In the last four years of the 1980s, the paramilitary Rangers in Sindh began to intensify their offensive and brutal operation against the MQM.  Khalid Murtaza Shaheed was the leader of the Steel Mills Trade Union and elected chairman of CBA  of United Workers Front at that time. All the workers of the Steel Mills were protesting against the anti-labor policies of the Steel Mills management.  Meanwhile, in April 1990, a grand workers' meeting was held at the Steel Mills.  After the peaceful conduct of the meeting, the workers were on their way home when the Rangers' death squad, consisting of trained snipers, opened indiscriminate firing on Khalid Murtaza Shaheed and his comrades with deadly weapons, several workers were killed and injured, Khalid Murtaza was also seriously injured. Few bullets hit Khalid Murtaza in the back and spine. He was seriously injured and remained under treatment at Liaquat National Hospital in Karachi for a long time.  

I personally use to visit him in the hospital. I always found him determined and courageous. He used to say that cruel and ruthless beasts could not demoralize us by committing such cowardly acts.
Despite all the medical treatment, Khalid Murtaza could not fully recover and his lower body was paralysed due to which he had to use a wheelchair.
Despite being in a wheelchair, he used to be present at every programme and meeting of the movement.

Whether it is a Haqiqi gang who sold themselves to the army or any group committing treason in the movement, Khalid Murtaza Shaheed not only remained strong and steadfast like a rock in every occasion of any betrayal and trial in the movement but also increased the morale and courage of other comrades. Alas, he died on Saturday morning, March 6, 2021, due to severe injuries and disability.
 To Allah we belong and to Him we shall return.
 O Allah!  Give Khalid Murtaza  the status of martyr and be counted among the martyrs.

O Allah! May Khalid Murtaza Shaheed be blessed with paradise, may his family be blessed with patience and may his companions be blessed with the strength to be courageous and give courage and determination like Khalid Murtaza Shaheed to our comrades to carry out the work of the movement. Amen.
