Chinese Officials Say That The Viral Video Of A Pakistani Student In China Being Brutally Murdered Is Fake But People Are Still Raising Questions

A video of which allegedly depicted Pakistani student in China being killed on a busy street recently went viral.

 

The video of a man lying lifeless as a frantic woman tried to stop two other men from attacking him on a busy street went viral in Pakistan.

 

A lot of people assumed this to be a video of a Pakistani student by the name of Usama Ahmed Khan who was a student in China at the Shenyang Jianzhu University.

The story being circulated along with the video was that Usama had been dating a local Chinese girl. The girl’s brother and father had found out about the relationship, disapproved and as a result killed Usama in cold blood on a busy street as passersby looked on.

The video itself is bone-chilling to watch. Teamed with the fact that the person being brutally murdered in the video was assumed to be Pakistani, everyone became incensed and called upon the Pakistani government to take notice immediately.

And of course, people were upset by the video.

 

Apparently, this is not the first time such news has emerged from China regarding a young Pakistani.

 

But Lijian Zhao, the Chinese Embassy’s Deputy Chief of Mission to Pakistan tweeted about that the video was fake

He said that the news had even been discredited by the Pakistan Foreign Ministry and had no truth to it.

 

A press release on the website for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan also states that the video was not of Usama.

The press release claimed that Usama had committed suicide and that a Pakistani official in China was working closely on the case with the help of Chinese authorities to make sure Usama’s body was transported safely back to Pakistan.

 

But the question remains; who was the unidentified man in the video? Some people seem to think it was a German citizen but there is no confirmation on this news as well.

Whatever the case may be, it is indeed a very sad incident and hopefully, whoever the young man was and whatever the story may be, hopefully, justice is served.

What are your thoughts on this entire incident? Let us know in the comments.
