WEB DESK: The slain social media sensation Qandeel Baloch’s mother alleged that well-known scholar Mufti Abdul Qavi, who had appeared in headlines for a controversial video and selfies with Qandeel Baloch, provoked her son into murdering her daughter.
Moreover, Qandeel Baloch’s mother disclosed that her son Waseem, who had murdered Qandeel, was also in touch with Qandeel Baloch’s ex- husband Ashiq Hussain.
“In the murder of my daughter, Ashiq Hussain (her ex-husband), Mufti Abdul Qavi and a man named Shahid were involved,” said Qandeel Baloch’s mother in an interview to a local media.
She further revealed that, their neighbors had spotted a doubtful strange man who had a beard outside Qandeel’s residence at the point when Qandeel was murdered. Qandeel’s mother revealed that neighbors had informed her that the suspicious bearded individual went inside Qandeel’s house after sometime.
Beforehand, the prominent cleric Mufti Qavi was suspended from the Ruet-i-Hilal Committee as well as the National Ulema Mushaikh Council of Pakistan after the photographs went viral with the model.
While after the outcry over the selfies with Qavi, Qandeel held a news conference and appealed to the interior ministry to provide her with security but no help was provided.
