Ghulam Mustafa as a cadet

By Kazi Zulkader Siddiqui, 671/Latif

Ghulam Mustafa - Shaheed, kit no. 7849/Qasim House joined Cadet College Petaro in 1978 and left the college in 1983 after completing his Intermediate.

He was born on 1 January 1966, and obtained his shahadat in 1998 at Qasimabad, Hyderabad during an encounter with dacoits while on active police duty.


وَلا تَقُولُوا لِمَنْ يُقْتَلُ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ أَمْوَاتٌ بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ وَلَكِنْ لا تَشْعُرُونَ
And say not of those who are slain in the way of Allah: "They are dead." Nay, they are living, though you perceive (it) not. [Al-Qur'an 2.154]

Ghulam Mustafa joined Sindh Police after leaving Petaro. Before his death, he was posted as the SHO at Qasimabad, Hyderabad. While he was on duty, he received a call from a flat in his area that some dacoits had broken in. Out of a sense for duty, he rushed to the spot with one other police sipahi on a motorbike. When he approached the scene of the crime, the dacoits started shooting and he fired back at them. A bullet struck him in his stomach and he succumbed to his injuries. It is great men who fight for the sake of others and for the rule of the law and peace. Ghulam Mustafa was one of them.

May Allah accept his shahadat and grant him the choicest place in Jannatul Firdaus.
