Civil Liberties pay its tribute to Dr. Khayam Khan, President of Majlis Bachao Tahreek

Civil Liberties Monitoring Committee expresses its grief and sorrow on the demise of Dr. Khayam Khan. He was the President of Majlis Bachao Tahreek (MBT) and a practicing and dedicated medical doctor. He devoted his life for the cause of poor and needy. He was also very humble and honest towards the community; his demise is a great loss to the community. He always raised voice against the atrocities on the people. He made the government responsible and accountable on the violations of human and civil rights. He had special concern towards the human and civil rights. He extended helping hand for the cause and participated in many programmes organized by civil liberties committee. He also condemned the attacks on civil liberties activists and also participated in the meetings to express his solidarity with the martyrs of Civil liberties.

Dr. Khayam Khan was always in forefront in raising the voice against fake encounters by the police and state. He was a renowned practicing doctor and though he was busy with political work, he regularly attended patients at his hospital. He knew that poor patients would be waiting for him to get treated and he never charged fee from them. For this purpose he was called as people’s doctor.

He always welcomed criticism, suggestions, discussions etc. and was very much keen to develop a secular and democratic leadership among Muslims. He took every criticism and failure in positive manner and tried to help people in best manner.

Civil Liberties believe that the community has lost a dedicated person and poor and needy lost a people’s doctor. His dedication towards his work was so strong that during his last moment, he was attending his patients. Civil Liberties Monitoring Committee expresses its condolences to his family and to the members of Majlis Bachao Tahreek (MBT) and hope that his work would be continued by his associates and kith & kin.
