She was brutally murdered by her husband of 3months who bludgeoned her body w/a 40kg dumbbell. The killer’s father is a prominent 🇵🇰 journo. 🧵 on femicide of the ‘independent’ woman. #justiceforsarah”

Khadija Siddiqi said, “For all those saying, #AyazAmir should not be blamed for his son’s actions! Like father like son!! These rascals are bred because their families nurture their actions and continuously justify them under various garbs #JusticeForSarah”

Journalist and anchorperson Meher Bokhari said, “I went to college with Sarah Inam in Canada. The sweetest, kindest soul. Soft spoken, brilliant, majoring in Economics. This was her first marriage. She had worked at the best places, traveled the world & now wanted to settle down, build a strong healthy home.”

Stephen Nash wrote on Facebook, “My dearest friend Sarah Inam was brutally murdered by her husband of 3 months yesterday in Islamabad. Sarah was a bright light in this world. Just the kindest, smartest and gentest soul. She had such a sweet innocence and naivety… and that’s now been taken away by the actions of a cruel man. It’s unfathomable.”

“She was a voracious reader and thinker. I’ve never met anyone more passionate about economics, history and religion than Sarah. No matter where you found her, she would be engrossed in some book Sarah leaves behind a family she loved unendingly, her father, mother and two big brothers. Her friends from around the world – fra Pakistan to Canada and the United Arab Emirates – mourn the loss of this smart and beautiful woman, and demand justice for Sarah.”

“The world needed more Sarah’s, and now she’s been taken. #JusticeForSarah #enddomesticviolence”
