5 tiros de bala al salir de una conferencia que había dado. Murió de camino al hospital.

Su muerte ha sido calificada como acto de terrorismo:

A Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf MNA, speaking to the media outside the mortuary, revealed that Sabeen had been receiving threats since the past few days. “She was running a movement for the missing persons and had been receiving threats,” he said. “It is tragic that a woman of Sabeen’s stature, who was speaking out for human rights and for an end to terrorism, was killed so mercilessly.”.

Mahmud’s killing broke hearts beating for non-violence and progressive values across the country. She freely said what she thought in a place where many people are too afraid to and by doing so spoke for many more people than just herself.

She had become a Pakistani figurehead for humanism, love and tolerance.

“She took that torch into the dark forest and so many people followed. She really, truly was a success story of the heart,” said close friend and BBC journalist Ziad Zafar.
