Mukhtar Bukhari a lawyer by profession, a philanthropist, a honest person whose name has everything in it. It is said that a personality is dramatically influenced by the name of a person.
And Shaheed Mukhtar Bukhari was the person who tried to fulfill his duty and tried to imitate the traits of Hazrat Ameer Mukhtar in his real life and was successful to implement them. Shaheed was a simple person and a genius lawyer. He rendered services for the Millat e Jafariya without thinking about his life and his family.
As we know that Shia lawyers are on high stake these days, Mukhtar Bukhari was not only a lawyer, he was also fighting cases of falsely convicted momineen and he achieved such a success that many of the convicted were released due to his strong preseverance in dealing these cases fabricated by different attention seeking ,popularity hungry officials to malign shia muslims.
He received many threats from different banned outfits due to his active and courageous stance. In spite of these threats he never backed off which is highly respectable because people usually care about their lives but this person didn't even care about his life for a single time.
After the martyrdom of lawyer Shaheed Waqar Hussain Naqvi he was also martyred during judicial trial, while he was seeking justice for the imprisoned innocent Shia muslims.
He was supported by his family throughout his life . In 2011 when he was martyred when he was coming back to home from court this day by yazidi terrorists and a point black clear head shot was taken.
He succumbed to his injuries before reaching hospital. This person who played a pivotal role and set new trends and benchmarks of courage, in the history of such proceedings passed away with such a zeal ,pride and honour and moving scenes were witnessed as people belonging to all walks of life, turned up to offer his Namaz-e-Janaza.
His shahadat anniversary coincides this year with Shahadat anniversary of Shaheed Ameer-e-Mukhtar Saqafi [RA]. His services will always be remembered and honest people like him are hard to find today.
Shaheed is not typically a person. He is an ideology, an ideology to seek justice, to follow the path which is assigned by the Imam, to support and stand for the people and to make us proud. His life is like an open book for all of us and an important lesson to learn that when you are really into something and the cause is important and the duty is our duty unto Imam a.s then backing off is not the option for the true soldier of Imam.
His martyrdom left deep scars and multiplied the grievances of many families and even today after almost 2 years people are unable to forget him.
He was such a stalwart in his own right that it will be very difficult to fill the void left by him although he is a living and continued inspiration for many of the younger aspirants who emulate his personality and his professionalism .
Indeed the sacred blood of such God fearing people produces hundreds of their competent successors for the cause of betterment and truth.
