Pakistani netizens are breathing a sigh of relief today because Noor Mukadam's killer has been found guilty. Zahir Jaffer has been sentenced to death by an Islamabad sessions court.

The ruling was followed by a rush of relief as netizens had prayed for justice for the deceased and her family.

Noor, 27, was found murdered at Zahir's residence in the capital's upscale Sector F-7/4 on July 20 last year. "An exemplary punishment has been given to the primary accused," Noor's father Shaukat Mukadam told the media outside the court on Thursday. He termed the verdict as a "victory" for the court and justice.

Jaffer's household staff Iftikhar and Jameel — both co-accused in the case — were sentenced to 10 years in jail, while all others, including Jaffer's parents and TherapyWorks employees, were acquitted.

The announcement of the verdict had netizens emotional. Many said that while this won't bring Noor back, they hoped it would allow for some closure for her family who's been fighting for justice since July 2021.

Twitter users commended her family, especially Noor's father, for handling the situation so gracefully. Her family never backed down and never let any comments deter their quest for justice.

The news had netizens overwhelmed and teary.

There are comments from netizens hailing the fact that justice has prevailed.

Faith in the system has been restored.

The verdict has Twitter users feeling hopeful about the response to violence against women.

All eyes have been on this case since the moment the news of Noor's murder broke and sent shockwaves throughout the country. The public has not stopped raising its voice for Noor, promising to never forget and to never stop fighting until her murderer was punished.

There is a long way to go before this country becomes safe for women, but this is a step in the right direction. The celebrations today are not just because Zahir has been convicted — they're because a woman and her family have finally gotten an ounce of justice after months of fears that her killer may walk free.

There is long way to go for proper justice. The killer and his family will try all tricks to lodge appeals upon appeals to be declared mentally unfit and allowed to flee the country.

Instant justice would be the killer is hanged immediately. Then his family can appeal to exonerate his name upon appeal.

Yet there is model town, Sahiwal, Rao Anwar, Karachi Rangers and many other cases case where one person got multiple murders in broad daylight , but nothing on them, just an easy target, if justice is here then those all also should get death penalties.

Why aren't the liberals and aurat march people condemning this verdict? Aren't they against the death penalty? I guess they don't have the guts to stand up for their cause.
