Mashal Khan’s sister spoke to Geo News about her brother, a journalism student at the Abdul Wali Khan University. Here is a transcript of the interview:
My brother, Mashal Khan, was a nice personality. Education was important to him. He used to say that life should not be without education. He would always carry a pen and a book in his hand.
This is his room. He would sit here regularly to write.
I remember that he used to say, “small minds discuss people; average minds discuss events.”
Education was his heart and soul. When he would come home, he would sit down to teach us as well. He was not just my brother. He was my best friend, my teacher. He would explain things to me, which even my teachers had trouble explaining.
