Palestinian Imam Dr.Fadi Muhammad Al Batsh assassinated near Surau Medan Idaman, Gombak, Kuala Lumpur. Al Fatihah!

As Syaheed Imam Dr.Fadi Muhammad Al Batsh
Lecturer in Electrical Engineering UM
(1983-2018)
It is with great sadness that I am sharing about the assassination of a young Imam from Palestine, As Syaheed Dr.Fadi Muhammad al Batsh, 35, who was shot dead by two yet to be identified Caucasian looking foreigners who were on a BMW GS on road/ off road motorbike early today at about 6 am near the Surau Medan Idaman, Gombak, Kuala Lumpur.

I came to know Dr. Fadi last year when he was our Imam for the Taraweeh prayers during Ramadhan at the Malaysian Institute of Integrity. I had interviewed him after the prayers to learn about the situation at Gaza, Palestine.



Dr. Fadi, aged 35, had completed his PhD in Electrical Engineering at Universiti Malaya in 2015 and was a Senior Lecturer teaching at Universiti Kuala Lumpur [UniKL BMI]. He leaves behind 3 children and his widow. 

From what I read from the news reports online, the Royal Malaysian Police are still investigating the murder and no further details are available at the moment.

He was said to have been shot in the head and 4 bullets had entered his body. 10 shots were said to have been fired by his assassins.

It's worrying to learn that our Palestinian brothers and sisters are not safe even within our country's borders. Their enemies are everywhere. 

May Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala grant As Syaheed Dr.Fadi entrance to His Paradises. Ameen.
