Arshad Sharif: Demand for investigation into death of Pakistani journalist in Kenya
Pakistani journalist Arshad Sharif is calling for an investigation into the bail following his death in Kenya.

The President of Islamabad made a request for the murder of Arshad Sharif to the ministry and submitted a report by Tuesday to a petitioning officer on behalf of Rushd Sharif. During the court, the court said that the body of the journalist was in Nairobi.

Arshad Sharif's wife Jawaria told a Kenyan police spokesperson that Arshad was shot dead, but local media in Pakistan initially claimed that he had died in an accident.

No statement has yet been issued by the Kenyan or Pakistani authorities.
Meanwhile, President of Pakistan Dr. Arif Alvi says that the death of Arshad Sharif is a great loss for journalism and Pakistan. "May his soul rest in peace and may his family, including his followers, find strength to bear this shock." Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that "I am deeply saddened by the shocking news of Arshad Sharif's death."
It should be remembered that in April this year, after the no-confidence motion against former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan, Arshad Sharif had claimed that he was facing harassment from the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA). During his self-imposed exile, he lived in Dubai and London.

"Today I lost my husband and my favorite journalist"
Arshad's death was confirmed by his wife on Monday morning. Jawaria Siddique wrote on Twitter that today I lost my friend, husband and favorite journalist. Jawaria Siddiq said that the police have told him that Arshad Sharif was killed in Kenya.

Jawaria has also appealed not to share Arshad Sharif's last photo taken at a local hospital in Kenya.
Condolences were tweeted by various journalists regarding the death of Arshad Sharif in Kenya.

The news of Arshad Sharif's death was broadcast on social media, then after that the local media of Pakistan also broadcast the news of Arshad Sharif's death through sources. According to ARY News, Arshad Sharif, a journalist associated with his channel, has died in an accident in Kenya.

It should be remembered that a few days after Arshad Sharif went abroad, ARY made it clear that Arshad Sharif was no longer associated with ARY.

While his colleagues working in ARY expressed grief over the death on social media, the channel's chief executive Salman Iqbal also tweeted his condolences and said that he could not believe the news and the incident. There are no words to say.
Demand for an investigation into the alleged murder of Arshad Sharif
Many prominent journalists and social activists of Pakistan are demanding an international investigation into this alleged murder. The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan has said in a statement that the government must conduct an immediate and transparent investigation into the matter.

Journalist Mazhar Abbas has demanded the international media organizations to set up a fact-finding mission to investigate the 'murder' of Pakistan's senior anchor person and journalist. "Like the murders of many journalists (in the past), this case should not be ignored."

Anchor Naseem Zahra asked, 'How long will this blood game continue?'
