was a Pakistani convicted murderer, targeted killer, and a former political activist of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM).
In 1997, he was convicted for a triple murder and was awarded a death sentence for targeting the murder of Shahid Hamid, a bureaucrat and managing-director of KESC (now K-Electric), along with his driver Ashraf Brohi, and his guard Khan Akbar, all of whom were killed in the neighborhood of Defence Housing Authority, Karachi on the 5 July 1997. After arrest by the CID in 1998 and upon returning from Bangkok, Mirza was awarded death sentence by the Anti-Terrorism Court on 24 May 1999. Since then, his family have filed clemency applications in two separate occasions: first in Sindh High Court in 2000 and in the Supreme Court of Pakistan in 2002; all applications were rejected by the apex court.
In 2013, his family submitted another application to President of Pakistan for clemency which was also rejected. After a death warrant was issued on 11 March 2015, the execution was set to be carried out in Central Jail Mach in Balochistan on 19 March 2015. Upon hearing the execution news, his family begun pleading his case where his wife and sisters held multiple press conferences, demanding a re-investigation. After releasing a confession video to Geo News where he leveled charges on murder involvement of Altaf Hussain, Mirza's execution has been halted on Presidential orders and an active investigation against MQM has been launched by the Pakistan government.
