Wiki

Abdul Rashid Ghazi (Template:عبدل رشید غازی; ca. 1964−July 10, 2007) was a Pakistani Muslim cleric, and Islamic militant, son of Maulana Muhammad Abdullah and younger brother of Abdul Aziz Ghazi. He was descended from the Sadwani clan of Mazari tribe in the town of Rojhan at the border of southern Punjab and Balochistan.

Abdul Rashid Ghazi was killed in "intense crossfire" after Pakistani troops stormed the building he and his militants had been using. He is buried at Madrassah Abdullah, Basti Abdullah near Rojhan Mazari in Central Pakistan.

Abdul Rashid Ghazi vowed to die in his Islamabad mosque rather than surrender - a pledge he kept when he was killed in intense crossfire after troops stormed the building. Since the mosque came under siege a week before, Ghazi repeatedly said that he would rather be "martyred" than give in to the government.
