He was well known for his work with clients who were poor or who were charged under Pakistan's vigorous blasphemy laws. After he became the defence lawyer for Junaid Hafeez in a controversial and widely publicized blasphemy case, he received death-threats but refused to abandon his client. He was shot and killed by gunmen on 7 May 2014.
