Murder Tongue

Nominees and Awards


It is May of 1992. The state sanctioned “Operation” has put the city of Karachi in constant unrest. Abdul Aziz Ansari wakes up at night and is informed by his daughter in law, Naseema, that his son hasn’t returned home. As a knock on their door later at night summons them to the hospital. What they witness along the way is known today as the most brutal chapter of the city’s history, a sentiment of hatred towards their race, deep rooted beneath the system.
