Etymology

The slogan is the use of typical Urdu and Persian suffix Murdabad (Death to) that is placed after a person or a country name. Literally Pakistan Murdabad means Death to Pakistan and sometimes is also used to say Down with Pakistan.[1][2]

History

This slogan was first used by Tara Singh Malhotra.[3] This slogan was used by Kashmiri Muslims when Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was sentenced to death.[4] This slogan was also used in protests against the Pakistan Governments's decision of not releasing Sarabjit Singh, after saying that he was to be released shortly.[5] During a protest against the 2006 Mumbai train bombings, All India Anti-Terrorist Front carried placards of "Pakistan Murdabad".[6] It was also used by activists of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha against the terrorist attack on Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh headquarters,[7] Vishwa Hindu Parishad's protest against 2008 Mumbai attacks,[8] and Indian cricket fans' protest against the 2009 attack on the Sri Lanka national cricket team.[9] It was also used by cricket fans in the second One day International of 2007 Pakistan tour of India.[10]
