The Brutal murder was filmed that caused international shock and outrage.

Daniel Pearl was researching on Islamist militants in the port city of Pakistan, Karachi from where he was kidnapped on 23rd January 2002 and about a month later after several ransom demands a graphic video showing Perl’s murder by beheading was given to officials.
