Who was Mohammad Anwar?

Anwar of Springfield, Virginia, was an immigrant from Pakistan who had come to the US in 2014. He was working as an Uber Eats driver in the Navy Yard area of DC when the two teen girls assaulted him with a stun gun and his car crashed. He was a father and a grandfather, reports suggest. Anwar is survived by a wife and two adult children in the US, while his four grandchildren live in Pakistan. 

Law enforcement sources have revealed that Anwar's car crashed and flipped over near the park when the teenage girls, who were in his car at the time, attempted an armed carjacking. He is said to have been driving a gray sedan about a block north of Nationals Park in 1200 block of Van Street SE at the time of the crime.

His name 'should be remembered like George Floyd's' 

Twitter is appalled on watching the viral video that shows Anwar fighting until his death. A large number of social media users have hailed him as a "hero" for fighting back and even noted that he should be remembered like the victim of police violence, George Floyd. 

One tweeted, "Mohammad Anwar's name should be remembered like George Floyd's is, if not more. Mohammad was a decent, hard-working, honest man, and a hero for fighting back against carjacker." Another wrote, "Can’t stop thinking about Mohammad Anwar. 66 yrs old working hard for @Uber to make ends meet killed in such a gruesome way. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajawoon."

One user tweeted, "I’m sorry but the anger in my body is too damn much. Mohammad Anwar was and will always be a hero. Those two girls no mater what age...deserve nothing but the worst. No forgiveness. Fuck em." One wrote, "Mohammad Anwar & Subhakar Khadka are unsung heroes of this pandemic. The work they have done & the abhorrent treatment they have gotten makes my skin crawl. Please tip your Uber driver & Uber eats driver. With whatever you got. I am appalled by people who have caused harm to them"
