Javed Iqbal

Sodomized and killed 100 boys in Pakistan. All of the boys were street urchins which he drugged, molested, strangled and then dissolved in vats of acid, keeping their shoes and clothes as trophies. About halfway through, began a photodocumentation of his efforts, which he sent to police when the goal of 100 was attained. As nobody in Islamabad notices when a street urchin goes missing, Iqbal claims he could have achieved 500 had he the desire.

"I am Javed Iqbal, killer of 100 children... I hate this world, I am not ashamed of my action and I am ready to die. I have no regrets. I killed 100 children."

Javed means immortal; Iqbal means desire. This gentleman is not to be confused with Javed Iqbal, cricket player, or Javed Iqbal, surgeon, or several other prominent Javed Iqbals in Pakistan.
