All material must be sourced in the article.
Also, I'm putting a tag on the second source since it doesn't look reliable. The website says it is "A RESOURCE CENTER FOR THE PROMOTION OF HINDUTVA", which seems to be a partisan site pushing a certain POV.Bless sins (talk) 05:37, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
For the record, I want to mention we should not claim as an absolute statement of fact that Shakeel is dead unless we find official sources from the governments of India, the U.S., or the Interpol confirming this. The sources that claim he's dead do not address this investigation conducted by India Today that questions his supposed death story. Until then, we should not treat his rumored death as official.

Dear MX,The India Today investigation in itself was a Hoax,they assumed that Shakeel is alive based ONLY on the premise that his voice is alive and that voice never belonged to him but a proxy which has been explained in detail.A man with a Red Corner notice on him cannot be travelling freely all over the work and making calls at will via prepaid sim numbers available in the public domain.The real Chhota Shakeel is actually dead-The ISI is continuing to run him.India or Pak will never declare him dead-for political reasons.Pak till denies he ever lived in Karachi-India does not have the capacity to prove that he did- Catch 22.Only the can.Pakistan is an impossible terrain for the Interpol to run an investigation and you are missing the fact that the rumoured death started off in early 2017 but was confirmed only in 2019 via Ocnus and a Journalist Robert Williamson who used to work with The Boston Globe.
There was also a confirmation in 2018 early https://www.oneindia.com/international/chhota-shakeel-is-dead-here-is-the-isis-impersonator-who-runs-the-d-syndicate-now-2611914.html
It is not appropriate to disregard the above article-It clearly states that shakeel is dead. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 08:07, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
@MX This confirms his Death please read the paper carefully https://limacharlienews.com/asia/organised-crime-in-asia/ 184.108.40.206 (talk) 12:06, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
- Dear MX,The India Today investigation in itself was a Hoax,they assumed that Shakeel is alive based ONLY on the premise that his voice is alive and that voice never belonged to him but a proxy which has been explained in detail. – That's actually not true. The source also comments on the letter and the policeman who allegedly signed it. Again, I'm not here to claim whether Shakeel is alive or dead. The problem here is sources contradict each other, and the newer sources you cite that declare him dead are: (1) not an official announcement; (2) don't comment on this India Today investigation. Why should we give unfair representation to those versions?
- Pak till denies he ever lived in Karachi – You have a source for this specific claim?
- and you are missing the fact that the rumoured death started off in early 2017 but was confirmed only in 2019 via Ocnus and a Journalist Robert Williamson who used to work with The Boston Globe. – Again, we got no OFFICIAL confirmation from U.S., Indian, or Interpol authorities. Ocnus can claim whatever it wants, but the fact that the India Today investigation stands unchallenged (Ocnus pretty much ignores it) means we will have to go by an official statement. Wikipedia is not about truth; it is about verifiability. If we have sources that do not agree on each other, we will need a source that would be authoritative enough for us to move forward. The only source that would be able to provide that is an OFFICIAL announcement from the U.S., India, or the Interpol. Until you have one, it is dishonest to unfairly represent one view over the rest.
