The Babrra massacre (Pashto: د بابړې خونړۍ پېښه‎; or Babara massacre) was a mass shooting on 12 August 1948 in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa of Pakistan, in which more than 600 unarmed Pashtun supporters of the Khudai Khidmatgar movement were killed and about 1,200 injured. It happened on Babarra ground in Charsadda District on the order of the chief minister of the then NWFP (Today’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), Abdul Qayyum Khan Kashmiri (not to be confused with Sahibzada Abdul Qayyum Khan, NWFP’s first chief minister during the British Raj).
