Jafaria Alliance chief and former MQM Senator Allama Abbas Kumaili passed away here on Saturday after a prolonged illness.
Kumaili, 70, had been under treatment for diabetes and cardiac issues at a local private hospital in Soldier Bazar area for the last four months.
In 2014, Allama Abbas Kumaili’s son, 42-year-old Allama Ali Akbar Kumaili, was shot dead in Bhangoria Goth, along with his guard.
Ali Akbar was going home with his children from his ice factory located in Bhangoria Goth, Block-2 of Azizabad, when unidentified armed men, waiting for him near the factory, opened fire at them.
Akbar was shot thrice – twice in his chest and once in his abdomen – and his guard Jumman Khan was shot twice.
Both men were taken to the Ziauddin Hospital in critical condition but succumbed to their injuries while receiving treatment.
