PTI MP and TV host Dr Aamir Liaquat Hussain, who died on Thursday, is scheduled to be buried today in the courtyard of Abdullah Shah Ghazi’s shrine in Karachi.
Aamir’s family said his funeral prayer will be held after Friday prayers.
Aamir’s first wife, Bushra, shared information about the televangelist’s funeral on Twitter.
She said the funeral prayers will be held at Jamia Masjid at the Abdullah Shah Ghazi Shrine at 2pm following Friday prayers.
She added that the children of Aamir chose not to carry out an autopsy to determine the exact cause of their father’s death.
“Ahmed Aamir and Duaa-e-Aamir have taken the decision to not have the body go through a postmortem and his body will be taken to its final destination in peace and calm,” she added.
“May Allah forgive him (Aamir), bless the departed soul and have mercy upon him granting him the highest rand in Jannah,” the televangelist’s wife prayed for the departed soul.
Ahmed reached at morgue
Meanwhile, Aamir’s son, Ahmed, who was living in London for his studies, arrived at the morgue, run by the social assistance organization, Chhipa, on Friday afternoon. The family was waiting him for the funeral.
