Previous Jamaat-I-Islami (JI) emir Syed Munawar Hasan passed away on Friday at a medical clinic in Karachi where he was under treatment for as far back as not many days.
Hasan was conceived in Delhi in August 1941, a fortnight before Abul A’ala Maududi propelled the JI. In the late 1950s, in the wake of adjusting himself to the National Students Federation, he traversed to Islami Jamiat-I-Talaba.
Chosen emir in 2009 with around 70pc decisions in favor of the principal term, Munawar Hasan began losing his prevalence inside the gathering after JI’s lackluster display in the 2013 general races. He filled in as the fourth JI boss from 2009 to 2014.
Pioneer of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif gave his sympathies to the expired’s family and to party laborers.
“His administrations to Pakistan and pledge to Islam were steadfast. May Allah rest his spirit in harmony!”
