Despite of his great work , a humble man who lead a simple life and prayed for Martyrdom through his poetry.He embraced martyrdom today on Karachi while he was going home from the college where he served as a Principal.

He was famously known as “Ustaad” (Teacher)

Sir , you achieved what you wanted but we have lost a teacher and we will never recover from this great loss.

Kindly recite Surah e Fatiha for the departed Soul.
Thank You
