The prominent Pakistani cleric Maulana Samiul Haq, known as the "father of the Taliban", has been killed in a knife attack at his home in Rawalpindi.
"My father could not join the protest in Islamabad due to road blockage".
"He was resting in his room". When the driver returned, he found Maulana Samiul Haq lying in a pool of blood with several stab marks all over his body, added Hamidul. He said Maulana Sami-ul-Haq was a great scholar of Islam.
Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif condemned the martyrdom of the JUI-S chief and expressed vast grief over it. In a statement, he said Maulana Sami-ul-Haq s political and religous services will be remembered. He was member of the Senate from 1985 to 1991 and again from 1991 to 1997.
Last month, a high-level delegation from Afghanistan had called on Sami, known as the "Father of the Taliban", at Darul Uloom Haqqania and urged him to play a role in resolving the Afghan issue.
Samiul Haq was now the chancellor of Darul Uloom Haqqania, a Deobandi Islamic seminary which is the alma mater of many prominent Taliban members.
