Prime Minister Imran Khan’s close friend and special assistant Naeemul Haque was laid to rest in Karachi’s Gizri Graveyard on Sunday. Haque, one of the founding members of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, died on Saturday after a prolonged battle with cancer. PM Khan said that he was devastated by the death of one of his oldest friends.
As PM Khan could not attend his funeral prayers, Firdous Ashiq Awan, the special assistant to PM Khan, said that prayers will be held for Haque at Prime Minister House on Monday. They will be attended by Haque’s family, federal ministers and PTI leaders.
