All Round View(Peshawer): The leader of Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi was buried here at Lahore after a huge funeral attended by tens and thousands of his followers.
The funeral prayers were offered at the Minar-e-Pakistan and were attended by party workers and supporters who descended on the provincial capital since Friday from all over the country.
The funeral was led by late Khadim Hussain’s son Hafiz Saad Rizvi. The funeral scheduled to be held at 10 in the morning got delayed due to the huge gathering as the body was moved from his residence to the venue.
Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi had ended his sit-in at Faizabad interchange, Islamabad on Monday to protest the publication of blasphemous caricatures of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him). However, he developed a fever and complained of breathing problem, according to his party spokesman. He was rushed to the hospital but expired on the way on Thursday night. The 55-year-old clerk is survived by his wife, two sons and three daughters.
Apart from the party followers, the funeral was attended by a large number of religious and political figures and the public in general.
