MQM-P leader Adil Siddiqui dies of coronavirus

Karachi

December 1, 2020

Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan senior leader and former provincial minister Adil Siddiqui passed away on Monday.

Siddiqui had tested positive for Covid-19 on November 22. As his health deteriorated, doctors moved him onto a ventilator for over a week at the Ziauddin Hospital in Karachi.

Siddiqui had arrived in the country earlier this month after he ended his self-imposed exile and was also suffering from a lung-related disease.

The former lawmaker was born on May 12, 1963, in Karachi. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Karachi.

Condolences

Political leaders expressed sorrow on the demise of Siddiqui.

MQM-P chief Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui said the death of Siddiqui, a former member of the party’s coordination committee, was a loss for the party.

Pak Sarzameen Party Chairman Mustafa Kamal also expressed grief over the death of Siddiqui and offered condolences to the bereaved family members.
