KARACHI: Family of late iconic qawwal Amjad Sabri on Monday has decided to leave Pakistan over security fears.
According to latest media reports, the late sufi qawwal’s brother, Azmat Sabri, revealed they intend to shift to London in order to protect their lives. “Although, we have spent all our lives in Karachi, we’re now scared. Our lives are at stake in Liaquatabad since Amjad’s murder,” he said.
“We feel insecure and it has become difficult living under these circumstances,” he said while adding that Amjad has left behind three daughters and two sons and the family must think about their future and well being.
Azmat Sabri said he would apply for visa through former chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry. He also appealed from the government to bear their expenses to go abroad.
Amjad Sabri was shot dead in Karachi’s Liaquatabad area on 22 June 2016 after unknown gunmen opened fire on his car. The attack left the country in grief and shock. -Business Recorder
