Pakistan Jamaat’s veteran leader Abdul Ghaffar Aziz dies; Jamaat Ameer condoles

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has issued the following message of condolence on 5 October 2020 expressing deep shock at the death of Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan’s Nayeb-e-Ameer Abdul Ghaffar Aziz.

Noted religious scholar and Arabic litterateur Abdul Ghaffar Aziz has played pivotal role in spreading and circulating the messages, teachings and sermons of Islam in the global arena along with his active participation in the Islamic movement of Pakistan. As the Assistant Secretary General of World Supreme Ulama Council, he also made some great efforts to unify religious scholars. He always raised his voice in favor of the oppressed people in different international platforms, seminars, meetings and gatherings. He had a strong communication network with the Islamic organizations of various countries. World’s Islamic movements, particularly the Islamic movement of Pakistan have lost a great leader at his demise. I am expressing my deep shock over his death.

May Allah accept all his noble deeds and services to bless him with Jannah. I am extending sympathy to his mournful family, relatives and his associates and colleagues both in Pakistan and elsewhere across the globe. May Allah help them all to hold patience.
