Moulana Hamidul Huq, son of Samiul Huq named chief of JUI-S
AKORA KHATTAK – Maulana Hamidul Haq – son of martyred Jamiat Ulema Islam-Sami (JUI-S) chief Maulana Samiul Haq – was named acting chief of the party on Sunday.
“I have become an orphan,” Hamidul Haq said after being announced as the party’s acting chief. “Current party positions of all the members will remain the same.”
“Maulana Samiul Haq’s killers should be arrested immediately,” he further added.
Maulana Samiul Haq, an influential religious scholar and former senator, was stabbed to death at his residence in Rawalpindi on Friday. His son had said that the JUI-S chief’s “driver-cum-guard went out for 15 minutes” and returned to find him dead.
