Sindh CM announces Rs1m for Hanif Muhammad’s treatment

Karachi—Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah on Monday ordered authorities to release Rs 1 million for medical treatment of former Pakistan batsman Hanif Mohammad who was admitted to a private hospital on Sunday due to respiratory complications.
Hanif, who was diagnosed with lung cancer three years ago, underwent lung surgery earlier, but doctors are now saying that chemotherapy will not be an effective option for further treatment, according to his son and former Test cricketer Shoaib Mohammad.
Paying a visit to Hanif, the Sindh chief minister told the 81-year-old that he is a fan and assured the cricket great that the government is trying to help him in “every possible manner”.
According to Shoaib, who is now a Pakistan International Airlines employee, told media persons that new treatments for the disease are expensive and will be difficult for him to finance on his own.
“The latest and effective treatment for this problem costs double the amount of the previous treatment and we will need the help of the government — probably from sports funds to help his (Hanif’s) recovery,” he said.—APP
