Legendary comedian Umer Sharif will be laid to rest at the graveyard of Saint Syed Abdullah Shah Ghazi (RA) in Karachi as per his wish, Sindh Minister for Information Saeed Ghani said.
Ghani in a message from his Twitter handle said that measures were taken by the provincial government to make arrangements in this regard.
The announcement from Saeed Ghani came after the son of the comedian Jawad Umer said that it was his father’s wish that he would be buried at the premises of the shrine of Saint Abdullah Shah Ghazi (RA).“
My father is no more and we are trying to bring back his body as soon as possible,” he said.
The Sindh govt has previously also provided assistance to the legendary comedian for his medical treatment abroad.
