Chief of his eponymous faction of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-S) and prominent religious scholar Maulana Samiul Haq was assassinated in a knife attack at his residence in Rawalpindi on Friday evening. He was 80.

His son Maulana Hamidul Haq told the media that his father was resting at his residence while his driver, who was also his security guard, was not present when the assailant scaled the wall to attack him with knife.

“His driver Haqqani had gone out. On his return, he found Maulana Sahib lying in a pool of blood in his bed,” he told news channels.

The assailant stabbed him several times in the chest and the head before fleeing the scene unidentified and unchallenged. The Maulana was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
