Father of Nazia and Zoheb Hassan passes away in Karachi
Wise men say, “Good people die young.” This makes sense when we recall the era of twenty years ago. When an innocent, bubbly, melodious, Nazia Hassan, changing the paradigm of Pakistan’s music scene with her brother, Zoheb Hassan, lost her battle to cancer.
Friday night, her father, Basir Hassan also passed away in Karachi. He was a Karachi based businessman. His father, Syed Saghir Uddin Hassan was a key member of the Muslim League.

Nazia’s brother and co-singer Zoheb Hassan took to Facebook to share the news accompanied by a photo with his father. He wrote “Goodbye my hero, my friend and the air beneath my wings. Farewell until we all meet again.. you son, Zoheb.”
Goodbye my hero, my friend and the air beneth my wings. Farewell until we all meet again.. you son, Zoheb
However, Zohaib is in London right now and because of the global ban on international flights due to the current situation, it is unsure whether he will make it to his father’s funeral or not.
