KARACHI: New Chief Minister of Sindh, Murad Ali Shah has ordered authorities to release Rs. 1 million for the treatment of former Pakistani batting great, Hanif Mohammad.
The legendary Pakistani batsman was admitted in a private hospital on Sunday due to complexities regarding respiration. He was diagnosed with lung cancer three years ago and underwent a lung surgery earlier, but, the cancer is recurring.
It has been learnt through his son, who is a former test cricketer, Shoaib Mohammad, that doctors have stated that chemotherapy will not be an effective treatment in his case.
Murad Ali Shah visited the Little Master himself and assured him that the government will facilitate him in every possible manner, he also expressed that he is a big fan of him.
Shoaib Mohammad talked to Dawn on Sunday and told that it would be difficult for him to afford the expansive treatment of this disease.
“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.
