Mufti Shakoor to be awarded Hilal-e-Imtiaz posthumously

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Monday said Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had decided to confer Hilal-e-Imtiaz posthumously on late Religious Minister Mufti Abdul Shakoor for his “outstanding and selfless public service”. The prime minister had formally directed the Cabinet Division to initiate a summary in that regard, she said in a tweet which also included a copy of the notification pertaining to nomination of Mufti Shakoor for a civil award. She said late Mufti Shakoor, who died in a car accident, was a humble person and lived a simple life dedicated to public service.
