The Namaz-e-Janaza of Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan chief Khadim Hussain Rizvi, 54, who passed away Thursday evening after a prolonged illness in Lahore, will be held at Minar-e-Pakistan at 10am on Saturday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday.

It was earlier announced that the funeral will be offered on Friday after Juma prayers but as a large number of people are expected to come from outside the country to attend the funeral, the Namaz-e-Janaza will now be held at Minar-e-Pakistan at 10am on Saturday (November 21).

Khadim Hussain Rizvi’s body is being kept at his house-cum-mosque right at the Centre between Scheme Morr and Chowk Yateem Khana on Multan Road. A large number of policemen were deployed on both sides of the mosque and the dual road is close for the public traffic, though Orange Line Metro Train service continued its operations.

A large number of Khadim Rizvi’s supporters are gathered outside the mosque.

According to family members, Khadim Rizvi was shifted to Shaikh Zayed Hospital in Lahore after his health deteriorated on Thursday evening. Doctors confirmed the death of Khadim Rizvi, saying he was brought to the hospital dead. He was suffering from fever and breathing problems. Later, Rizvi’s body was moved to his residence.
