Mother of ex-Jamiat president passes away
Mother of ex-Jamiat Ahlihadees president, Moulana Showkat Ahmad Shah, died last yesterday evening. She was 78.
Her funeral prayers were held at stadium grounds Lal Bazaar in which thousands of people including JKLF Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik, Jamiat president Ghulam Muhammad Butt and people from all walks participated.

Amma Jee was the mother of veteran religious scholar and Jamiat head, legendary Moulana Noor ud din Farooqi.
