President Alvi apologies for spreading death rumours about Jamali

President Arif Alvi deleted a tweet and apologised for sharing incorrect information about the health of former Prime Minister Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali.

In a tweet, the President said, “I have deleted the Tweet, based on wrong info with apologies to the family. Mir Zafrullah Jamali is on the ventilator. I talked to Omar Jamali who confirmed this. May Allah grant him immediate recovery.”

Taking a cue from President, all the media outlets also promptly break the false news much to the annoyance of the Jamali family.

Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali is battling for life after being placed on a ventilator following a heart attack and severe breathing problems.

The senior politician is under treatment at the Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology (AFIC) in Rawalpindi for respiratory complications.

He served as the 15th Prime Minister of Pakistan from 2002 until his resignation in 2004.

Jamali was Chief Minister of Balochistan for two non-consecutive terms (from June–December 1988 and November 1996 –February 1997).
