ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Ulema Council Chairman Hafiz Tahir Ashrafi is being treated in King Abdul Aziz Medical City in Riyadh for “medical complications” while on a personal visit to Saudi Arabia.
“I’m recovering rapidly,” Ashrafi told Arab News, without elaborating on the reason for his hospitalization.
“After successful surgery, doctors are satisfied about the recovery process. I’m grateful to King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for having the best treatment.”
Ashrafi, a frequent visitor to the Kingdom, said senior Saudi officials visited him in the hospital and enquired about his health.
In May, Saudi Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh gave Ashrafi a special shield for his service to Muslim unity, and to the defense and protection of the Two Holy Mosques in the Kingdom.
