Public figures, fans mourn the demise of Anwar Iqbal

Renowned television and stage actor Anwar Iqbal Baloch passed away in Karachi on Thursday after a protracted illness. He was 71. His funeral prayer was offered after Isha at Baitul Moqaram mosque and he was laid to rest in Mewa Shah graveyard in Karachi. The Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain extended his condolences on account of Iqbal’s demise. In a statement the Minister asserted that Iqbal's memorable roles in dramas are imprinted in the minds of his fans and the vacuum created by his departure will not be easy to fill. He prayed for the departed soul and his grieving family, according to Radio Pakistan. Iqbal’s notable works include Pul Siraat, Rista Anjana Se, and Hina Ki Khushboo. While he was a critically acclaimed actor, Iqbal’s Balochi film Hammal O Mahganj, which he produced, sparked controversy and was subsequently forced to stop screening. He was, however, lauded for his historical roles, by not only the public but also veteran PTV director Agha Nasir, who was impressed by his portrayal of Shiwani Khan in TV serial Babur. Iqbal became a prominent actor with his memorable role in Shama as "Nana ki Jan Qamru”. He acted in countless Urdu and Sindhi plays and even directed a few along the way. His debut as a director began with the serial Ishq Pecha in 1984. Since the news of his demise surfaced social media, many public figures and fans are mourning the loss. May ALLAH rest veteran actor Anwar Iqbal Baloch sb's soul in peace and give his family and friends enough strength to cope with this loss. Ameen
