Ghazal maestro Mehdi Hassan is dead
Mehdi Hassan, the India-born Pakistani ghazal maestro, passed away at a Karachi hospital Wednesday after a prolonged illness. He was 84.

His son Arif told Geo News that his father died of breathing complications at a private nursing home in Karachi.

The ghazal king Mehdi Hassan had been discharged from hospital only last month. He was back in hospital only a day later but was not put on a ventilator.

"My father has been ill for the last 12 years but this year, his condition has deteriorated significantly... in the last one month," said Arif. "He was released from hospital for just one day before being admitted again."

Mehdi Hassan, who has a huge fan following all over the world, had been suffering from lung, chest and urinary tract ailments for the past many years.

Hassan leaves behind his nine sons and five daughters. He married twice. Both his wives are dead.
