LAHORE – Pakistan Muslim League (N) Lahore President and Member of the National Assembly Pervaiz Malik passed away on Monday.
Reports in local media quoting his family said the former Minister for Commerce passed away after cardiac arrest. Malik was reportedly ill for quite some time and breathed his last earlier today.
His son, Ali Pervaiz, while speaking with a leading daily said his father was ill for a long time and passed away after a heart attack. My father continued to look after party matters on the leadership’s direction despite being ill, he added.
Meanwhile, Malik’s brother and UHS V-C Professor Dr Javed Akram said he passed away following prolonged cardiac issues. He was brought to Akram Medical Complex. His funeral prayers will be offered tomorrow at 9am at a ground near Gaddafi Stadium Lahore.

He was a valuable asset of PML-N and it will not be possible to fill the gap he has left behind, the Leader of the Opposition said.
A number of political leaders have expressed condolences on the passing away of the PML-N stalwart.

انکل پرویز ملک ایک نہایت اچھے، عجز و انکسارکا پیکر اور خلق خدا کا بھلا کرنے والے رحم دل انسان تھے۔ ان کی وفات کا اتنا ہی شدید صدمہ ہے جیسے اپنے والد اور شفیق بزرگ کو کھونے کا غم۔ اللہ تعالی مرحوم کو جنت الفردوس میں بلند مقام عطا فرمائے اور لواحقین کو صبر جمیل دے۔ آمین
