A Blackburn father-of-four who had his ears cut off in a horrific street attack has died.
Sajed Choudry, 41, died yesterday after being attacked in Blackburn on November 27.
He underwent a 14-hour operation to have his ears re-attached, using a skin graft from his legs to complete the surgery.
However, his condition further deteriorated after he developed a large blood clot in his heart and he died.
His daughter, Mariya Choudry, confirmed that her dad had passed away and asked for privacy at this difficult time.
Ahsan Choudry, Sajed’s older son, was also attacked during the same incident in November, had half of his hand cut off. He also suffered cuts to his head.
Following the attacks four people were charged with two counts of attempted murder and appeared before Lancashire magistrates earlier this month.
They are Sadaqat Ali, 36, Rafaqat Ali, 38, Fazal Ilhai, 62, and a 13-year-old boy who cannot be named for legal reasons.
The Crown Prosecution Service will now have to decide whether to charge them with murder.
As you’re here…
5Pillars have one humble request from you…
Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.
5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.
This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.
Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).
You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?
If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.
