Some local media said ul-Haq was in the neighbouring city of Rawalpindi when he was shot and killed. "His guard had gone out minutes before the attack and upon his return he saw my father in critical condition".

Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari said the brutal murder of Maulana Samiul Haq was "utterly condemnable". The number of attackers involved also remained unclear.

He was regarded as "Father of the Taliban" and had close ties to Taliban leader Mullah Omar. Haq's body is being shifted to the district headquarters hospital, Dawn reported, quoting TV reports.

The statement concluded that both the passenger and the driver had broken laws for seriously endangering public safety. The investigation showed that a 48-year-old woman passenger, surnamed Liu, planned to get off at a certain stop.

Samiul Haq was now the chancellor of Darul Uloom Haqqania, a Deobandi Islamic seminary which is the alma mater of many prominent Taliban members. He added that the West never gave the Taliban a chance to implement its system. He was chief of his eponymous faction of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-S).

A holder of Sanad-e-Fazilat-o-Faraghat and Sanad Daura Tafseer-e-Quran from Darul Uloom Haqqania, and Shaikh-ul-Hadith (honorary) from Darul Uloom Deoband, Maulana Sami imparted religious education at his alma mater to the students and held important positions in the academic and administrative staff of the seminary.

Pakistan's President Arif Alvi and Prime Minister Imran Khan condemned Haq's killing.
