The funeral ceremony of internationally recognized comedian Umar Sharif’s daughter Hina Umar Sharif was observed yesterday in Lahore that was attended by a number of friends, fans and followers of the living legend. Hina, the administrator of “MAA” hospital Karachi had been suffering from Kidney issues that had been transplanted some days ago.
Umar Sharif’s son Jawad Umar filed an application in Police Station that his sister passed away due to complications of illegal kidney transplant carried out by Dr. Fawad Mumtaz. He told that Hina Umar was suffering from Kidney infection and the surgery was scheduled to be carried out in Lahore however Dr. Mumtaz fraudulently took her to an unidentified place in Azad Kashmir. The application further read that the accused used to trap innocent people and charged a huge amount besides leaving them helpless between the struggle for life and death. Dr. Mumtaz had charged Rs. 3.4 Million for Hina’s transplant.
“Dr. Mumtaz charged Rs. 3.4 Million for kidney transplant”, said Jawad Umar
Dr. Fawad was arrested by the HOTA team some days ago and was handed over to the Faisalabad Police for being nominated as a prime accused in a case of kidney removal of a poor carpenter for an illegal kidney transplant. The police however had released him on personal surety but he didn’t give up his illegal activities and the next victim was none else than Umar Sharif’s daughter whose transplant was carried out at a private house in Azad Kashmir as reported. HOTA raised the matter to CPO Faisalabad and requested him for a strict action against the police officials who were responsible for this negligence however nothing positive came out of it. The matter was taken up with IG Punjab Mr. Shoaib Dastagir on Wednesday through an official letter that demanded the arrest of Dr. Fawad Mumtaz who is nominated in four active criminal cases of illegal kidney transplant in Multan, Faisalabad and Lahore. DG HOTA (Punjab) Murtaza Haider confirmed that they have approached FIA Punjab to file a case against Dr. Mumtaz in Hina Umar Sharif’s matter.
Umar Sharif was busy in a three month long tour in USA where he was given the news of his daughter’s illness. Although the organizers didn’t tell him that she had passed away, Sharif immediately wound up his tour and got back to Pakistan at Tuesday night where he was much grieved to see his only daughter lying dead before his eyes. The burial was made on Wednesday in graveyard of Model Town Lahore in which people representing various professions and departments were present.
Who is Dr. Fawad Mumtaz?

FIA had arrested him in 2017 in illegal organ transplants of various citizens of Oman, Jordan and Libya in Lahore. Later Dr. Mumtaz was granted bail from Lahore High Court and resumed his duties at General Hospital Lahore. HOTA team has revealed that Dr. Mumtaz is a plastic surgeon and does not qualify for “Kidney Transplant” at all.
