Later, they called on Allama Amjad Jauhari and Allama Riaz Jauhari and offered condolences.
MWM leaders paid tributes to prominent Shia Islamic scholar and orator Allama Talib Jauhari.
Allama Sadiq Jafari, Ali Hussain Naqvi, Allama Mubashir and other members accompanied Allama Baqir Zaidi.
They said that people respect Allama Talib Jauhari beyond sectarian affiliation.
They said Allama Jauhari devoted his life to preach the message of Prophet Mohammad (BUH) and his Ahle Bayt (PBUT).
Born in pre-partition India’s Bihar province in August 1938, Talib Johari brought up among a well-known family of his pious father Allama Muhammad Mustafa Johar.
Few people know this fact that Allama Talib Jauhari got his religious education in Najaf (Iraq). Hence, he was a qualified Shia Islamic scholar.
Allama Talib Jauhari studied Islamic theology in Najaf, under Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Abul Qasim al-Khoei. He also remained a pupil of Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Baqir al-Sadr who later embraced martyrdom.
Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Sistani was one of his seniors while Allama Zeeshan Haider Jawwadi was also one of his class fellows in Najaf.
Allama Talib Jauhari also ran a Shia Islamic seminary in North Nazimabad and taught as principal and teacher.
However, he always dressed like an ordinary Shia Islamic orator of the subcontinent due to which people view him as zakir or khateeb (orator).
During 1980s and 1990s, Pakistan Television (PTV) broadcast his lectures on Holy Quran and Islamic issues under the topic of Tafheem-e-Deen and Fahmul Quran.
Then, he succeeded Allama Naseer Ijtihadi as the main scholar of Ashura under the title of Khateeb-e-Shaam-e-Ghareeban.
Due to these programmes on PTV, the entire Pakistan respect him in high esteem and gradually he became their favourite Islamic scholar and orator.
