According to his brother, Abdul Hameed, the funeral prayers would be held at his native town of Thala Sarin. He was also given a monthly pension by the district administration because he was unable to work.

Ijaz’s pelvic bone was fractured in an accident, making his right leg smaller than the other.

Meanwhile, Pakistan’s second tallest man, Naseer Soomro, stands seven feet nine inches tall and suffers from severe lung illness. The provincial government had previously stated that it would cover the costs of Naseer’s medication, who is from Sindh’s Shikarpur area.
