KARACHI: Singer-turned-preacher Junaid Jamshed’s third wife, Razia Muzaffar, has filed a lawsuit at Sindh High Court (SHC), seeking her inheritance share as per the Muslim Laws.
According to details, plaintiff Raazia Muzaffar, a resident of Islamabad, submitted that she was the widow of Junaid Jamshed, who had married her on October 20, 2009, and bore her expenses till his death by sending money every month.
The plaintiff claimed that Junaid Jamshed’s children from his first wife had obtained a succession certificate from the court by concealing the fact about her heirship. She further claimed that she was now being denied her due right of inheritance from her late spouse.
Razia Muzaffar also highlighted the details of moveable and immovable properties worth millions of rupees in her lawsuit. The plaintiff said that she had approached the court to revoke the letter of administration issued in favor of Junaid Jamshed’s children from his first wife. In her lawsuit, Raazia Muzaffar requested the court to grant her the share of the inheritance.
