    Sardar Abdur Nishtar, President of the Pakistan Muslim League and a pioneer in the struggle for Pakistan, died of a heart attack yesterday, and was laid to rest beside the mazars of the Quaid-i-Azam and the Quaid-i-Millat last evening.

    Flags were flown at half mast on all State buildings as a mark of respect to the dead leader. All business institutions were closed and the City-Karachi-observed complete hartal.

    The funeral procession which started from the residence of the League Chief proceeded to Jehangir Park, where Maulana Ihteshamul Haq led the janaza prayers. The funeral, the biggest since the funeral of Quaid-i-Millat, then proceeded via the Bunder Road and Jinnah Road to the Quaid-i-Izam's mazar, and there Nishtar was laid to rest.
