Mafia Don Dawood Ibrahim Depressed Over Sole Son Becoming Maulana
Absconding mafia don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar is reported to be suffering from bouts of depression owing to a family hurdle, which, despite his manpower and gunpower, he is unable to resolve, according to police officials.
“Moin is understood to be deadly against his father's illegal activities which have given the entire family a notorious reputation worldwide and made many of them wanted fugitives everywhere,” Thane Anti-Extortion Cell head Pradeep Sharma told IANS.
Iqbal Kaskar has informed the investigators that a deeply worried Dawood is afflicted by bouts of despondency over who would look after and handle his vast underworld empire in the future.
More so, as his other brother Anees Ibrahim Kaskar is now ageing and reportedly not in robust health, other brothers are deceased and no reliable close relatives available to take over the reins of the empire.
Iqbal Kaskar told the investigators that his nephew Moin is now a respected and qualified Maulana, who is a 'Hafiz-e-Quran', having memorized the entire Holy Quran which comprises 6,236 verses.
However, his wife Saniya and their three minor children have not abandoned him and are living with him in the small quarters provided by the mosque management.
Moin's main religious activities comprise teaching Holy Quran and Islamic preachings to young children, leading the call of prayers and congregation of 'namaz' at various occasions and other social-religious responsibilities associated with a cleric.
Earlier, Moin, who is a business management graduate, used to help out his father in some of his lines of work, but gradually drifted away to the "divine call of Allah".
A handsome young man, in September 2011, he settled down in life and married a wealthy Karchi businessman's daughter, Saniya Shaikh, who helps out in her family businesses in Pakistan and Britain.
Earlier, Iqbal Kaskar had revealed that Dawood is in excellent health and living in Karachi under the protective eyes of the Pakistani agencies, dismissing all speculation on his physical well-being that keeps floating occasionally.
The investigators are hopeful that in the coming days, he may reveal more information about the Godfather's family imbroglios and provide clues to the future of his activities.
