Soon after the legendary actor’s death, a family feud came to light when his daughter Rahma Ali accused step mother actress Rabia Naureen of refraining them from seeing him for the last time and details about his funeral. Rahma had been continuously updating fans and media about father’s illness.

“I really want to tell the world that Rabia Naureen, my father’s second wife, has left the hospital with his body, we don’t know where to go, we don’t even know where he lives. She even said not to visit her home for father’s last rituals,” Rahma Ali said in a video released late Thursday, which she later on removed.

She said that her mother, sister and aunt were at the hospital when her father passed away. She claimed that Naureen had told her aunt that “ye auratein [these ladies] can’t come to her residence to mourn.”
