“Dr. Tabish Hazir has left us after a brave battle with cancer. The thought of life without him feels unbearable but he taught me to be strong through his living example. Grateful to god he went in peace. He spread love, comfort, and laughter in so many lives. RIP aba, your heart beats in my heart,” Imaan Mazari said.

Dr. Tabish was a famous pediatrician in Islamabad. He stayed away from the limelight despite being the husband of a famous politician Shireen Mazari and the father of a renowned lawyer, Imaan Mazari.

He actively campaigned for the eradication of polio in Pakistan. On numerous occasions, he had urged Pakistani parents to cooperate with polio administering teams and treat them with respect for contributing to this cause while endangering their lives.

Dr. Tabish was also a strong champion of mother and child health in the country. He said owing to poverty, women and children suffer more as they are unable to consume the required nutrients. He also actively promoted breastfeeding for infants while highlighting the adverse impacts of formula milk.
