‘The cool uncle’: Ali Tareen’s heartfelt tribute to Alamgir Tareen

Alamgir passed away in Lahore on Thursday

A day after Alamgir Tareen passed away in Lahore, his nephew Ali Tareen posted a heartfelt message in his memory.

“Alamgir chacha lived life on his own terms. The cool uncle, the maverick,” Ali wrote on Twitter.

“A larger than life character who was always happy to challenge convention. Whether in life, in business or in cricket,” he added.

“His sudden loss is an almost unbearable tragedy for those who knew him well. May Allah SWT bless his joyous soul.”

Ali’s father, Jahangir Tareen, was Alamgir’s elder brother. Jahangir was in a political meeting when he was informed of his brother’s demise.
