Thousands of people attended the funeral of Maulana Sami ul-Haq, a prominent Pakistani cleric known as the "father of the Afghan Taliban," in Pakistan's northwestern city of Noshera on November 3. Sami ul-Haq was killed in a knife attack at his home in the city of Rawalpindi, near the capital, Islamabad, on November 2. For decades, Sami ul-Haq ran an Islamic school that educated several key Taliban leaders. The funeral was held under tight security.
