ISLAMABAD: Renowned musician Ali Noor, frontman of the popular rock band ‘Noori’, has been admitted to the hospital in critical condition and is in urgent need of a liver donor reportedly.
On Tuesday, Ali Noor’s cousin and fellow musician Rakae Jamil updated a social media post appealing for donors within the next 48 hours in Islamabad revealing that the singer has been diagnosed with acute liver failure.
The ‘Manwa Re’ singer’s family further requested for prayers for him.
“Need a Liver Donor for Ali Noor in the next 48 hours. Blood groups..Only B +ve, B -ve, O +ve O -ve. In Islamabad…please it’s urgent!” the band Noori posted on its official Facebook page.
Reports claim that the singer was previously suffering from Hepatitis which worsened into liver damage during treatment, for which a liver donor from the age of 18 to 45 is required.
A large number of Ali Noor’s colleagues have since then come forth urging people to help.
Brother Ali Hamza also took to Facebook asking fans not to panic.
He wrote: “Guys!! No need to panic as yet. Inshallah Ali Noor will be back on his feet very soon!,” Hamza wrote on Facebook. “He has suffered an intense bout of Hepatitis A. There is possibility of liver damage, but he’s being monitored by the best in the business.”
He dispelled the notion related to the need of a liver donor stating:
“THERE IS NO NEED FOR A BLOOD DONOR, AND THE ONLY LIVER DONOR IF NEED BE WOULD BE A FAMILY MEMBER! ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! YOUR PRAYERS ARE ALL WE NEED!! LOTS OF LOVE AND RESPECT FROM OUR FAMILY!”
