AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Indian Shia cleric Maulana Kalbe Sadiq was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of Era’s Lucknow Medical College (ELMC) on Tuesday evening after his health deteriorated.
The 81-year-old cleric was diagnosed with severe pneumonia and sepsis, which had left him unconscious and under critical care. His Covid-19 report had come negative.
“He had stopped taking food around a month back which caused him extreme weakness. Two weeks back, a food pipe was put in him for feeding. Immuno-compromised with cancer and at his age having pneumonia is very troublesome, but our team is doing the best possible,” said ELMC principal Dr MMA Faridi.
“He was experiencing difficulty in breathing. As his blood pressure and oxygen levels were also constantly falling he was shifted to the ICU. He is in a critical state and is unconscious,” said Maulana Sadiq’s son Kalbe Sibtain Noori.
The cleric, who has always stressed on communal amity and education, had been diagnosed with intestinal cancer three years ago and was operated upon in Delhi. However, his second surgery could not take place as he was extremely weak.
