Pakistani Super star Musician Ali Noor, the lead vocalist of popular Pakistani rock band Noori, is critically ill and in urgent need of a liver donor.
Ali Noor's family and friends confirmed on Wednesday that the singer was admitted at a private hospital in Islamabad and urgently required a liver transplant within the next 48 hours.
"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.
According to reports, the singer had contracted Hepatitis which deteriorated into liver damage during treatment. He is said to be in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital at the moment.
Family and friends of the musician added that Ali Noor requires a liver donor within 18 to 45 years of age.
Later Ali Hamza, brother of Noor, posted on Facebook asking fans not to panic.
"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 added, "As for needing a liver donor, the doctors are saying that we do need to have people on standby, but they can only be family members — our local law does not allow outside of family donors."
Hamza continued, "But more than anything, most probably, Inshallah Inshallah we won’t have to go that route. We are already seeing improvement in Ali Noor’s condition."
"What we need are prayers from everyone that Ali Noor recovers in full form! I can’t thank you enough for all your support!! God Bless You! It’s very important at this stage that we sit at our respective abodes and just pray for Ali Noor’s recovery," he said.
"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!," Hamza added.
