With her death, an era of Pakistani dramas comes to its end.

Many fans, colleagues, and Urdu drama lovers took to social media to express their grief and extend prayers for the departed soul.

There were not just the above random messages, many of the Pakistani politicians are also mourning Haseena Moin’s death.

Faisal Javed Khan, Senator PTI -Chairman Standing Committee on Info Broadcasting, in his tweet said: “Saddened to hear of the loss of our great writer Haseena Moin Sehba! (PTI) We grew up watching her spectacular serials like Dhoop Kinaray, Aahat, Ankahi, Tanhaiyaan, Kasak, Parosi & many more. She was my late mother’s favorite writer. May ALLAH rest her soul in peace. Ameen.”
