Azharuddin Broken, but Brave at Son's Funeral


Daijiworld Media Network

Hyderabad, Sep 17: Soon after news broke out about former cricketer-turned-politician Mohammed Azharuddin’s son Mohammed Ayazuddin’s death on Friday September 16, family and friends gathered at the Apollo hospital here, where he was being treated. There was chaos at the hospital as people from all across the city came pouring in to offer their condolences.

As soon as the crowd began gathering outside the hospital, arrangements were made to move Ayaz’s body to Azhar's residence at Solitarie Banjara apartments on Road No 10, Banjara Hills from the rear exit of the hospital.

19-year-old Ayaz was laid to rest on Friday evening at a graveyard in Santosh Nagar after 'Namaz-e-Janaza' at the Mecca Masjid in the old city. Azharuddin and his elder son Asaduddin lifted the body for the final journey. Hundreds of mourners including Azharuddin's relatives, friends and eminent personalities of the city joined the burial procession.

Unable to control his grief Azharuddin finally burst into tears as the body was placed on a DCM Toyota. Even though he maintained a grim expression while interacting with the VIPs, Azhar broke down everytime a close relative spoke to him and all he could manage to say was “It is difficult but we have to face it.” Even in the hour of tragedy, he made it a point to personally acknowledge the presence and condolences of all those who turned up.

Chief minister Kiran Kumar Reddy, Mayor Karthika Reddy, the Alam Khan family, Jwala Gutta's mom and sister Insi, actor Rajashekhar , the Komatireddy brothers, Greater Hyderabad Mayor Banda Karthika Reddy,Tollywood couple Dr Rajasekhar and Jeevitha,  Nizamabad MP Madhu Yakshi, cricketers like Arshad Ayub, Faiyaz Baig and Kanwaljit Singh, were present to lend their support to Azhar.

Manoj Mittal, who was the coach of the Hyderabad under-16 team when Ayazuddin was selected as a third off spinner, said that it was unfortunate they could not play him in the final XI.Speaking about Ayaz, he said, "Shy and introvert. While Ayaz would wait for instructions, Asaduddin would ask when he would go for batting but he never complained. He was a decent off-spinner. The most important thing was he was very quiet like his father in his younger days," said Mittal.

Ayazuddin's coach, John Sanjay, expressed his grief saying, "We lost a very promising cricketer. He was very disciplined, a talented batsman and used to play like his father.”

Ayazuddin passed away at 11:51 am due to hypoxic encephalopathy, six days after his sports bike skidded on the outer ring road. Ayazuddin's  cousin, Ajmal-ur-Rahman (16), who was pillion riding with him, died a couple of hours after they were taken to hospital.

Among those who were present at the hospital when the formalities were being completed included Azhar's father, former wife Naureen, second wife Sangeeta.

Ayazuddin was a second-year BCom student at St Mary's College.

    Whatever happened is sad , on the other side , i strongly suggest Indian roads arent designed for speeds above 60kms . Also a superbike being driven by 19yr old which weighs about 200~250kgs & has potentials of going at high speeds shouldnt be driven by youngsters without formal training & self discipline.Its every parents responsibility to ensure that they drive under limits & know the potentials of vehicles & consequences of driving irresponsibly. Parents should always handle such demands tactfully explaining the after effects fully. My uncle , aunty & 2 kids had a similar fate in a 2 wheeler accident. I hope & pray that youngsters get some brains.

    Its really unfortunate to lose a young child in such an ignimonious way.Azhar has always been a tough man and may God give him strength and endurance to bear the pain which is almost unbearable.No weight is more for the shoulder"s of a father than the weight of coffin of his own son. May allah bless the departed soul rest in peace.

    Sports bike skidded on outer ring. Anyone can guess how rash the driving might have been. It is sad to see someone dying at young age BUT Indian youth have become so arrogant anyway..

    Indian Roads are not designed for High speed driving, even expressways are designed for maximum speed of 90 KMPH. You can easily assess while driving on expressways. You will easily found slow moving two wheelers, bullock carts & tractor trolleys are sharing the same roads & they are free to move anywhere. So my suggestion to all the parents is that, they have to understand the fact that Indian roads are not designed for high speed, if there children have thrill to speed then send them to south Africa or any other foreign country where signages are proper & traffic load on roads are less & the roads designed for high speed. The chances of accident on these roads are 90% less then in comparison with Indian roads.
