The wife of the last ruler of Shia princely state Khairpur and an eminent philanthropist passed away in Karachi. The great lady was the daughter of the prominent Shia Islamic scholar Allama Rasheed Turabi.

Now a district in Sindh province, Khairpur had been a Shia princely state prior to its accession to Pakistan.
Alya Talpur, wife of Prince Mir Ali Murad Khan Talpur II, was admitted to Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) around three weeks ago. She had been on dialysis for the past eight to 10 years.
She leaves behind two sons, Mir Abbas Raza Khan Talpur and Mir Mehdi Raza Khan Talpur, and a daughter to mourn her death.
Alya Talpur had been active in organising religious gatherings at the famous ‘Faiz Mahal,’ located on Kot Diji's hillside.
She was also involved in philanthropy and the promotion of education among boys and girls in Khairpur, recalled writer and journalist, Mumtaz Bukhari, who has written a drama on the royal family and produced a documentary on the same.
The late princess provided a school near her Kot Diji residence and received a rent of only one rupee ‘just to maintain her ownership’ of the school building, added Bukhari.
