Pakistani police and the family of prominent cleric Maulana Samiul Haq, who also was known as the "father of the Taliban", say he was killed outside his home in Rawalpindi.

"Unidentified attackers killed Maulana Sami ul Haq inside his residence", Umar Jahangir, a senior government official, told state-run Pakistan television.

He was shifted to local hospital for medical assistance where he succumbed to his wounds.

Yousaf Shah, Haq's spokesman, said the attacker's identity and their motive were not known.

"He was resting in his room". On his return, he saw that Maulana Sami was lying in his bed in a pool of bed.

The transit coincides with a period of rising tension between Taiwan and China, which considers the island one of its provinces. Despite this, Washington has kept informal relations with the island nation after severing diplomatic ties with it in 1979.

Samiul Haq had close ties with the Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar. "He had been ill, and was a heart patient", said Hamidullah.

Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is now in China for an official visit, said the country had been deprived of an important religious leader whose services would always be remembered.

In a statement, the prime minister directed the authorities concerned to investigate the incident and bring the perpetrators to justice.

Earlier reports had emerged suggesting that Maulana Samiul Haq was shot dead by gunmen riding a motorcycle.

However, other reports from Pakistan said Sami ul Haq was stabbed to death.
