Maulana Sami-ul-Haq was director of madrassa Darul Uloom Haqqania in Nowshera distrcit of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province of Pakistan which was a breeding ground for many top Taliban leaders including Mullah Omar.

Samiul Haq was now the chancellor of Darul Uloom Haqqania, a Deobandi Islamic seminary which is the alma mater of many prominent Taliban members.

However, initial reports had said that Haq had been shot.

Haq's killing has come when religio-political parties in Pakistan are protesting on the streets against the Supreme Court's decision to acquit Asia Bibi.

Prime Minister Imran Khan's party had sought to work closely with him to implement various reforms and mainstream madrassah education. Khan had been criticized for supporting Haq, including donating funds to the Haqqania seminary when he was head of a provincial government.
