Naseer Soomro, Once Pakistan’s Tallest Man, Hospitalized Due to Illness

Naseer Soomro

Naseer Soomro, one of the world’s tallest men, has recently been admitted to a hospital in Karachi as his health took a sudden turn for the worse.

At 59 years old, Soomro, hailing from the Shikarpur district of Sindh, Pakistan, has long grappled with declining health, marked by respiratory issues and joint problems.

Despite the pressing need for medical intervention, Soomro has faced significant obstacles, particularly financial constraints, preventing him from undergoing necessary surgeries.

His family’s appeals for financial assistance to cover medical expenses have largely gone unanswered, exacerbating Soomro’s plight. Despite previous instances of receiving medical attention, the lack of sustained support has left him in a precarious state.

His nephew, deeply concerned about Soomro’s deteriorating condition, has urgently called upon the government to intervene and facilitate the life-saving treatment he desperately requires.

Soomro’s employment with Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has not shielded him from the challenges posed by his health struggles. Standing at an impressive 7 feet 9 inches, Soomro was once hailed as the tallest man in Pakistan.

However, subsequent reports have noted the emergence of a new tallest individual, Zia Rashid, towering at 8 feet tall, relegating Somroo to the position of a former record-holder.

As Soomro battles against the odds for his health, his situation underscores broader issues of accessibility to healthcare and support systems for individuals grappling with severe medical conditions, particularly those from financially disadvantaged backgrounds.

The urgency of his case serves as a poignant reminder of the imperative for collective action to ensure that all individuals, regardless of their stature or financial means, receive the medical care they require to lead healthy and dignified lives.
