Today, Thursday (# Assassination_Yousef_Ahmad_Deedat), communication platforms are issued in several countries after conflicting media reports spread about the shooting of the son of the late Islamic preacher Ahmed Deedat.
The family of the South African activist Yusif Deedat (65 years) confirmed on Wednesday evening that he is in critical condition inside a local hospital, after an unknown person shot him outside a court in South Africa, then he escaped.
Despite the seriousness of his injury, his family is still hoping that he will recover, and has demanded that his family respect her privacy in this difficult time.
Local media reported that Deedat was shot in the head while he was walking with his wife towards the Verulam court on the outskirts of Durban.
Initially, there were conflicting reports about the possibility of his death after being shot, but local media confirmed that he was taken to the hospital alive, and the police said they were still investigating to find out the reasons for the attack.
Youssef Deedat is considered one of the Muslim preachers and a prominent figure in the social circles in his country. His father, Sheikh Ahmed Deedat, who died in 2005, was a prominent Islamic preacher.
