Hyderabad: Renowned Urdu writer and satirist Mujtaba Hussain, who had returned the Padma Shri award to the union government last year, passed away at his residence here on Wednesday after a cardiac arrest, family sources said.

He was 87 and is survived by his wife, two sons and two daughters.

The funeral was held in the evening.

Hussain was awarded the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilan award, in 2007 for his contribution to Urdu literature.

However, he had returned it in December last year, saying he was not happy with the situation in the country.

"...The democratic set up built by Gandhiji, Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Patel, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, Ambedkar, it is being broken...

The voice of many people is being shut, many are being killed and poor people are not in a position to laugh," he had told PTI.
