According to reports, she was battling cancer. Her funeral will be held at her residence in North Nazimabad after Asr prayers.

The iconic writer will be remembered for her great contributions to the industry. She will remain as one of the most prolific dramatists in Pakistani history. She is best known for classics such as Dhoop Kinare, Tanhaiyaan and Anakhi. Haseena Moini has received a Pride of Performance award for her services towards performing arts in Pakistan.
