Jabbar was a known activist in the state, who fought for the rights of the victims of the tragedy.
 
He started the Bhopal Gas Peedit Mahila Udyog Sangathan, one of the organisations championing the cause of victims of the gas leak incident.
 
Jabbar was admitted to the hospital a few days ago. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath had announced the best possible medical treatment for the activist who was to be shifted to Mumbai for further treatment.
