Kazi Hasni is a Pakistani-American who moved to the United States to ensure a better life for his children.
Kazi was married to Safia and had two children with her, Dani and Meena. Kazi had strong Islamic beliefs. Kazi and his wife previously owned a restaurant called Jewel of Punjab, but they had to close it after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11. Kazi and his family then founded a grocery store and lived in a small apartment above it. Dani had to drop out of college to help with the business.
Kazi had arranged a marriage for his daughter with Tariq Amir, but she refused to marry him because she was in love with Rudy Ventano instead. Because of her love for Rudy, she was killed. After her murder, Rudy became the prime suspect for Detectives Logan and Wheeler because Meena was seven weeks pregnant and she wanted an abortion while Rudy didn't. Rudy visited the Hasnis to tell themt he wasn't the one to blame for her murder. Instead, Kazi flew into a rage and fatally shot Rudy during a struggle.
Kazi was sent to Rikers Island, but it turned out that he had killed the wrong man. When he realized his mistake, Kazi wanted to take the blame for Meena's murder, but it soon became clear that Dani was the real killer. (CI: "World's Fair")
