Missing Indian clerics traced in Karachi
The two Indian clerics of Delhi’s Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah, who went missing in Pakistan, have been traced and have reached Karachi. This was conveyed by Pakistan’s Foreign Affairs Ministry to the Indian High Commission in Islamabad yesterday. Sources said, the two clerics – Syed Asif Nizami, the head priest of the Dargah, and his nephew Nazim Nizami – reached Karachi last evening and will leave for India tomorrow.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj also spoke to Pakistan Prime Minister’s Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz, who is in London, in this regard. http://bit.ly/Clipper28App
Media reports in Pakistan said, both clerics had been in interior Sindh where there was no communication network therefore they could not contact their relatives.
Earlier, there were reports that the two clerics were in the custody of Pakistan’s intelligence agency over their alleged links with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM). They were said to be offloaded from a Karachi-bound plane at Lahore airport on Tuesday, and taken to an undisclosed location for investigation. http://bit.ly/Clipper28App
It may be recalled that the MQM emerged as a largely ethnic party in the 1980s. It has political dominance in the southern Sindh province’s urban areas – notably in Karachi, Hyderabad, Mirpurkhas and Sukkur where a large number of Urdu-speaking people, who migrated to Pakistan from India during 1947’s partition, reside.
