Nizamuddin Dargah head priest’s son pleads for his father’s release went missing in Pakistan

As the mystery over missing of Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah head priest in Pakistan continues, the son has made an appeal for the release of his father.

Sajid Ali Nizami said: “We have this information that he (Syed) is in Karachi. Our relatives went to the airport to receive them but he never came out. They directed them to send my father to Karachi alone. But then he never came out of the airport.

“Whoever has him, we just want to tell them we are not involved in any activity. We are sufi people. We belong to Hazrat Nizamuddin, we are staying here for the last 700 years. We want him to be released as soon as possible.”

In his interaction with reporters on Friday, he said his father Syed Asif Nizami (80) went missing at Karachi Airport while few others, including Nazim Nizami, who were travelling with him, were detained at Lahore.

Syed Afsar Ali Nizami, in-charge of the Dargah Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya, said the family has not received any information about his father’s whereabouts. It was on Thursday when reports had surfaced about the missing of the head priest.

The issue has been taken up by the Pakistan Government also.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said the Indian government has taken up the matter with Pakistan.
