Nizamuddin clerics arriving on Monday: Sushma Swaraj
New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Sunday said that the two Indian clerics, who had gone missing in Pakistan, will be back in India on Monday.
In a tweet, Sushma Swaraj said: “I just spoke to Syed Nazim Ali Nizami in Karachi. He told me that they are safe and will be back in Delhi tomorrow.”
The two clerics of Delhi’s Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah were reportedly found in a remote village of Sindh province with no mobile connectivity.
Syed Asif Ali Nizami, 80, and his nephew Nazim Ali Nizami, were visiting Data Darbar in Lahore when they went missing on Wednesday.
Local media reports, citing unnamed sources, said both clerics were traced in Karachi’s Nazimabad neighbourhood, where they had apparently gone to “(rural) Sindh to meet their followers, where there was no communication network”, which is why they could not inform their relatives about their whereabouts.
