The head of Delhi’s Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah Syed Asif Ali Nizami and another Indian Sufi priest Nizam Ali Nizami are missing in Pakistan. Indian External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj said this morning that the government has taken the matter up with Islamabad, Pakistan.

Sushma Swaraj tweeted:

They have been missing since Wednesday evening and were last seen at Daata Darbar Sufi shrine in Lahore.
According to reports, while Nizam went missing from Lahore airport, Asif went missing after arriving at the Karachi airport. They had gone to visit the Shrine in Lahore and were supposed to catch a flight from Lahore to Karachi yesterday. As per their families, while Asif was allowed to go Karachi but at the same time, Nizam was stopped at the Lahore airport because of his incomplete travel papers.

Asif’s son Sazid Ali Nizam said, “They lost contact with them from Karachi airport.” He also said,”On March 14, they offered another ‘Chadar’ at Daata Darbar sufi shrine in Lahore. The next day, they reached Lahore airport to take a flight to Karachi at 4:30pm. At the Lahore airport, my cousin was stopped by authorities to clear some documentation and my father was asked to board the flight.

He also stated that their phones have been power off since then. He said, “We have no information as such. We have been putting up our landline number in advertisements. ”

They both had visited Karachi to meet their relatives before travelling to Lahore.
