New Delhi, March 23, 2017: The two clerics of Hazrat Nizzamudin Dargah, Syed Asif Nizami and his nephew Nizam Nizami are reported to have returned to New Delhi.

The two clerics reportedly went missing in Pakistan last week and were alleged to have been working for R&AW and being a part of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) movement by Pakistani newspaper reports in the Urdu Daily.

Upon their return to the national capital the duo went for a seating with Mrs. Sushma Swaraj, the External Affairs Minister. During the entire rendezvous, they allegedly remained tight and shut regarding the entire situation they faced in the neighbouring country.

When asked they confessed to the fact that they were taken to a far quite place with their eyes covered and were offered tea and biscuits along with a hot dose of suspicious questions.

They accepted the fact that they were not forced or violently treated. Despite the whole incident Nizami suggested the media that he will still be visiting Pakistan again as it was a rather refreshing experience.

They also told the media that they went to visit the shrine of Baba Farid Ganj to offer their prayers and were treated and escorted as VIPs. When further questioned the duo refused to go ahead and bend deep into the pool of details.

All they ended up was with a note of thanks to the governments of India and Pakistan for returning them back home.

According to the Times of India, the duo returned back to the national capital on Monday and after landing, the clerics blamed the Pakistani newspaper for the whole chaos.
Nazim Ali rejected the Pakistani media reports by adding that they were in “interior Sindh where there was no communication network“.

Further when they were questioned as to why they were “interrogated“, they stated that they were asked about their visa and other immigration details for some special purposes.
The Duo arrived at the Dargah later in the evening and were warmly welcomed with open arms.
