Nizam Sialvi bids farewell to politics


LAHORE: Pir Hameeduddin Sialvi’s nephew MPA Nizamuddin Sialvi announced on Thursday that he was bidding farewell to politics.

In a statement, he claimed that someone had provoked Pir Hameeduddin Sialvi’s supporters to stage a sit-in and had facilitated them. He further said that his uncle, the custodian of Sial Sharif’s shrine, would be the deciding authority on the future their clan’s politics.

According to sources, the primary reason behind this decision was Nizamuddin’s personal differences with Pir Sialvi’s son Qasim Sialvi.

Earlier on Tuesday, he claimed that some powers were conspiring against the elected democratic government.

Recently, in an interview, he claimed that he too was offered money for a similar sit-in because the rallies had proved to be unsuccessful in fulfilling the real goal of those powers. He further claimed that those powers were also using religion as a tool for their personal gains.
