NEW DELHI: India has asked the Pakistan government to return two senior Indian clerics who have been missing from Lahore since Wednesday. Asif Nizami and his brother Nazim Nizami, senior clerics from Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya dargah in New Delhi were travelling in Pakistan on a religious tour, but are believed to have gone missing from Lahore.

The Indian high commissioner in Islamabad has lodged a strong complaint with the foreign ministry in Islamabad on Thursday evening. But sources here suspect the ISI, Pakistan’s all-pervasive deep state, may have “picked them up” for reasons that are still unclear. The abduction of the Sufi clerics will be taken very seriously by India, sources said.

There is a frequent exchange between the “khadims” of Hazrat Nizamuddin dargah in India and Data Darbar in Lahore.

On the other hand, Sufis have come under attack from Islamist jihadis in Pakistan in recent months, with the Sehwan attack being the worst. But security sources here believe the Nizami brothers have not been taken by jihadi elements.
