ISLAMABAD: In wake of the friction between a religious group and the ruling party, as many as 14 federal and provincial lawmakers affiliated with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz from Punjab have submitted their resignation to Pir Hameed ud Din Sialvi.
Speaking in Geo News’ show, Capital Talk, Member National Assembly Sheikh Muhammad Akram confirmed that 14 legislators have submitted their resignations to Sargodha-based Pir Sialvi and have given him authority to make any decision on their behalf.
“We will not compromise on Khatam-e-Nabbuwat laws and follow whatever decision Pir Silavi will make,” Akram informed.
Punjab Minister Auqaf & Religious Affairs Zaeem Qadri, who was also present on the show, said that he will immediately meet Pir Sialvi in a bid to resolve his reservations.
Meanwhile, Nisar Jutt, another federal legislator from Faisalabad, refuted the news of his resignation and said that there is no truth in any growing demand within the party for the resignation of provincial law minister Rana Sanaullah.
