BJP MP Subramanian Swamy on Monday said the two Indian clerics who returned to Delhi after reportedly going missing in Pakistan were involved in anti-India activities.
Syed Asif Ali Nizami and his nephew Nazim Ali Nizami, both clerics of Delhi’s Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah, flew back to the Indian capital.

While Nazim Ali has trashed Pakistani media claims that they had links with the Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), Swamy claimed to have “independent information” that they were working against New Delhi’s interests.
“They are lying … to get sympathy,” Swamy told the media. “We have independent information that these two were working against the country.”
Nazim Ali said they had gone to Pakistan to meet Asif Ali Nizami’s sister in Karachi.
