SARGODHA: Senior PML-N leader Zaeem Qadri said on Tuesday that if spiritual leader Hameed-ud-Din Sialvi told him to resign, he would comply with his demand.
Speaking to SAMAA TV, the PML-N representative said that Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah would come to Sial Sharif and provide his clarification to ward off reservations with Hameed-ud-Din Sialvi.
"It is an honour for him to come here and I will also come with him," he said.
In response to a question, Zaeem Qadri said that if Sialvi told him to resign, he would comply.
"Yes, I am bound to follow him," he said. "But you do not understand--the main issue is not related to the resignation," he added.
TLYR leader Dr Asif Jilani on Tuesday said that Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah's resignation was more important than Zahid Hamid's.
While speaking to SAMAA TV, he wondered why those who were involved in the Faizabad sit-in had not made it a part of the negotiations between the government and the religious parties' protesters.
Rana Sanaullah had held a press conference last month to clarify his stance on the remarks that he had made regarding Ahmadis.
Sanaullah had said that whosoever did not believe in the Finality of Prophethood of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) was not a Muslim.
The Punjab law minister had further said that the law guaranteed rights of all minorities.
“Belief in the Finality of Prophethood is an integral part of our faith,” he had said.
