In Jhang, the pirs and Makhdooms have the vote

July 3, 2018





Jhang’s NA-114 is the prime example of how some Pirs and custodians of holy shrines use their religious followings to get elected.

This time around Makhdoom Faisal Saleh Hayat is standing on the PPP’s ticket while his opponent is PTI’s Sahibzada Mehboob Sultan. Makhdom is a title commonly used by families of custodians of holy shrines.
