LAHORE – Pir Mahfooz Shah Mushahdi has said that Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) has cancelled the basic membership of Sahbizada Fazal Karim and Haji Hanif Tayyab for entering into an electoral alliance with PML-Q.

In SIC’s Shoora meeting, the component parties accused Sahibzada Fazal Karim and Hanif Tayyab of striking a deal with the PML-Q for contesting elections from their respective constituencies. The Shoora appointed Mushahdi as the Council’s Chairman.

Mushahdi said that Sahibzada Fazal Karim was elected as MNA on the PML-N ticket but later deserted the party without resigning from the seat. He alleged that before splitting with the PML-N, Karim also grabbed a precious plot worth billions of rupees.

He said Karim had promised to resign in the past at the time when Musharraf-led government announced to get the bill on women representation passed from Assembly but he did not resign. He warned both Karim and Tayyab to avoid using name of SIC ,otherwise, they will take necessary legal action against them.
