Ajmer(PTI): Ajmer Dargah Deewan Zainul Abedin Ali Khan claimed on Monday that he is the ‘Sajjada Nashin’ (successor) and not the one who met Prime Minister Narendra Modi as part of a delegation as mentioned in a PMO statement.
Khan claimed that he was the official successor of Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti and did not attend the meeting.
“The person who met the Prime Minister as Sajjada Nashin is not the Sajjada Nashin of Ajmer Sharif. The Sajjada Nashin Deewan Zainul Abedin Ali Khan was in Ajmer on Monday and if anyone has misused this title and designation, he has not only misled the PM but it is also a breach in PM’s security,” a statement from the office of Ajmer Dargah Deewan said.
The PMO statement mentions ‘Syed Sultan-Ul-Hasan Chishti Misbahi (Sajjada Nashin of Ajmer Sharif)’ as one of the Muslim leaders who called on the PM earlier in the day. Misbahi could not be contacted.
