Lahore, January 25, 2018 (PPI-OT):Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif went to Aastana Aliya Sial Sharif in Sargodha today and held meeting with Sajjadanasheen Pir Hamid-ud-Din Sialvi. After the meeting, he talked with the media persons along with Pir Hamid-ud-Din Sialvi and said that agitation movement has been scrapped by Sialvi Sahib upon his request; however, peaceful Seerat-ul-Nabi (Peace Be Upon Him) and Khatam-e-Nabuwat (Peace Be Upon Him) Conferences will be held and every Muslim should take part in them. He said that finality of the Prophethood (Peace Be Upon Him) is the fundamental part of our faith and our religious belief is incomplete without it. We all have fullest and unwavering trust and faith over the finality of the Prophethood (Peace Be Upon Him).

He said that he and his family have a long-lasting relationship with the family of Sial Sharif and the religious services of Sial Sharif are unforgettable.
