SARGODHA: Pir Hameeduddin Sialvi had a brain haemorrhage and he was shifted to a Lahore hospital on Sunday.

Mr Sialvi was going to Chiniot from Sial Sharif to participate in a Khatm-i-Nabuwat conference when he fell unconscious. He was shifted to a local private hospital. Earlier, the doctors thought Pir Sialvi had suffered from a cardiac problem but the CT scan revealed that he had a clot in brain. He was referred to Lahore where the phones of his associates did not respond. He had had a heart bypass about two years back and these days he was reportedly under stress due to differences between his son Qasim Sialvi and nephew Nizamuddin Sialvi.

Hameeduddin Sialvi remained senator from PML-N ticket and got prominence recently after a launching movement against Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah over a controversial statement by him.
