Maulana Abdul Sattar Khan Niazi’s first statement was in favor of Yusuf Kazzab because he was un aware of the full details and the very next day when he was approached as to why he has given such statement against murtid Yusuf Kazzab, he clarify his position and said that he was shown only one side of the story by Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid.

The latest that has reached us is as follows:
“It is a lie that Molana Abdus Sattar Niazi supported Yousf Kazzab.”
A comrade of ours went to mulana Niazais students and they told him the real story. When Molana Abdus Sattar Niazi was very sick,in his last days Yusuf Kazzab went to him, grabbed his feet and started crying.
He told him that he was a true lover and slave of prophet(SA), and that he didnt declare prophecy…in return molana replied“ a bench of ulema should be made to decide your matter…if you are masoom than you will be free and if you are proven wrong than you will be executed…(he didn’t say that yusuf didn’t declare prophecy)…”
After that Yusuf altered this news and told the press as Zaid Hamid says it. The next day Molana Abdus Aattar Niazi condemned it and did a press conference that Yusuf Ali lied about him.
