Notable relatives of Nabi Raza Mir (a.k.a. Nabi Raza Abidi)
Nabi Raza Mir (a.k.a. Nabi Raza Abidi) insists that he is a "Syed." While no one challenges Nabi Mir's membership in the South Asian "Syed" caste, there is extensive material evidence generated by Nabi Mir's troubled second son, Ali Mir (a.k.a. Ishraq Abidi), that make the alleged lineage of the Mirs and linkage to the Imam Ali ibn Abi Taleb, PBUH&HF, seriously disputable. Nevertheless, should the claims of Nabi Mir turn out to be true, he may also claim the high profile "Syeds" discussed below as his blood relatives.

Akl Hashem of the South Lebanon Army
The government of Lebanon considers Akl Hashem a traitor and a disgrace to the Lebanese nation due to his extensive and high level service in the disbanded South Lebanon Army (SLA) and collaboration with the government, intelligence services, and armed forces of the Jewish State. Lebanon and Israel are technically still at war with each other.

Ali Mir: Like father like son
Of course, an undoubtable relative of Nabi Mir is his very own son, Ali R. Mir (a.k.a. Ishraq Abidi) who gave sincere testimonies about the true thinking of his father and his followers:
Notes and references
- Syed (also spelled as Sayyed, Seyyed, Siyyid, etc.) is Arabic for master or lord (Arabic: سيّد). In general, it is an honorific that is used to mean Mister. As such, in the Arab World, formal letters are addressed to Sayyed so and so for men and Sayyeda so and so for women. Deeply devout Muslims who are true descendants of Prophet Muhammad, PBUH&HF, especially clerics, may be addressed with the Sayyed honorific. The Muslims of South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan), especially the Shiites, adopted the caste system of their Hindu ancestors and neighbors and created a privileged "Syed" class, splitting the community into two distinguished types (Syeds and non-Syeds). In general, the members of the Syed class in the Indian Subcontinent tend to engage in consanguineous marriages (marriage among close relatives) to maintain their class-based privileges. In some remote backward villages, such as Alipur, Karnataka, India, this led to very high incidences of birth defects.
- Akl Hashem (Arabic: عقل هاشم) was the second in command in the Israeli-founded, -funded, and -trained South Lebanon Army (SLA). Hashem was assassinated by the Lebanese terrorist organization Hezbollah. The surname of Hashem is also spelled as Hashim, Hachem and Hachim while his first name is also spelled as Aql.
- Hezbollah (Arabic: "حزب الله"; a.k.a. Hizbullah; a.k.a. Hizballah) is an international terrorist organization based in Lebanon. Hezbollah is a sectarian entity, which follows and promotes the Khomeinist version of Shia Islam. Hezbollah has operatives stationed throughout the world, including the United States and Europe.
