New Delhi: On the eve of Pakistan Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf’s India visit, the Diwan of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti shrine in Ajmer- Zainul Abedin Ali Khan – has opposed the visit in protest of the beheading of two Indian soldiers along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir earlier this year, Indian media reports.
Abedin, while talking to Headlines Today, said that being the head of the popular shrine he would boycott the Pakistani prime minister when he pays reverence to dargah on his visit on Saturday.
He asked if the Pakistani prime minister was a true follower of Islam given that the way minorities and even Muslims are slaughtered in the neighbouring country. He said the Pakistani government’s “hands are soaked in blood”.
External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid has announced that he would host a lunch in the honour of Pakistani prime minister in Jaipur. He has, however, said that no “substantive talks” were expected.
