Ajmer dargah chief won't welcome Paki PM

GOI itself should have conveyed
to the "Land of the Pure" (Paki) PM that his "NaPaak" (impure) presence is unwelcome on Indian soil, particularly in view of
the most recent atrocities.

Nevertheless, this symbolic gesture by the Islamic shrine's official - is laudable and such thinking on the part of Indian Muslims needs to be encouraged.

AJMER: Pakistan Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf's trip here on Friday has hit a sour note with the Ajmer Sharif spiritual head saying he will boycott the visit in protest against the recent brutal killing and beheading of Indian soldiers by the Pakistani army.

"I will not welcome the Pakistani Prime Minister during his visit here in protest against the beheading and killing of Indian soldiers by Pakistani army on line of control (LoC). The incident hurt Indians but their (Pakistan) government is not understanding our sentiments so I took the decision," Ajmer Sharif Dargah Diwan, Zainul Abedin Ali Khan told reporters here on Friday.

The Ajmer Sharif spiritual head said, "The incident of beheading and brutal killing of Indian soliders was highly condemnable and has hurt Indians. It is not only violation of human rights but is also against the Islamic law," Khan said.

"Pakistan is killing our innocent people by carrying out terror activities and does not take positive action despite the Government of India's official protests," he said.

"It would have been a new start of good relations between both the nations had the Pak PM before arriving for the Ziyarat handed over the head of the Indian soldier with full honour ... alongwith an apology to all the Indians and the families of the martyrs," he said.
