Shiv Sena felicitates Ajmer Sharif head for opposing Pak PM's visit
Ajmer, Mar 13 : The right-wing Shiv Sena on Wednesday felicitated Syed Zainul Abedin Ali Khan, the spiritual head of the shrine of revered Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti in Ajmer for opposing Pakistan Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf's recent visit.
Raja Ashraf and his family paid homage at the shrine last Saturday.
Earlier, Khan had said that he would not assist Ashraf during prayers in protest over the mutilation of bodies of two Indian soldiers on the LIne of Control (LoC) in January this year.
Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut honoured Khan and presented him with a sword and a shawl.
Raut said:"I feel that our Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray has sent us to express gratitude and to specially thank him."
Uddhav Thackeray had two days ago said that Khan should be given the Bharat Ratna for his gesture.
