Sikh pilgrims meet Sharif

Lahore: Deposed Pakistan Premier Nawaz Sharif had some unexpected visitors at his home here — Indian Sikh pilgrims from his ancestral village near Amritsar.

The Sikhs from Jati Umra village, who are in Pakistan to participate in celebrations marking the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, made a beeline for Mr. Sharif’s home in the Model Town area on Monday.

Some of them told the PML(N) chief, who returned to Pakistan from Saudi Arabia on Sunday, that their joy had doubled after learning that he was back home safely from exile. Mr. Sharif’s father, Mian Sharif Mohammad, had migrated to Pakistan at the time of Partition in 1947 from Jati Umra, a village near Amritsar. — PTI
