"After Monday's violent protests against my visit, I thought I should spend some time with our great apostles of peace," Kasuri told media yesterday.

"I met followers of Mahatma Gandhi at his Mani Bhavan former home. Gandhi's indefinite fast to get Pakistan its monetary dues from India is not known in Pakistan. Then I visited the Jinnah House, and it broke my heart to see it in disuse and disrepair when it could have easily become Pakistan's consulate in Mumbai,” he added.

Kasuri's meeting with Dilip Kumar was the highlight of his last day in Mumbai. “His (Dilip Kumar) wife Saira Banu told me that Dilip Saahab had been twice on secret missions to Pakis­tan. He was flown to Islama­bad by the Indian government in special aircraft. I believe one of the visits took place during the Zia ul Haq period. The other was more recent," Former Pakistan foreign minister mentioned.
