May 31, 2005

L K Advani arrived in Islamabad on Monday.

The Bharatiya Janata Party president was accompanied on this historic visit by his wife Kamala and daughter Pratibha.

Advani, who was born in Karachi, is undertaking his second trip to Pakistan in 26 years. He last visited Pakistan as information and broadcasting minister in the Morarji Desai Cabinet.

The Indian leader will meet political leaders including President Pervez Musharraf. He will also visit his ancestral home in Karachi and St Patrick's school, where he and, coincidentally, Musharraf studied.
