PM Nawaz wears turban gifted by Modi at granddaughter’s wedding

LAHORE: Social media and TV news channels were abuzz with pictures showing Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif wearing pink turban at his granddaughter’s wedding last week: to everyone’s surprise, the turban was gifted by Indian PM Narendra Modi.

“Wearing the gifted turban of Mr Modi itself shows that Mr Sharif’s sincere intention towards the neighbouring country. Besides, it also demonstrates that Mr Sharif values the gift of Mr Modi,” the Times of India citing a Pakistani official in its report said.

Mehrun Nisa, daughter of Maryam Nawaz, married Raheel Munir, son of well known industrialist Chaudhry Munir, who was the first to shake hands with Modi when he got off the car at Jati Umrah outside Lahore on Friday evening.

Modi had congratulated Sharif on the wedding of his granddaughter and also presented him gifts.

On Sunday evening, around 2,000 guests attended the Valima ceremony of the couple. Some VVIP guests had also come from Saudi Arabia for the occasion.

Both the groom and the bride have studied at the London School of Economics.
