Pakistan Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf's trip here tomorrow has hit a sour note with the Ajmer Sharif spiritual head saying he will boycott the visit in protest against the recent brutal killing and beheading of Indian soldiers by the Pakistani Army.
"I will not welcome the Pakistani Prime Minister during his visit here in protest against the beheading of Indian soldier by Pakistani Army on LoC. The incident hurt Indians but their (Pakistan) government is not understanding our sentiments so I took the decision," he told reporters here.
Traditionally, when a nation head goes to the dargah, he is welcomed by the spiritual head - the descendent of the Sufi saint Khawaja Moinuddin Chisti.
"The incident of beheading and brutal killing was highly condemnable and has hurt Indians. It is not only violation of human rights but is also against the Islamic law," he said.
Ashraf is arriving here tomorrow to offer prayers at the holy shrine along with his family members after being hosted to a lunch in Jaipur by External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid.
