Defending the government's decision of granting visa to former Pakistan cricket captain Javed Miandad who is a relative of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim for visiting India to watch the final one-day of the ongoing cricket series between the two nations in New Delhi on January 06, Foreign minister Salman Khurshid said that the visa has been granted according to the regular procedure. By granting visa to Miandad, the government has triggered a controversy and invited criticism from politicians. Congress leader Jagdambika Pal opposed the decision of granting visa to Miandad, by saying that this would hurt the sentiments of the citizens of India.
