Govt allows Jaswant Singh to visit Pakistan

The Indian government has allowed expelled Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Jaswant Singh to visit Pakistan on September 26 to promote his book “Jinnah: India, Partition and Independence”, a media report said.

He will arrive in Karachi on September 26, before heading to the Pakistani capital the next day to attend a launching ceremony of the book at the Islamabad Press Club.

The former Indian external affairs minister was expelled from the BJP for praising Pakistan founder Mohammed Ali Jinnah in his book “Jinnah: India, Partition, Independence”.

He is visiting the country on the invitation of Muhammad Yousuf, a prominent Pakistani publisher and owner of Mr Books (bookstore) in Islamabad.

The Indian government granted security clearance to Jaswant Singh on Saturday after several attempts and now he would reach Pakistan on September 26, the Online news agency reported.
