Kolkata, July 17. (PTI): Renowned spiritual guru and founder of the Art of Living Foundation ‘Sri Sri’ Ravi Shankar, would undertake a four-day peace mission to Pakistan from July 19 during which he is likely to meet President Gen. Pervez Musharraf, and Prime Minister Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain.

According to a statement by the Foundation here, Ravi Shankar, the first spiritual master from India to visit Pakistan on such a mission, would hold informal meetings with political and business leaders, religious heads and social activists in Karachi and Islamabad.

“He is also likely to meet President Gen. Pervez Musharraf, Prime Minister Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, the Governor of Sind and the Mayor of Karachi,” it said.

Naeem Zamindar, a member of the Foundation’s Pakistan chapter, said in the statement that meetings were also planned with Pakistan-based leaders of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) and other Islamic organisations.

He said that “several non-governmental organisations, peace activists and eminent individuals in Pakistan have shown interest in his visit.”

Ravi Shankar would give public talks and conduct meditation sessions in Karachi and Islamabad.

A public ‘satsang’ would be held in Karachi on July 20, Zamindar said adding “also on the agenda is a meeting with the local Hindu community in Taxila”.
