Lahore: Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Sunday wore the pink Rajasthani turban gifted to him by his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi for his granddaughter Mehrun Nisa's wedding. Mehrun Nisa married to Raheel Munir, son of well-known industrialist Chaudhry Munir.

Quoting a source at Mr Sharif's Jati Umrah residence, an Indian news agency reported that the Pakistani Prime Minister had donned the "Indian Rajasthani pink turban" gifted to him by PM Modi during his alleged surprise visit on Friday i.e. December 25 on former's 66th birthday.

"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 PML-N source said.

Mehrun Nisa, Mr Sharif's granddaughter, was the first to shake hands with PM Modi when he got off the car at Jati Umrah outside Lahore on Friday evening.

The 65-year-old PM Modi had congratulated Mr Sharif on the wedding of his granddaughter and also presented him gifts.

On Sunday evening, around 2,000 guests, including some VVIPs who had come here from Saudi Arabia for the occasion, attended the Walima (reception) ceremony of the couple.

Both the bride - Mehrun Nisa - and groom - Raheel Munir - have studied at the London School of Economics (LSE).

According to the sources, the Walima ceremonies will also be organised in UAE and the UK in January because many friends of the PM Sharifs could not make it to Lahore.

Reportedly, the locals as well as British tailors have been hired to prepare dresses of the bride and her relatives.
