PAKPATTAN – Former prime minister and PTI chairman Imran Khan visited the shrine of Sufi saint Baba Farid Ganj Shakar in Pakpattan on Wednesday.

A video of a defiant politician and his aides arriving in Pakpattan to pay their respects at Baba Fariduddin Ganjshakar’s shrine went viral.

In the viral clip, the former premier walked to the shrine with a number of his 'fans' trying to take pictures with the cricketer turned politician. Dressed in black, Khan waved to the devotees and prayed briefly at the shrine.

Reports in local media claimed that the PTI chief was told that Dewan Madood Masood Chishti, the caretaker of Baba Farid shrine, and his family were present inside the shrine, to which Imran chose not to enter inside the shrine.

He prayed at one of two doors that faces the north, ‘Bahishti Darwaza’ also known as ‘Gate of Paradise’.
