Revealing the reason behind visiting the Indian cinema icon, Kasuri said “Dilip Kumar Saab visited Pakistan twice secretly to bring Hindus and Muslims together. I have disclosed it in my book, Neither a hawk nor a dove, as well.
He added that, “He is one guy who can bring India and Pakistan together. I gifted him my book and he signed and gifted me his autobiography. To me, this signed book will hold great significance. I wish Dilip Saab a long and healthy life.”
Commenting on a question pertaining to the whereabouts of one of India’s most-wanted men, Dawood Ibrahim, Kasuri said, “I was the foreign minister of Pakistan and not the interior minister. To say whether or not he (Dawood) was in Pakistan, I was neither a spy nor the head of ISI.”
