Khan is in India as part of a delegation of Supreme Court lawyers to promote peace and harmony between the two countries. Hailing from Peshawar and currently deputy attorney general of Pakistan, Khan said that strong bonding between legal fraternities of both countries can play an important role in bridging the gap.
During the reign of Pakistan's former military ruler, General Pervez Musharraf, who tried to suppress the rights of the legal fraternity in the country, Khan, a civil rights activist, had once sprayed paint on the face of his counsel to protest his insulting remarks against senior lawyers.
Khan, who feels close to Sikh religion, said Sikhism teaches peace and humanity just like Islam does.
Khan can also be seen serving voluntarily in gurdwaras in Peshawar, polishing the shoes of visitors, and visiting temples. "The bond of humanity should be above all," said Khan. The delegation was on a six-day visit to India. On their return to Pakistan on March 26 through Attari border, the delegation stayed at Amritsar, where Khan performed "Sewa" at the Golden Temple.

The News on Sunday Special Report: India Pakistan prisoners more editions
We probably didn't need to do this Special Report. Newspaper stories don't matter when it comes to Indians in Pakistani jails and vice versa. In fact, 'vice versa' sums it up. We do to them what they do to us.
Except when the two countries decide to begin talking, yet again! This time a little before the foreign secretary level talks, some Pakistani prisoners were released by India (and vice versa must have happened) and some more were release....read more
