Close associates of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi, made a quiet trip to Pakistan recently to reach out to government officials and politicians of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), say government sources in Pakistan.

While declining to name the visitors, the sources said this was a practice all over the world and ought to be viewed as a positive move. But the visit had been kept under wraps as Mr. Modi was perceived to be anti-Muslim here.

The surprise element is that the visit took place even before the election result, and nothing concrete was expected as an outcome.
