Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik and Minister for Port and Shipping Babar Ghori received Dr Chishti at Islamabad airport.


The Indian Supreme Court on May 10 permitted Chishti, 80, who was in a jail in Ajmer, to visit Pakistan during the pendency of his appeal against his conviction in a murder case and life imprisonment.


President Zardari, during his meeting with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in New Delhi last month, had pleaded for clemency for Chishti, given his advanced age.


Chishti was sentenced to life imprisonment for the death of a person in a brawl with him when he was visiting Ajmer in April 1992. He was granted bail by the apex court on April 9 which asked him to make a separate plea for permission to visit Pakistan.
