"What is all this fuss about Zardari's visit? We will have to close our shops for five hours. It's a huge loss to us," said 21-year-old florist Khursheed Alam, whose shop is a stone's throw from the shrine.


Mohammad Nasrul, who sells readymade garments, said: "The ties between India and Pakistan will not become any good if they force us shut our shops. I not against Zardari's visit but why do we have to suffer?"


Aslam, a tea stall vendor, said: "I don't understand these high profile visits. Just because of Zardari's, visit thousands of devotees who have come from outside will not be able to enter the dargah. What will they do during these five hours?"
