While Miandad and his wife attended the late night ceremony yesterday, it was not clear whether Dawood, who is based in Karachi and wanted by India in connection with the Mumbai serial bomb blasts, has attended the wedding.
According to sources, Indian intelligence agencies kept a close watch at the venue of the wedding of Dawood's daughter Mahrukh and Miandad's son Junaid, especially to know who all are attending from India, especially from Mumbai.
However, it is believed that no big shots from either Bollywood or from the sports circuit were present at the lavish ceremony.
An expensive invitation card sent to the guests and published in a local daily here read: "Mr and Mrs Dawood Hassan Shaikh Ibrahim have extended the invitation for the wedding ceremony of their beloved daughter with Junaid Miandad s/o Mr and Mrs Javed Miandad Insha Allah on Saturday, 23rd July 2005."
The card said: "Marriages are decided in Heaven and will be celebrated on Earth, Oh! Allah guide this couple to the best of happiness, understanding and success (Aameen)."
Though the arrival of Barat (the bridegroom and his party) was scheduled for 9.30 pm and the dinner at 10 pm, the programmes were delayed for a few hours, sources said.
A lavish reception for the couple would be organised on August 4 in Karachi where all the relatives, friends, well-wishers and high-profile figures will be invited, Miandad said.
