As he visited the dargah of Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti and interacted with the khadims of the shrine in Ajmer on Sunday, Bilawal Bhutto, the 24-year-old son of visiting Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari, drew instant comparisons with Gandhi scion Rahul Gandhi.

"Bilawal looks like the Pakistani version of Rahul Gandhi... He is a soft spoken person and a thorough gentleman," Syed Natik Chishti, khadim at the dargarh who helped Bilawal and President Zardari perform their prayers, told IANS.
"We were very impressed by Bilawal... He seems so full of energy and has a kind and clean heart... He is just like Rahul Gandhi," he said.
Chishti said Bilawal held his hand and asked him to pray for the harmonious relations between the two countries.
