The boxing star has been given the opportunity to visit the LoC by Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations Major General Asif Ghafoor.
The troubled region of Indian occupied Kashmir has been in a state of virtual lockdown for the past three weeks, after the Government of India scrapped the Article 370, ending the autonomous state of the Muslim-majority region.
