New Delhi: Social activist Anna Hazare, who led one of India`s biggest mass movements against corruption, will receive a Pakistani delegation at his home in Ralegan Siddhi, Maharashtra, Wednesday to seek his opinion on starting a similar drive in their country.

The delegation constitutes three legal experts, including former Pakistan law minister Iqbal Haider.

The meeting has been organised by the NGO Sarhad.

"The delegation will meet Anna Hazare at 1 p.m. and discuss starting a similar movement in their country because both have similar problems of corruption and terrorism," Sanjay Nahar, who heads Sarhad, told reporters.

"We want to take his views on how this movement can be started in Pakistan," he added.

Hazare went on a 12-day fast in the capital last month demanding a strong anti-graft bill, attracting the support of massive crowds.
