Sunday February 16, 2014 11:23 PM, IINA

Saudi Arabia's Minister of Islamic Affairs, Endowments, Call and Guidance Sheikh Saleh Al Asheikh arrived in New Delhi on Sunday, on an official visit to India, during which he will meet a number of Islamic scholars and Muslim leaders as well as heads of Islamic universities and societies.

Speaking to Saudi Press Agency, Sheikh Saleh said that the visit underlines the keenness of Saudi Arabia to communicate with Muslims in various parts of the world, as well as to boost interaction between Muslims in the Kingdom, represented by the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, and India.

Saudi Arabia, the cradle of Islam, has strong bilateral relations with India, which is the third most populous Muslim country in the world.

There are around 200 million Muslims in India, and they are the largest minority in a country with a population of 1.2 billion. Indian expatriates make one third of the nine million expatriates living in Saudi Arabia.
