Ex-Pakistan cricketer Javed Miandad has invited President Pervez Musharraf to a celebration of his son's controversial wedding to a fugitive's daughter.
Javed Miandad is upset at Indian media coverage
Junaid Miandad married Mahrukh Ibrahim, daughter of Dawood Ibraham, a man the US suspects of al-Qaeda links, at a lavish ceremony in Dubai on 23 July.
Dawood Ibrahim is also wanted by India over a series of bombs that killed 300 people in Mumbai in 1993.
The post-wedding ceremony - or walima - is to be held in Karachi on Thursday.
Pakistani Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz has been invited along with the president.
"I am hoping that they will attend the reception to give blessings to the newlywed couple," Miandad told the Jang newspaper.
He told the BBC that Indian press coverage had created negative propaganda, as a result of which many of his Indian friends had not attended the wedding in Dubai.
Miandad said the media would not be invited to the walima and there would be no filming or photography.
Miandad would not comment on whether Dawood Ibrahim would be at the walima.
Analysts say it is unlikely the president, who has been at the funeral of Saudi King Fahd, will attend.
Dawood Ibrahim was placed on a US Treasury watch list of wanted terrorists in 2003.
Mr Ibrahim has denied involvement in the Mumbai bombings and Pakistan denies that he is living in the country.
Reports indicated that Indian and US intelligence services were monitoring guests in Dubai in case Mr Ibrahim or some of his closest associates attended.
Javed Miandad, a legendary Pakistani batsman and coach, scored 8,832 runs in 124 Test matches.
