Pakistan Foreign Office strongly hits back against Indian "mischievous portrayal" of fabricated incidents
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Foreign Office strongly hits back against Indian "mischievous portrayal" of fabricated incidents.
The Foreign Office on Saturday summoned a senior Indian diplomat to "reject the mischievous portrayal by India of isolated, fabricated incidents involving Pakistani citizens as minorities' rights issues".
According to a statement by the FO, the Indian authorities were urged to "refrain from feigning concern for minorities elsewhere for a narrow political agenda".
The statement further said that the Indian authorities were asked to "focus on putting their own house in order" and ensure that minorities in India are provided effective protection against frequent mob lynchings and hate crimes.
"It was underscored that such machinations cannot divert attention from the criticism the Indian government is facing for its own discriminatory policies against minorities in India and the ongoing state terrorism in Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IOJ&K)," read the statement.
