Guests at Indian envoy’s Iftar party harassed by Pak Officials
New Delhi: Guests invited to an Iftar party hosted by the Indian High Commission in Islamabad were intimidated by Pakistani officials, Indian envoy to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria told ANI.
Bisaria added, “They not only violate basic norms of diplomatic conduct and civilised behaviour, but they are also counter-productive for our bilateral relations.”
“We apologise to all our guests who have aggressively turned away from our Iftar yesterday. Such intimidatory tactics are deeply disappointing,” Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria said, reported ANI.
Some Pakistani officials reached out to the invitees from masked numbers and threatened them not to attend the Iftar, ANI reported.
Earlier this week, the Pakistan High Commission in Delhi also hosted an Iftar dinner, where several public personalities including writers, artists and Pakistani students had attended.
