Pakistan Summons Indian Envoy To Record Protest

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Tuesday summoned the Indian Charge d’Affaires to convey its “strong rejection of baseless and fabricated Indian allegations concerning the Sikh community” according to a press release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA). 

On Friday, dozens of demonstrators had protested over alleged unjust treatment of police in a case involving the marriage of a young couple, which was portrayed as a communal issue by the Indian media.

Pakistan strongly protested the “motivated and mischievous allegations” posed by the Indian government relating to the ‘attack’ and ‘desecration’ of the holy Gurdwara Nankana Sahib and “targeted killing” of a Pakistani Sikh youth in Peshawar.

The statement said that the allegations were ‘desperate attempts’ on part of the Indian government to divert the attention from the atrocities it was committing in occupied Kashmir.
