New Delhi: India slammed Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif after his tweet on “minority rights”, calling Pakistan a “serial violator of minority rights.”
The official spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs Arindam Bagchi said that “We have noted statements and comments from Pakistan. The absurdity of a serial violator of minority rights commenting on the treatment of minorities in another nation is not lost on anyone. The world has been witness to the systematic persecution of minorities, including Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, and Ahmadiyyas by Pakistan.”
Pakistan Prime Minister in a tweet said that “I condemn in strongest possible words hurtful comments of India’s BJP leader about our beloved Prophet.” India slammed the tweet and said that the minorities in Pakistan include Hindus, Sikhs, and Christians who live in constant fear and threat.
He further added that “The Government of India accords the highest respect to all religions. This is quite unlike Pakistan where fanatics are eulogized and monuments built in their honor,”
Earlier on Sunday, India assured Kuwait and Qatar that the strongest action has been taken against those who made the controversial remarks.
