Islamabad, Oct. 13 (ANI): Pakistan’s Foreign Office has expressed its concern over the recent disruption of events organised for prominent Pakistani personalities in India, and asked New Delhi indirectly to take steps to prevent a repeat of such incidents.
In a statement, the Foreign Office said, “We have noted with concern attempts to disrupt functions organised in respect of prominent Pakistani personalities on visit to India.”
“Recently, a cultural event in Mumbai by Pakistani maestro Mr. Ghulam Ali was cancelled because of threats from a fundamentalist organisation,” the Foreign Office said in an apparent reference to the right-wing Shiv Sena.
The statement further added, “Attempts were also made to disrupt a function in Mumbai organized for Mr. Khurshid Kasuri, former Foreign Minister of Pakistan.”
The Foreign Office said it was important to ensure that such incidents do not take place again. (ANI)
