“Imran Khan congratulated Narendra Modi for his victory and also expressed the need of both countries to move forward on the path of peace. But can the incident at Saturday’s Iftar party be considered a peace-building measure?”
The Shiv Sena pointed out that “well known” personalities, who were invited to the party were all Pakistani citizens.
It further said that no invitation to people like Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) Chief Masood Azhar on the occasion could be a possible reason behind Pakistan’s anger.
“All those invited to the Iftar party organised by the High Commission of India were all ‘well known’ people of Islamabad. The main thing is that these were all Pakistani citizens. Possibly, the reason behind Pakistan’s anger is people like Masood Azhar were not invited for the party,” Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamana said.
Continuing to lash at Pakistan, Shiv Sena maintained that the neighbouring country has become a “factory” of global terrorism, which is being controlled by its Army and ISI.
“Pakistan has become a factory of global terrorism, not a country. ISI and Pakistan Army are keeping control over Pakistan. Thinking that Prime Minister Imran Khan was chosen with the path of democracy, this is the illusion,” Saamana stated.
