Those who can’t take care of their minorities, should not tell others how to do it: MEA slams Pakistan News – India


NEW DELHI: India hit Pakistan on Thursday over the desecration of Gurdwara Nankana Sahib, near Lahore, and the murder of a Sikh man in the neighboring country, saying that a nation that cannot care for its minorities should not tell others how to do so.

A mob attack took place Friday at the shrine in Pakistan, where Sikh founder Guru Nanak Dev was born and a 25-year-old Sikh man was also shot dead in the Pakistani city of Peshawar, northwest Pakistan Last week.

“The incident in Nankana Sahib and the murder of the Sikh man are a mirror for them. It is a mirror for those who teach others,” said Raveesh Kumar, spokesman for the foreign ministry.

He also struck Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan for his reported comments on protests in India, saying it was the habit of politicians in the neighboring country neglecting their own work and commenting on things happening in India and other countries.

“They must look within their country, their minorities, against whom atrocities are being committed. They have to take care of them, do them justice,” Kumar said.

Asked about Pakistan encouraging the separatist khalistan agenda, he said it was destined to fail from the start.

“As far as the (Nankana Sahib) incident is concerned, the country that cannot care for its minorities cannot care for Sikhs, it should not tell other nations how to do it,” Kumar said.
