New Delhi : Dubbing Hurriyat leaders as “traitors”, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Member of Parliament and former Union home secretary R.K. Singh on Tuesday asked as to what would be Islamabad’s reaction if New Delhi starts inviting Baloch rebels.
“Pakistan must think that if India starts inviting Baloch rebels, who are fighting for their freedom, how they would feel,” Singh told ANI while commenting on the Pakistan High Commissioner’s invitation to the Hurriyat leaders on ‘Pakistan Day’
The Pakistan High Commission on Monday invited Hurriyat leaders and others to attend the Pakistan Day function here, even as there are chances of a meeting between External Affairs Minister Sushama Swaraj and Sartaz Aziz, Advisor to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Foreign Affairs, on the sidelines of the SAARC ministerial meeting in Kathmandu.
The meeting comes as a major breakthrough as the two sides have been on extremely strained terms since the Pathankot attack earlier this year which had derailed the Foreign Secretary-level talks in Islamabad in January.
Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif may meet his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi later this month on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington. (ANI)
