NEW DELHI: In an undiplomatic move, Pakistan’s High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit was not allowed to enter a diplomatic gathering in Nagpur, Indian media reported on Wednesday.
The diplomatic gathering was arranged by the United Nations and Basit was invited to attend the meeting. The justification given by the authorities was that the Hindu extremist organisation RSS had threatened against allowing the Pakistani high commissioner into the gathering.
Officials at the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi said this was the fourth time the invitation had been canceled. They also said that this was against the diplomatic norms.
