PM Modi wishes Imran Khan on Pakistan’s National Day
March 24, 2019
The relations between India and Pakistan have been bad ever since the dastardly Pulwama attack. India even took the extreme step of entering Pakistan's air space to destroy three terror camps in Pakistani soil. In spite of all the rising tensions, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi wished Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday on the occasion of Pakistan's National Day. Khan took to his Twitter account to share the message sent to him by Modi.
Received msg from PM Modi: "I extend my greetings & best wishes to the people of Pakistan on the National Day of Pakistan. It is time that ppl of Sub-continent work together for a democratic, peaceful, progressive & prosperous region, in an atmosphere free of terror and violence-Imran Khan, Prime Minister of Pakistan
Indian officials did not take part in the celebrations that were hosted at the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi. This is because Hurriyat leaders were invited to the function along with other extremists. Many social media users appreciated the Indian government for the move.
"Outside Pakistan High Commission, Govt officials informing all Indian invitees that - 'Govt of India has decided to boycott the Pak National Day event and now it is for your conscience to decide if you want to attend or not after deadly Pulwama terror attack.' Very good move, tweeted Media Personality Aditya Raj Kaul.
With rising tensions between both the countries, India has been inviting Pakistan to hold talks to curb terrorism that has been growing in their soil. But nothing substantial has turned out till date.
