Pakistan strongly condemned and rejected on Saturday a statement made by the Hindu nationalist group Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh Chief Mohan Bhagwat, wherein he called for an ‘undoing’ of the Partition.
The Foreign Office, in a statement, stated that Pakistan “completely rejected the highly provocative and irresponsible remarks”.
Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar underscored that the RSS chief has publicly indulged in such “delusional thinking and historical revisionism” previously as well.
The spokesperson maintained that Pakistan has “repeatedly highlighted the threat” posed to the regional peace and stability by the “toxic mix of the extremist Hindutva ideology and expansionist foreign policy” being pursued by the ruling RSS-BJP (Bhartiya Janata Party) dispensation in India.
