RSS affiliate withdraws Iftar invite to Pak envoy

New Delhi—A Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) affiliate group Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM) has withdrawn its invitation to Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit for an Iftar party after 8 CRPF soldiers were killed in an ambush in Pampore in Indian occupied Kashmir.
Basit was invited for an Iftar party which is to be held at Parliament annexe on July 2. “We have cancelled the invite of Pak High Comissioner. We can’t have iftar with them when our soldiers are being killed. We want to send a strong message that India will not tolerate this,” MRM functionary Mohammad Afzal said. Denying the invite to the Pakistani envoy, MRM added that Basit’s remark on Pampore attack was “very insensitive”.—INP
