Refrain from communal incitement: India slams Pak for its criticism of Ram Temple construction
India’s Ministry of External Affair hit back at Pakistan over its statement on Ram Temple, asking Islamabad to abstain from interfering in India’s internal affairs and refrain from ‘communal incitement’.
Anurag Srivastava, Ministry of External Affairs in his statement said such comments by country that has been denying its own minorities their religious rights are ‘deeply regrettable’.
The statement came after Pakistan on Wednesday criticized laying of the Ram temple foundation.
“We have seen the press statement by the Islamic Republic of Pakistan on a matter internal to India. It should desist from interfering in India’s affairs and refrain from communal incitement,” said Srivastava.
“While this is not a surprising stance from a nation that practices cross-border terrorism and denies its own minorities their religious rights, such comments are nevertheless deeply regrettable,” he added.
The foundation stone for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya was laid by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
