India bars Abdul Basit from attending diplomatic event

NEW DELHI: Pakistan High Commissioner in India Abdul Basit was barred from attending an event in Nagpur held by United Nations (UN).

The justification given by the authorities was that the Hindu extremist organisation RSS had threatened against allowing the Pakistani high commissioner into the gathering, reported Samaa.

Pakistani officials said this was the fourth time the invitation had been canceled. Basit was also stopped by the Indian officials from attending a ceremony in Noida, they added.
