In the wake of Pampore terror attack, Muslim Rashtriya Manch, an RSS affiliate body has withdrawn its invitation to the Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit for its annual Iftar party, scheduled for July 2.
Convener of Rashtriya Muslim Manch Afzal on Tuesday said ” Withdrew invite as Mr. Abdul Basit failed to condemn PamporeAttack.”
The move comes after, Basit downplayed the deadly attack by asking the media to focus on the Iftar party during Ramzaan. “We hope we will sit and discuss on the issue and find a solution. It’s the month of Ramzaan, let’s focus on this Iftaar party,” Basit told the media when asked to react on the Pampore attack.
On Saturday, The Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Toiba had claimed responsibility for the attack on the Central Reserve Police Force convoy in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pampore town that left eight CRPF personnel dead.
