Pakistan today refused to join in the ongoing debate on alleged intolerance in the country saying it was an internal matter of India.
“I would not like to comment on your internal matters,” Pakistan’s High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit told reporters here on the sidelines of a function.
He said this when asked to comment about alleged rising intolerance in India.
A number of artists, literary persons and film stars have expressed their concern over the alleged growing intolerance in the country in recent months.
The latest to join the debate was Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who recently had said that his wife Kiran had expressed fear for their child in the current atmosphere, inviting strong reaction from BJP and others.
Yesterday, Khan had said that he stood by his comments on “intolerance” and asserted that neither he nor his wife have any intention to leave the country.
