Omar flays harassment of guests at Iftar hosted by Indian High Commission

Srinagar, Jun 2: National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah Sunday said the harassment of guests at an Iftar party hosted by the Indian High Commission in Islamabad was “stupid tit for tat diplomacy”.
“Stupid tit for tat diplomacy. It was stupid when we did it outside the Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi & it’s stupid when it’s done outside our’s in Islamabad. Now that it’s 1-1 perhaps it’s time to move on & stop this nonsense,” Omar wrote on Twitter.
Guests invited to the Indian High Commission’s Iftar party in Islamabad on Saturday evening faced “unprecedented level of harassment” due to enhanced security checks by the Pakistani officials who stopped some invitees on one pretext or other.
Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria hosted the annual event at Serena Hotel for which guests were invited from all over Pakistan.
Those attending the event said that additional security deployment was made around the luxury hotel.
