New Delhi: The Shiv Sena on Tuesday slammed Islamabad for inviting Hurriyat leaders to their embassy on the occasion of 'Pakistan Day', and questioned whether the neighbouring country deserves the goodwill shown by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Government.
"Our Prime Minister and government should look into this matter. We want to have good relations with Pakistan, but do they deserve it? Look at what is happening," Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said, referring to the invitation extended by Pakistan to separatists.
Pakistan has invited Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to attend a function organised to commemorate 'Pakistan Day' at the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi on March 23.
"Umar Farooq will lead a delegation of dozens of leaders to the Pakistan High Commission following an invitation for a function on 'Pakistan Day'," a Hurriyat statement said.
"Besides Mirwaiz, we have received invitation for 35 leaders, including 20 from the Hurriyat and rest from the Awami Action Committee (AAC)," said media advisor to Mirwaiz, Advocate Shahid-ul-Islam.
Earlier, Sartaj Aziz had called off his visit to India after New Delhi protested against the scheduled meeting between Aziz and Hurriyat leaders....
