Greetings across the border have continued unabated even though the relations between both countries have been affected in the wake of a number of terror strikes in Indian territory by Pakistani sponsored groups.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had wished his Pakistan counterpart on his birthday on December 25. The PM wrote on his official Twitter account “Birthday wishes to Pakistan PM Mr Nawaz Sharif. I pray for his long and healthy life.” His step was critised by Shiv Sena. Taking a dig at it, Party invoked Chhatrapati Shivaji saying the warrior king never extended such greetings to “the enemies of the nation.” The Shiv Sena’s comment at Modi came within days of his laying the foundation for a grand memorial to Shivaji in Mumbai.
