An Indian journalist Namrata Brar, on Monday, was asked to leave the room in New York, where Pakistan’s Foreign Secretary was conducting a press briefing. Dhar, working for NDTV, was impolitely asked to leave the room at the Roosevelt Hotel as Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry, Pakistan Foreign Secretary was going to address the media following the United Nations General Assembly. “Iss Indian ko bahar niaklo” were the exact words used to remove Brar from the room. The impolite gesture only goes on to indicate the impending tensions between both the countries that escalated to a new whole new level after the terrorist attack in Uri.
No Indian was allowed to enter the room during the briefing. The Pakistani government and top officials have all avoided being questioned about the terror attack at the army base near the Line of Control in Uri, that resulted in the death of 18 Indian soldiers. It had been reported by India’s Lt Gen Ranbir Singh that the weapons recovered from the terrorists had Pakistani markings. The terrorists belonged to Pakistani terrorist organisation, “Jaish-e-Mohammad”.
Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif also avoided Indian journalists during his trip to New York to attend the UN meet. Sharif, however, remained unrestrained as he talked about Indian atrocities and the violation of human rights in Kashmir. he also sought intervention in meetings with US Secretary of State John Kerry and the British Prime Minister Theresa May. Indian prime Minister Narendra Modi, after a high-level meeting with his ministers, following the terror attack on the loC in Uri, said that India will isolate Pakistan on a global scale.
