‘Refrain from communal incitement’: India warns Pak over comment on Ram Temple

India on Thursday hit back at Pakistan over latter’s statement on Ram Mandir Temple, asking Islamabad to desist from interfering in New Delhi`s internal affairs and refrain from “communal incitement”

In a statement, the Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said such comments by the country that denies its own minorities their religious rights are “deeply regrettable.”

Pakistan on Wednesday criticized the foundation laying of the Ram temple. “We have seen the press statement by the Islamic Republic of Pakistan on a matter internal to India. It should desist from interfering in India`s affairs and refrain from communal incitement,” said Srivastava.

“While this is not a surprising stance from a nation that practices cross-border terrorism and denies its own minorities their religious rights, such comments are nevertheless deeply regrettable,” he added.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday laid the foundation stone for the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.
