New Delhi/Islamabad: While Islamabad is voicing concern over attempts to disrupt functions featuring prominent Pakistanis, India said it does not need a lecture from Pakistan and can look after any shortcomings.

“As if Pakistan is the embodiment of tolerance and pluralism. India does not need to take a lecture from Pakistan. If India has a shortcoming, it is capable of looking after it,” said a top Indian official source.

The Pakistan Foreign Office said it “noted with concern attempts to disrupt functions organized in respect of prominent Pakistani personalities on visit to India”. The Pakistani office cited the cancellation of the performance by Pakistan based ghazal singer Ghulam Ali in a Mumbai event and the attempts made to disrupt a function in Mumbai organized for former Pakistani foreign minister Khurshid Kasuri.

“There is a need to ensure that such incidents do not recur,” Pakistan office added.
