Bangladeshi envoy leaves Islamabad

ISLAMABAD: The Bangladeshi diplomat today left Pakistan after expulsion for alleged involvement in anti-state activities.

Moushumi Rahman, a political counselor and the head of chancery in Bangladesh consulate, was ordered to leave Pakistan within 48 hours.

It is worth mentioning that Bangladesh has also deported Pakistan’s diplomat Fareena Arshad on 23 December, 2015 after declaring her persona non grata that is a diplomatic term for an undesirable person.

Relations between Bangladesh and Pakistan have soured lately, after Islamabad strongly protested against the November execution of two opposition leaders for war crimes during the 1971 independence conflict with Pakistan.
