Shiv Sena leader demands closure of Pakistan’s high commission

MUMBAI - One of India’s Shiv Sena party leader has called the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ‘shutdown’ the office of the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi, the Indian media reported.


In his statement, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut alleged that the Pakistan High Commission was a ‘breeding ground for spies.’ He also said that this was a very ‘serious’ matter. “Look how far they have penetrated. The people, who were arrested on Tuesday, have links with the High Commission,” he said.


He suggested the Indian government to lock Pakistan’s High Commission in New Delhi and the key should be thrown away. “It should be closed,” he said. Raut asked the government if it was worth having cricketing and cultural ties with Pakistan under the prevailing circumstances. Sena which has a stronghold in Maharashtra state is creating problems with statements and making headlines for the past few months.


“The recent acts of violence could only be described as insane. It seems like India could not hold unjust hatred and aggression against Pakistan a moment longer and burst,” the Indian media reported.
