Pakistan urges India to investigate violence against Kashmiri youth who celebrated cricket victory

Pakistan has strongly condemned the highly reprehensible attacks against Kashmiri students in India after Pakistan vanquished Indian cricket team on Sunday with a historic 10-wicket victory in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2021.

According to media reports, the Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar said in a statement on Wednesday that this hateful behaviour is reflective of the BJP-RSS combine’s extremist “Hindutva” mindset against the minorities, particularly Muslims.
