There was no immediate reaction from the Pakistan High Commission on the development.

"However, in the run-up to the main function, the ETPB authorities noticed strong resentment among segments of Sikh Yatrees, gathered there from different parts of the world, protesting the release in India of some film on Baba Guru Nanak Devji".

Giving permission to pilgrims to meet Indian diplomats is a standard practice that helps consular teams to reach out to its visiting citizens in case of medical or family emergencies.

India on Monday summoned Pakistan's Deputy High Commissioner in New Delhi and lodged a strong protest over attempts to raise the Khalistan issue during the visit of Sikh pilgrims to that country while asking it to immediately cease all such activities aimed at undermining India's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Faisal claimed that the facts regarding visits of Consular/Protocol teams on April 12 and 14 have also been twisted. "Similarly, it was denied entry into Gurdwara Panja Sahib on April 14, for a scheduled meeting with pilgrims there".

16 de abril de 2018, 16:45New Delhi, Apr 16 (Prensa Latina) India condemned today Pakistan " s attempts to encourage Sikh pilgrims visiting that country to raise the issue of Jalistan upon their return, said the Indian Foreign Ministry.

You all should keep that in mind around 1,800 Sikh pilgrims + from India had traveled to Pakistan last Thursday to celebrate Baisakhi festival at Gurdwara Panja Sahib in Rawalpindi district.

Pakistan ought to follow India's lead and not play political football with people's faiths, even as it continues to harbour India-bound terror from its soil.

In a statement, Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it was "ironic" that the Indian government was accusing Pakistan of violating the 1974 Protocol on Visits to Religious Shrines as New Delhi was "in clear violation" of the pact twice in a year. In March, Pakistan protested after India refused to grant visas to more than 500 Pakistani pilgrims to attend an annual religious congregation marking the death anniversary of Hazrat Khawaja Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer Sharif, reported The Times of India.
