In Islamabad, guests invited to an Iftar party hosted by the Indian High Commission were intimidated and aggressively turned away from the venue by Pakistani officials, said a top Indian diplomat, on Sunday.

The incident happened on Saturday evening.

“We apologise to all our guests who were aggressively turned away from our Iftar yesterday. Such intimidatory tactics are deeply disappointing,” ANI quoted Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria as saying.

“They not only violate basic norms of diplomatic conduct and civilized behaviour, they are counter-productive for our bilateral relations,” Bisaria added.

Pakistani agencies virtually laid siege on Hotel Serena on Saturday. They harassed, intimidated and turned back hundreds of guests, said reports.

Iftar is the evening meal with which Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast during sunset. They break their fast at the time of the call to prayer for the evening prayer.
