Haridwar, January 31
Various outfits in the city have criticised Pakistan for trying to sow seeds of division between the Hindus and the Muslims who have been living in the country in harmony and peace since Independence. The Uttarakhand Kranti Dal at a meeting held at Ranipur sought an apology from Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik for demanding security for Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan.

Central secretary of the labour cell of the UKD Uday Ram Semwal said Malik’s remarks were uncalled for and he instead of worrying for Shah Rukh’s freedom and security should give protection to the Hindus, the Sikhs, the Christians and other religious communities living in fear in Pakistan.
Semwal also demanded an apology from Shah Rukh for expressing his sense of insecurity to a magazine instead of approaching the police or the government in this regard.
While UKD youth wing city chief Lalit Mamgain demanded that all diplomatic and economic ties with Pakistan should be snapped as Pakistan Foreign Minister Hinna Rabbani Khar, Interior Minister Rehman Malik and even terrorist Hafiz Saeed had been trying to defame India’s secular credentials.
The Samajik Sena also staged a march-cum-protest at Chandracharya-Bhagat Singh Chowk and demanded that the cross-LoC bus service be stopped in the wake of Pakistan soldiers’ continuous intrusions into the Indian side.
District party chief Sanjay Kumar Sharma said while the Congress ministers were shaking hands with Pakistan Foreign Minister Hinna Rabbani Khar, army soldiers of that country were beheading our soldiers. State president of the youth wing of the party Prakash Sharma termed the Indian government policies as weak and called for stern measures and policy decisions against Pakistan.
“We have restarted the bus service to Pakistan at a time when two Indian soldiers had been beheaded by the army of the neighbouring country. This is in violation of human rights and international war norms and is also a blot on humanity. But still the Indian government is happy to resume the bus service to Pakistan,” said Rana Ranbeer Singh.
