Pakistan Is Stopping Sikh Pilgrims From Meeting Indian Officials, Official Complaint Lodged

India has lodged a strong protest with Pakistan over blocking Sikh pilgrims’ access to Indian diplomats and consular teams, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said in a press release today.

“A standard practice has been that the Indian High Commission’s consular/protocol team is attached with visiting pilgrims, to perform consular and protocol duties, like helping out in medical or family emergencies. However, this year, the consular team has been denied access to Indian Sikh pilgrims,” the MEA said.
