Hindu extremists try to disrupt Indo-Pak journalists’ moot

EW DELHI: Activists of the Shri Ram Sena, a Hindu extremist group, tried to disrupt a Pak-India journalists moot here on Wednesday.

Organised by the Foundation for Professional Journalists, two groups of journalists from each country formed a panel for a discussion on “Is media jingoism fanning Indo-Pak tensions.” Journalists from Pakistan included Rahimullah Yusufzai, Saeed Minhas, Muniba Kamal and Beena Sarwar.

A large number of journalists and academicians participated in the discussion. As Rahimullah Yusufzai was speaking on the subject, a group of Shri Ram Sena activists stood up and started raising slogans against Pakistan. The slogans included “Jang Karen Ge Pakistan Se.”

The activists tried to rush towards Yusufzai but the organisers and participants pushed them out and locked the door. They continued raising slogans against Pakistan outside the hall. Later, a police contingent reached the spot to control the situation. Later, talking to APP Yusufzai described it an “unfortunate incident.” He said it was purely an academic discussion and had nothing to do with the politics between Pakistan and India.
