India terms Pakistan comments on Ayodhya verdict as gratuitous

In response to comments made by Pakistan on matters internal to India, MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, "We reject the unwarranted and gratuitous comments made by Pakistan on the judgement of the Supreme Court of India on a civil matter that is completely internal to India. It pertains to the rule of law and equal respect for all faiths, concepts that are not part of their ethos.”

New Delhi: India on Saturday termed Pakistan’s comments on Ayodhya verdict by Supreme Court as unwarranted and gratuitous.

In response to comments made by Pakistan on matters internal to India, MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, "We reject the unwarranted and gratuitous comments made by Pakistan on the judgement of the Supreme Court of India on a civil matter that is completely internal to India. It pertains to the rule of law and equal respect for all faiths, concepts that are not part of their ethos.”

“So, while Pakistan's lack of comprehension is not surprising, their pathological compulsion to comment on our internal affairs with the obvious intent of spreading hatred is condemnable."

“The decision has, once again, failed to uphold the demands of justice," according to a statement issued by the Pakistan Foreign Office.

Meanwhile Dean of the Diplomatic Corps in India Ambassador Hans Dannenberg Castellanos after MEA briefing foreign envoys said, ”We understand that the Ayodhya judgement is entirely an internal issue of India but we appreciate the fact that the MEA took the initiative to brief all the heads of diplomatic missions in India on this. We respect the Supreme Court's verdict on the Ram Janmabhoomi issue. We highly appreciate this line of communication that MEA is having with the entire Diplomatic Corp.”

“We can fully and better understand the historic proportion of this ruling by the Indian Supreme Court and the fact that all layers of justice were followed to reach this verdict,” noted the Dean of the Diplomatic Corps.
