India, Deradoon: On Saturday, Indian extremist party Shiv Sena attacked an ongoing India-Pak exhibition in the Deradoon in Jharkhand. The Shiv Sena activists stormed the exhibition, closed the doors and chanted slogans against Pakistan. They forcibly got the Pakistani stalls closed and changed the name of exhibition to Indo-Asia from Indo-Pak.
TV reports said, “The exhibition had started on Jan 7 and would continue till Jan 10”. Later, the local administration provided security to continue the exhibition. This is not the first time that Shiv Sena had demonstrated its anti-Pakistan sentiments.
In October last, activists of the hard line party, angry at the launch of former foreign minister Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri’s book, doused the event organiser with black ink in Mumbai. In the same month, the Shiv Sena activists stormed the headquarters of the Indian cricket Board in Mumbai, shortly before Indian cricket officials were scheduled to meet their Pakistani counterparts to discuss revival of cricket ties between the two countries.
