“Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray had said that It was a matter of pride for him to be in the hit list of Pakistani terror groups. Pakistan’s appeal from the international community against Shiv Sena is a stamp on our pure nationalism,” India today wrote in an article with the title Shiv Sena Ko Mahavir Chakra, Shukrya Pakistan.
Previously, after consistent intolerance was seen practiced by the extremist group against Pakistanis in India, Pakistan requested the international community to take quick notice of Sena’s terrorist activities.
“I agree with you that the international community should take note of the terrorist activities of this organization. We have repeatedly expressed our concern on its activities,” Pakistan Foreign Office spokesman said.
