RSS Muslim body withdraws Iftar invite to Abdul Basit's insensitive remark

Muslim Rashtriya Manch, a Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) body, has withdrawn its invitation to the Pakistan High Commissioner for its annual Iftar party scheduled for July 2. The right wing body has withdrawn its invitation in the wake of a recent terror strike in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pampore town that left eight CRPF personnel dead. Apparently, Pakistan envoy Abdul Basit’s remarks on the Pampore attack had left the RSS and MRM fuming.
