It is time that ppl of Sub-continent work together for a democratic, peaceful, progressive & prosperous region, in an atmosphere free of terror and violence.”

The message comes in such time when the ties between India and Pakistan are at severe strain after terror attack on CRPF convoy by Jaish-e-Mohammed on February 14 in Pulwama district of Kashmir.

Meanwhile, India also boycotted a reception at the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi as invites were also extended to several separatist leaders from Jammu and Kashmir.

Even though Pakistan will celebrate the day tomorrow, but the High Commission organized an event in the Indian capital today.
