#India And #Pakistan In The Last 24 Hours

Indian government says it is not sending any representative for the Pakistan National Day celebrations at the #PakistanHighCommission in New Delhi. Official boycott.
Men dressed in civilian clothes stood outside #Pakistan High Commission today evening, just reminding all invitees to the Pakistan National Day celebrations that Indian govt had boycotted the event. "Entirely up to you if you want to attend it, but we thought you should know."
I was told the same thing to which I say that I understand and ask them for the way into the HC. "So you're going?" to which I respond in affirmative. They ask my name, take down my car number and clear the way.
I also happened to be one of the people who was asked to park on the other side of the HC (no parking was allowed near it). While I made the walk back to the venue, I was stopped again by men dressed in civilian clothes and asked where I was going and what I was doing here.
Two officials from the #Pakistan High Commission intervene and ask me to enter the HC from the back side rather than make the walk all the way back to the main entrance.
Once inside, the chatter is all about the reminders that people were given outside the HC before entering. Few people also spoke of how the men in civilian clothes clicked photos of ID cards.
#Pakistan High commissioner, in his speech at the #PakistanNationalDay event says only dialogue is the way forward for both countries.
Interestingly, about an hour after the event ends, @ImranKhanPTI tweets that PM @narendramodi has sent a congratulatory message to him on #Pakistannationalday (Not sure when it was sent: before or after the boycott announcement)
Indian side yet to comment (officially) on what the PM's message was and meant considering there was an official boycott of the event. Reports however coming in of this being a customary message.
Oh and I write men in civilian clothes multiple times because there were policemen in uniform too who didn't say one word about the boycott.
