Sunak also replied to Pakistani MP
Pakistanis are trying to surround PM Modi all over the world on the basis of BBC’s recent documentary. But every time they have to face the consequences. Earlier in the UK Parliament too, an MP of Pakistani origin had asked British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak his views on the documentary. Sunak replied saying that he does not agree with such ‘characterization’ of PM Modi. He said that the British government’s stand on this matter is very clear and there has been no change in it.
