Scores of Youth Congress workers on New Delhi protested here against the Pakistan government over the Gurdaspur terror attacks and nuclear scientist A Q Khan’s “disgraceful” comments on former President A P J Abdul Kalam.

Accusing Pakistan of supporting terrorism in India, the tricolour-wielding activists raised slogans against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and demanded an apology from him. A Q Khan reportedly described Kalam as an “ordinary” scientist. The protesters, led by IYC Delhi Unit president Amit Malik, were halted by police near Chanaykpuri police station as they tried to march towards the Pakistan High Commission.

Few were detained for trying to remove the barricades. “The Government of India need to break all relations with Pakistan in view of Khan’s statement and the recent terror attacks in Gurdaspur,” Malik said. PTI VIT SBR GVS
