India has termed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's remarks about its minorities as an egregious insult to all citizens of India. It said, Pakistan Prime Minister's latest attempts to play with minority sentiment will be rejected by the people of India.

In response to the media queries in this regard, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, Pakistan’s Prime Minister has yet again demonstrated his lack of understanding about India’s secular polity and ethos.
 
He said, he overlooks the obvious fact that adherents of all faiths choose to live under the democratic polity and the progressive Constitution of India. Mr Kumar said, India has eminent leaders of all faiths who occupy its highest Constitutional and official positions and in contrast, Pakistani citizens of non-Islamic faith are barred from occupying high Constitutional offices.

The minorities are often turned away from government bodies like the Economic Advisory Council of their Prime Minister, even in ‘naya Pakistan. He said, Pakistan would do well to focus on its domestic challenges and improve conditions of its citizens rather than try and divert attention.
