Lahore: Indian journalists, who had gone to Pakistan to cover the inauguration of Kartarpur Corridor on Saturday, took on Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi when he made a critical remark on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

During an official dinner organised for the Indian journalists at the Punjab Governor’s House here on Friday, Qureshi, who made a sudden appearance, said that the “narrow-mindedness” of Modi has hurt the sentiments of Kartarpur.

His comment didn’t go well with the Indian journalists present there.

Questioning his remark, senior journalist Barkha Dutt said that by insulting Prime Minister Modi, he is insulting the Indian representatives present there. At this, Qureshi scrambled to make amends, saying: “No, no, I welcome you all.”

Dutt tweeted about the incident. “After bringing up Kashmir @SMQureshiPTI lashes out personally at PM @narendramodi, when I push to ask why the Kashmir shadow over #Kartarpur. I press ahead to say Kartarpur would not be possible without the cooperation of PM Modi, so why the personal slur.”

Qureshi also raised the Kashmir issue to which another journalist Sanjeev K. Dwivedi cross-questioned him about Khalistan.

Sharing a video of the incident in a tweet, Dwivedi wrote: “The agenda of Pakistan to create propaganda during the inauguration of Kartarpur Corridor failed. The Pak Foreign Minister made a sudden appearance at the Governor’s House in Lahore and targeted India over Kashmir issue. Look how the Hawk of the ruling party reacted when I retorted to his statement.”
