ISLAMABAD: Taking note of Shiv Sena’s rampant anti-Pakistan activism, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said on Monday that the government would push the United Nations to list the Hindu extremist group among the world’s terrorist organisations.

The minister was holding a meeting with selected journalists, where he also said that Pakistan would not proceed with any talks with India until New Delhi ‘behaves responsibly’.

Nisar further said that he would also not approve of playing cricket with India.

“We will not play cricket in India, I will oppose it,” he said.

Shiv Sena storms BCCI HQ to protest Indo-Pak cricket meeting

The interior minister’s statements came in the wake of growing tension between the cricket boards of Pakistan and India as next month’s scheduled series between the two countries remain in doubt after both sides once again failed to reach an agreement on where the matches should be played.

Shahryar Khan wants to know India’s reason to not play in UAE

Earlier in October, a meeting between Pakistan and India’s cricket board officials was cancelled after Shiv Sena workers stormed the Mumbai office of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), further worsening matters.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has asked the PCB not to take any decision without prior approval from the government, Express News reported.

“The board should not decide about going to India before clear instructions are given,” the statement read.

    It seems Pakistan Government and its people are expecting Indian political parties and Indian people should not show their frustration against Pakistan continuous terror sponsoring against India. More over whatever Shiv Sena is doing is inside India that too throwing black ink, in western countries people used to show their frustration by throwing rotten eggs. These things can’t be said as terror activities or extremism.Recommend

    If the ‘rampant anti-Pakistan activism’ is the cause enough for labeling some one as one of the ‘world’s terrorist organisations’, then almost entire world will qualify as one of the ‘world’s terrorist organisations’. This is because almost entire world is anti-Pakistani, for a good reason too.Recommend

    No cricket with India as the Shev Sena has shown its vandalism when Sher Yar visited India on their Invitation.No more visits by our artist and vocalist until some action being taken to chain the free roaming villainous shev sena Gundaas.No more bilateral talks until India show some respect and come to Kashmir agendas.Recommend

    1st what ever Shiv Sena does it do it non violently and within their own nation India and they show their anger and frustration by throwing inks and that too on their own citizens,had it been any western nation you would get boots,eggs and tomatoes.These kind of protests are considered democratic in entire world.Pakistanis are funny and doesn’t even know what they are speaking.In my opinion after this Paris terror attack yesterday in which 150 people gets killed India’s credibility has increased in world eyes and India’s advice on terror will become ever more vital and pakistan should brace for pressure rather than diverting issues.Recommend

    @Sameer:

    That is the problem. Their protests are not non-violent. Throwing paint is an assault which will land you in prison in a civilised country. However since India is an uncivilised Hinduvta run country with a terrorist as PM so everything from throwing paint to calls for cutting throats over cows by BJP senior leaders (a very serious crime) is considered acceptable and in fact laudable.Recommend

    Shiv Sena is a terror outfit… It is a Hindu Fundamentalist organization which clearly has on the top of its agenda to clear India of all non-hindu minorities and especially Muslims who it affirms are invaders and foreigners, even after 800 years of so called co-existence.

    Shiv Sena and its militancy is only throwing ink over the face of secular India! In fact it is very quickly burying secularism and any voices that dissent from its ideology in India…Hindu Talibanization!!

    Pakistan will do a big favour to India by bringing world attention to this scourge, an endemic belief system which instutionalizes caste system as its core belief… which legitimizes birth right inequality and actively preaches inequality amongst its own followers – leave alone people from other religions.
