In its protest to the Pakistan foreign ministry, India alleged Pakistan for not following the code of conduct of 1992, which was recently reaffirmed by both the nations. Also, the MEA added, "The team could not meet the pilgrims on their arrival at Wagah Railway Station on April 12".

In a statement, the Ministry of External Affairs said Pakistan was called upon to immediately stop all such activities that were aimed at undermining India's sovereignty, territorial integrity and incitement of disharmony in India. Gunmen attacked Christian worshippers April 15 as they left Sunday services in Quetta a day before the report was released, killing two and wounding five others.

"Freedom of expression and freedom of association is under attack, except for those who carry the religious banner", commission spokesman I.A. Rehman said at the release of the report, which accused Pakistani authorities of ignoring "intolerance and extremism". According to External Affairs Ministry.

Islamabad however accused New Delhi of impairing environment of bilateral relations between the two countries.

An independent rights group in Pakistan said April 16 that the country has failed to make progress on several issues over the past year, ranging from forced disappearances to women's rights and protection of religious minorities. In March, Pakistan protested after India refused to grant visas to more than 500 Pakistani pilgrims to attend an annual religious congregation marking the death anniversary of Hazrat Khawaja Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer Sharif, reported The Times of India. The MEA had called it an "inexplicable diplomatic discourtesy" by Pakistan, holding that these incidents constitute a clear violation of the Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations.

You all should keep that in mind around 1,800 Sikh pilgrims + from India had traveled to Pakistan last Thursday to celebrate Baisakhi festival at Gurdwara Panja Sahib in Rawalpindi district. It is the capital of the Nankana Sahib district in Pakistan's Punjab province.
