Q.

Two Pakistani diplomats have been denied permission by GOI to attend the Jaipur Literature Festival. This move threatens to spark fresh acrimony between India and Pakistan (TOI).
What have foreign government representatives got to do with literature, anyway?

Prime Minister did say that it can not be 'business as usual' with Pakistan. So our move was correct. And you are right that what these Pakistani Govt. diplomats have to do with Literature ?

Pakistan has exposed its weakness in supporting terrorist activities in many forms via culture, circulating counterfeit notes, cross border activities, beheading our soldiers. India needs to cautiously tread now. Unless Pakistan gives up its anti India sentiment there is no use in peace process

Since the Government is real 'Maai-Baap' in some country, literature, art and history also become their exclusive property.
But the question is why India is becoming an experimental zone !!!

I think the government might have taken the decision after weighing the pros and cons of the issue
