In wake of the dastardly terror attack on the CRPF personnel in Pulwama, English News Channel WION has withdrawn the invitation sent to the speakers from Pakistan who were to participate in its Global Summit: South Asian Edition scheduled to take place in Dubai on February 20. In the official statement of WION posted by Zee News, Zee Business and WION Editor-in-Chief Sudhir Chaudhary, it condemned the heinous terrorist act and called any deliberation on collective prosperity with Pakistan as untenable.
The speakers from Pakistan included former Pakistan President and its ex-Army chief Pervez Musharraf, former High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit and former Foreign Secretary of Pakistan Salman Bashir. WION also withdrew invitation from Information and Broadcasting Minister of Pakistan Fawad Chaudhary and condemned the statements made by him defending the terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad that took the responsibility of the Pulwama terrorist attack.
A delegation of Indian doctors have also cancelled their visit to Pakistan to condemn the Pulwama terrorist attack.
