New Delhi: The Indian government will not send any official representative to the Pakistan National Day event at the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi on Friday.  

The Indian government decided not to send any representative to the event because Pakistan had invited the representative of the Hurriyat Conference to the event.

The Pakistan National Day is observed every year on March 23, though the Pakistan High Commission had decided to organise the event this year on March 22.

An Indian minister usually represents the government at the event.

Amid decline in bilateral ties after the Pulwama attack in February, India had formally complained to the Pakistan government about instances of its diplomats and officials in Islamabad being harassed by security personnel.
