Pakistan said on Thursday it was concerned about “rise of extremism” in India and targeting of prominent Pakistani personalities and artists in the country.

“Pakistan is concerned at the recent rise in extremism in India. We expect the international community to take note of it,” foreign office spokesperson Qazi Khalilullah said at a media briefing in Islamabad.

“We have also expressed concern on disruption of functions of prominent Pakistani personalities and artists, scheduled in India, by Indian extremist organisations,” he said.
