External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Sunday got into a tweet duel with Pakistan’s minister for information and broadcasting Chaudhary Fawad Hussain over a report of two teenaged Hindu girls being kidnapped and forcibly converted to Islam in Pakistan’s Sindh province.

In a tweet earlier in the day, Swaraj had, while tagging a media report, said that she had asked the Indian High Commissioner in Pakistan to send a report on the matter of the abduction of the two Hindu girls.

In an unsolicited response, Chaudhary Fawad Hussain had responded to Swaraj saying, that it was an internal issue of Pakistan.

“Mam its Pakistin internal issue and rest assure its not Modi’s India where minorities are subjugated its Imran Khan’s Naya Pak where white color of our flag is equally dearer to us.I hope you ll act with same diligence when it comes to rights of Indian Minorities,” Hussain tweeted.

Swaraj, while replying to Hussain wrote it was Pakistan’s guilty conscience that had evoked the response from Hussain.

“Mr. Minister @fawadchaudhry - I only asked for a report from Indian High Commissioner in Islamabad about the kidnapping and forced conversion of two minor Hindu girls to Islam. This was enough to make you jittery. This only shows your guilty conscience,” she tweeted.

According to a media report, the incident of kidnapping and forcible conversion to Islam of two teenaged Hindu girls took place on the eve of Holi in Pakistan’s Sindh province.
