Miss Farina Arshad, Second Secretary at Pakistan High Commission in Dhaka was constantly being harassed by the Bangladeshi authorities.
The Government of Pakistan twice summoned the High Commissioner of Bangladesh and a strong protest was lodged against the treatment meted out to her.
Lately, an incessant and orchestrated media campaign was launched against her on spurious charges linking her with so called terrorists. Our High Commission in Dhaka issued a strong rebuttal against the baseless and fabricated charges against the diplomat.
Following this protest, it was decided to withdraw her. She has since returned back.
The Government of Pakistan once again urges the Government of Bangladesh to demonstrate the spirit of reconciliation and forward looking approach enshrined in the 1974 Tripartite Agreement.
