New Delhi/Islamabad: Amid Islamabad voicing concern over attempts to disrupt functions featuring prominent Pakistanis, India said it does not need a lecture from Pakistan and can look after any shortcomings.

"As if Pakistan is the embodiment of tolerance and pluralism. India does not need to take a lecture from Pakistan. If India has a shortcoming, it is capable of looking after it," said a top official source.

The Pakistan Foreign Office said it "noted with concern attempts to disrupt functions organised in respect of prominent Pakistani personalities on visit to India", citing cancellation of a Mumbai event of noted Pakistani ghazal singer Ghulam Ali, and attempts made to disrupt a function in Mumbai organised for former Pakistani foreign minister Khurshid Kasuri.

"There is a need to ensure that such incidents do not reoccur," it said.
