Fawad, other Pakistani artistes given 48hrs to leave India

শনিবার, ২৪ সেপ্টেম্বর ২০১৬

24 September 2016 Calls for Pakistani artists to leave India have been growing after the Uri attacks as nationalist party Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS)’s film wing has issued a 48-hour deadline to all Pakistani artistes to leave the country.

The MNS’s Chitrapat Sena’s President Amey Khopkar issued the statement yesterday, reports India Tribune.

“We gave a 48-hour deadline to Pakistani actors and artists to leave India or MNS will push them out,” reads the statement.

The MSN came up with the ultimatum following a militant attack on Indian army base at Uri, Kashmir that left 18 Indian military personnel dead.

Following the friction between the two countries over Kashmir, some in India have started opposing the work of Pakistani artistes in their country.

Earlier, one Indian journalist penned a letter to Fawad asking him to leave the country stating the war on Kashmir as an issue,reports Pakistani daily DAWN.

"We have watched in pain how you have chosen to look away when your country is inflicting pain on us." he wrote.

Meanwhile one wrote a counter letter arguing that "Fawad is an actor and not a politician... Let’s leave the politics to our politicians."

She added, "We’ve showered love on you because you deserve it (and also because of your dreamy eyes) not because you are from Pakistan."

This is not the first time Fawad and co have received threats from India's nationalist parties. In October last year, Shiv Sena activists had threatened Fawad Khan and Mahira and announced plans to hinder promotions of the actors' upcoming movies, Raees and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

There have also been several protests by Shiv Sena and the Raj Thackeray-headed political organisation against the performance of ghazal maestro Ghulam Ali in India in January.
