Pakistani artistes come here on visa, not illegally

The Indian Motion Picture Producers Association has passed a resolution to ban Pakistani actors from the industry in the wake of the Uri attack, which left 19 soldiers dead. "He should withdraw his statement supporting the Pakistani artistes", Bajrang Dal divisional convener Sachin Baghel said.

For the past few days, the situation between India and Pakistan has turned critical with continued debates over Pakistani artists being banned from India.

Mumbai: Samajwadi Party leader Abu Azmi on Saturday welcomed Bollywood actor Salman Khan's remarks on Pakistani artistes, while there was subdued criticism from the Raj Thackeray -led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS). "But still in this day and age, I think if we lived in peace an harmony it would have been better for everyone and especially for common people".

"My country comes first. The government gives them work permit", Salman added. "We are not against art and culture, we are against terrorism", said Adityanath.

Wenger plays down Jose 'face break' threat
However, Mourinho maintained he did not want to make any comments about the book and that he had no issues with Wenger now. And that's not always easy to find a good balance in this kind of game.

Thackeray said "these artistes (Salman) should realise "Nation first". They come here on a visa; who gives them that visa? When at an occasion he was asked about the continuing fiasco Salman Khan came out in support of Pakistani performers. "Fawad Khan shows true patriotism towards his country Pakistan, whilst Bollywood's Salman Khan is ashamed to show loyalty to India". I feel a lot of Pakistani artists who work here they should have condemned the attacks on India over the years. We are seeing ban of Indian movies in Pakistan.

Salman was asked to react on the same at an event yesterday, where he shared his unpopular opinion and has been hot waters since then.

Tensions have been simmering for months between India and Pakistan, but were dangerously ratcheted up Thursday when India claimed it had carried out "surgical strikes" across the heavily militarised Line of Control (LoC), the de facto border in disputed Kashmir. This was despite the fact that, many a time, the Pakistani artists and intellectuals were humiliated and forced to leave India.
