WEB DESK: After the ban on Pakistani artists in India forever, many artists have expressed their views on the matter. Some were in favor of the decision while other took a humanitarian approach to it.
Salman Khan was one of the actors who said that the actors and terrorists are not to be mixed with one another and he openly supported Pakistani artists.
Speaking at an event in Delhi on Friday, Khan said, “They are artistes, not terrorists. It’s the government who gives them work permits and visas. Art and terrorism should not be mixed.”
As expected, this did not go well with some Indian extremists.
Shiv Sena leader Manisha Kayande said, “Salman Khan needs to be taught a lesson. If he has so much love for Pakistani artists, he should migrate there.”
Khan spoke out against the ban, which was first proposed the MNS after the Uri terror attack. Channel Zee Zindagi, which used to exclusively broadcast Pakistani shows, also changed the line up of the channel by removing Pakistani shows altogether.
