It seems the lives of martyred Indian soldiers don’t matter to a certain elitist section of the Indian populace which continued to visit Pakistan even after repeated attacks on our country’s sovereignty from across the border.
Shockingly enough the musician couple Vishal and Rekha Bhardwaj was all set to jet to Pakistan this week to attend a cultural event called Shaan-e-Pakistan. But now the organizers have shown Vishal and Rekha the door, saying , “Given the current situation, it’s better to not invite Indians to Shaan e Pakistan this time around.”
Ashoke Pandit, chief advisor of the Federation Of Western India Cine Employees(FWICE) wonders why Indian artistes had to wait to be told to keep put of Pakistan. “Why did they keep visiting Pakistan in spite of the building tension between the countries? Such so-called liberal artistes of our country have one argument, ‘Art and culture have no boundaries.’ Saying this, they fly off to Pakistan to enjoy the food and hospitality there. This ‘biryani culture’ has to stop. People like these will never understand the pain and hurt that Kashmir is going through. To them terrorism is not a reality.”
Pandit also condemns Pakistani artistes for not speaking up against the carnage in Pulwama. “Look at Ali Zafar.After the kind of warmth and hospitality he was given by the Indian film industry he is now busy approving of the Pakistani prime minister’s hardline viewpoint on terror attacks in India.When would we Indians realize Pakistanis can never be our friends?”
