Pakistan on Wednesday criticized India for as the upheld its ban on Pakistani performing artistes
As the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA) continues its ban on the performances of Pakistani artists in India, Pakistan has come forward in support of its artists. Pakistan has called on India for having an “anti-Pakistan prejudice.”
Mohammad Faisal, who acted as the spokesperson for the Foreign Office said, “It is unfortunate that art and cinema, which bring people together by acting as cultural bridges, are being held hostage to hate and xenophobia. Unfortunately this decision, following several others, including non-issuance of visas to Pakistani pilgrims, refusal to allow participation of Sikhs and Katas Raj pilgrims, and cancellation of sports matches, underscores the growing intolerance and bias prevalent in India. These decisions taken and/or upheld by the Indian government “expose it of [becoming] a sham-ocracy.”
