Pulwama reaction: AICWA bans Pakistani artistes, actors

Feb 24, 2019

MUMBAI: The All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) has announced a blanket ban on Pakistani artistes and actors working in the Indian film industry.

The ban follows the recent terrorist bombing of a CRPF convoy moving to Srinagar from Jammu that killed over 40 jawans at Pulwama.

A statement issued by the AICWA on February 18 said, "All India Cine Workers strongly condemns brutal terrorist attack on our soldiers at Pulwama district in Jammu and Kashmir. Our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims, AICWA stands with nation in confronting such terror and inhumanity.

"We're officially announcing a total ban on Pakistani Actors and Artists working in Film Industry. Still if any organisation insist on working with Pakistani Artists will be banned by AICWA and a strong action will be taken against them.

"Nation comes first, we stand with our nation," the statement said.

Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) had earlier warned record labels to drop Pakistani singers. Subsequently T-Series music company unlisted two of their newly-released songs in which they had collaborated with Atif Aslam and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
