An Indian political group has threatened Pakistani actors particularly Fawad Khan, Ali Zafar and Mahira Khan to leave India within next 48 hours.
According to Indian media reports, an Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS)-affiliate on Friday set a 48-hour deadline for all Pakistani artists working in India to immediately leave the country.
Amey Khopkar, MNS Chitrapat Sena while talking to Indian media said said “We gave a 48 hour deadline to Pakistani actors and artists to leave India or MNS will push them out,”
Khopkar went a step further with the xenophobia, saying, “Pakistani artistes will get beaten up. Along with them, we will also beat up whichever producer or director is with them.”
This is hardly the first time Khopkar has issued threats of physical violence. He had issued a similar threat to AIB comedian Tanmay Bhat during the Sachin Tendulkar-Lata Mangeshkar Snapchat controversy.
