Calls for banning Pakistani artists, movies and music in India from Hindu hardliners
*MUMBAI - *
Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena or the MNS asked music companies on Saturday to pull out songs of Pakistani artistes from their albums and videos, after over 40 soldiers were killed in the ghastly terror attack in Pulwama February 14. Programmes, promotions and collaborations with Pakistani artistes should be banned, said the MNS.
T-Series has reportedly pulled down videos and stopped promotions of two songs by Pakistani artistes after the MNS' demand. by Taboola link: Sponsored Links link: . link Will Never Throw Away a Banana Peel Again After You See ThisHealth & Human Research link
"T-Series has already removed Pakistani artistes' videos from their various channels from February 15 and has decided to ban them all in future. Other music companies are following them," Amey Khopkar, President of MNS Chitrapat Sena, told news agency IANS.
"We have verbally communicated to music companies like T-Series, Sony Music, Venus, Tips Music etc to stop working with Pakistani singers," said Mr Khopkar, adding that if they don't do it immediately "we will take action in our own style."
