BJP’s national spokesperson Shaina NC has come for the rescue of Salman Khan, after his statement that Pakistani artistes are not terrorists and that they should be allowed to work in India if they’ve proper visas, has raised a furore in some circles.
However, Shaina NC said, “Salman was asked a question. He answered it.”
After Salman’s comments, on Pakistani artises, MNS chief Raj Thackrey has threaten to ban Salman’s films and told him to get a work permit in Pakistan. “This is a totally uncalled-for reaction. One shouldn’t piggyride on Salman’s stardom just to get noticed,” said Shaina.
About Salman’s father Salim Khan stepping in to defend his son Shaina says, “Salim Saab is someone whose views I respect immensely. And I see nothing wrong in him giving his opinion as he is highly regarded both within and outside the film industry. And really, all argument as to what Salman meant by his remark ends with the question…are we going to provide visas to Pakistanis in near future? Clearly not! We gave visas when there was room for dialogue between the two countries. Now, there there is absolutely no room for interaction. Now, currently with Pakistan in a denial mode and with Nawaz Sharif in no mood for accepting the terror attacks from Pakistan, we see no room for any communication, at least not at the moment, on any level, economic, political or cultural.”
“Who the hell cares what he said or didn’t say, as long as he had the decency to speak up against terrorism?As someone who has been working in India he needs to condemn all acts of terror. By doing so, he wouldn’t be condemning his government.Why should he keep quiet about an actor of terror in a country that has given him his identity?” Shaina added.
“Pakistan needs to pay heed to the pressure from the world community and what it’s doing to its own country. There is no normalcy in Pakistan. And they need to accept that,” she further added.
