The dastardly Pulwama terror attack has created a nationwide stir, with sorrow spread all over the country. Minutes after the attack, a Pakistan-based terror organisation named Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) claimed to be responsible behind the blast. Ever since then, the already ruptured Indo-Pak relations have got even worse. People from across the country are showing their angst in various forms. From chanting anti-Pakistan slogans on the streets to expressing their disappointment on social media through trends, they have done it all.
Amid this outrage, people also urged the film fraternity to boycott all the artists from Pakistan. Respecting the same, the All Indian Cine Workers Association (AICWA) has declared a total ban on Pakistani artists working in the Bollywood film industry. An official statement of the same has been released by ANI’s official account. The statement clearly states that if any organisation chooses to work with Pakistani artists, despite the ban, it will face a ban by AICWA and a strict action will be taken against them. It was only recently that Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series removed two of its tracks that were sung by Atif Aslam and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
The horrific attack took place in Kashmir’s Pulwama district on February 14, 2019, after a suicide bomber belonging to the terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) drove an explosive-laden SUV into a convoy filled with soldiers.
