Post India’s Anti-terror strike, AICWA demands complete shut down on issuing Visa to Pakistani actors
Today, every Indian across the world must be feeling proud of its security forces. The reason is well known and if not we would like to take the opportunity to inform you. On Tuesday early morning, the Indian Air Force avenged the Pulwama terror attack in which more than 40 CRPF jawans were martyred. 12 Mirage 2000 fighter jets of Indian Air Force crossed the border and dropped 1000 Kgs of laser explosives on terror camps in Balakot, Pakistan. The retaliatory action has caused massive damage and it is being estimated that around 300 terrorists could have been killed. Hours after Indian Air Force’s retaliatory action, the All Indian Cine Workers Association (AICWA) has taken upon themselves to ensure no Indian film releases in Pakistan hereafter and no Pak artist applies for work in India.
In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, AICWA President Suresh Shyamlal Gupta has said that he on behalf of the entire film Association and Media fraternity demands a complete shut down on issuing Visa to Pakistani actors. He also hoped that PM Modi will soon order the External Affairs Ministry and Broadcasting Ministry to regulate the request.
