Shiv Sena slams Naseeruddin Shah for pro-Pakistan remarks

Mumbai: Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece Saamana has slammed veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah for his pro-Pakistan remarks he had made after returning from the country recently.

Shah, who was on the other side of the border for a tour, reportedly said that he was upset with the animosity between India and Pakistan. He apparently had a great reception by the Pakistanis, despite the belief that Pakistani artists are not allowed to perform in India.

Shah, while speaking with Zeenews, said that he wonders why Indians do not embrace Pakistanis with warmth. There is a lot of curiosity among the Pakistanis about India and they show good hospitality towards Indians and artists from India.

Saamana criticised Shah by saying that such remarks for the neighbouring country were not expected from the veteran.

The Shiv Sena mouthpiece has asked Shah if the attacks on India by people from across the border should be forgotten.
