The All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) has written to Prime Minister Modi demanding a complete ban on Pakistani artists, diplomats and bilateral relations with Pakistan and its people. In a strongly worded letter AICWA says that they have learnt that following the abrogation of Article 370, Pakistan has started encouraging unrest in Kashmir and provoking Kashmiris to create a non-cooperation movement against Indian government and its policies.
The film body adds that in retaliation to the Pakistan government’s decision to ban Indian films in Pakistan, the AICWA has urged the entire film fraternity to completely stop association with Pakistani artists, musicians and diplomats. AICWA has also demanded a strict ‘Say No To Pakistan’ for trade and bilateral relations. The film body says that the film fraternity refuses to resume work till there is no complete ban on Pakistani movie makers, artists and trade partners.
The AICWA President also praised PM Modi and HM Amit Shah for their bold decision and wish them luck on behalf of entire film fraternity and 1.3 billion Indians.
“Nation First, One Nation, One Dream,” the AICWA President Suresh Shyamlal Gupta writes in his letter.
On Wednesday, Pakistan had snapped off its trade ties with India and downgraded diplomatic ties with India.
