Atif Aslam, Veena Malik may be ‘artists’ for peaceniks in India, but to them, they will always remain Pakistani first

Interestingly, artists across the border are hailed by the so-called liberals and welcomed with open arms while claiming that art has no boundaries.

Pakistani singer, Atif Aslam, whose songs were banned by the popular music company T-series in wake of the ghastly terrorist attack in Pulwama took to Facebook to write a post denouncing India bold move to dilute Article 370 in Kashmir.

In his post, Atif Aslam condemned the “violence and tyranny being conducted against the Kashmiris” and prayed to Allah to bless the lives of the innocents in Kashmir.

Aslam was leaving for Hajj and before condemning the imaginary violence in Kashmir, he asked for forgiveness from all.

Interestingly, artists across the border are hailed by the so-called liberals and welcomed with open arms while claiming that art has no boundaries. Except, when it comes to Pakistan, the Pakistani artists will always put their country and quite often their religion above everything else. Such can be seen from reality show contestant turned Internet troll Veena Malik.

While Malik casually engages in spreading fake news on the Internet, she also appears to be in dire need of some therapist for her outbursts which can only be termed psychotic, to put it mildly.

There were no cluster bombs used against Pakistan nor has any force been used against Kashmiris. She had sort of lost her mind even during the Balakot Air Strike the Indian Air Force carried out against the terror camps in Pakistan. She is also an unabashed fangirl of Pakistani Army.

But she will always, remain a Muslim.

Which is fine. Except, the ‘liberals’ on this side of the border always saw her as an artist. Back in 2014, Malik had tweeted “India sucks” and blamed it on her India-based manager Prashant Singh. She had accused him of hacking into her account. Back then also, filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt had reportedly come to her rescue and asked her to ‘ignore’ such ‘hacking’.

Apparently, till 2014, she considered herself to be an ambassador between India and Pakistan and had “immense respect” for India.

Bhatt, a regular peacenik and father of Rahul Bhatt, who was allegedly a close associate of terrorist David Headley who was involved in 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, has been instrumental in making careers of both Atif Aslam and Veena Malik. Bhatt was the first one to give Aslam a chance in his film ‘Zeher’ by including his song ‘Woh Lamhey’. Bhatt has also been a wellwisher of Malik.

And while Bhatt may want to cry himself hoarse that art and artists have no religion or boundaries, he could perhaps look a little closer to see how two of his proteges are proving him otherwise.
