Following the deadliest attack on security personnel in decades, killing over 40 CRPF men in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama, politician across the country have expressed their grief and a step that should be taken against Pakistan. Among them, Raj Thackeray’s Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) on Saturday asked music label companies to stop working with Pakistani singers.
"We have verbally communicated to Indian music companies like T-Series, Sony Music, Venus, Tips Music etc to not work with Pakistani singers. These companies should stop it immediately or we will take action in our own style," Amey Khopkar, head of the MNS Chitrapat Sena told PTI.
The warning from MNS came after the recent Pulwama attack in more than 40 security personnel lost their lives and five injured.
Notably, Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series had collaborated with popular Pakistani Singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Atif Aslam for two different singles. “They have removed their songs (from the company’s YouTube channel) post our warning,” Khopkar claimed.
In 2016, after the Uri attacks, the Raj Thackeray-led party had asked our film industry to boycott Pakistani artist and set a 48-hour deadline for all working in India to leave the country.
