The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) on Friday gave a 48-hour ultimatum to all Pakistani cine and tele-artistes to quit India or face consequences.
MNS Chitrapat Sena chief Ameya Khopkar told the media that there was “an anti-Pakistan” wave across India after the September 18 terror attack that left 18 Indian soldiers dead in Jammu and Kashmir.
“The MNS calls upon all Pakistanis working in Indian tele-serials, films and other shows to leave the country within 48 hours. If they fail to do so, we shall deal with them in our style,” Khopkar warned.
The MNS’ ‘go back’ order would also apply to sports persons and singers, he added. The MNS would stop producers from shooting shows involving Pakistani actors.
In the past, the MNS and Shiv Sena had adopted an aggressive stance against Pakistani personalities visiting Maharashtra.
