Salman Khan, on Friday, supported Pakistani artists and stated: “They are artists, not terrorists. It’s the government who gives them work permits and visas. Art and terrorism should not be mixed.”
This statement made Shiv Sena angry; he, on Saturday, he replied that, “Salman Khan needs to be taught a lesson. If he has so much love for Pakistani artists, he should migrate there.”
Along with Shiv Sena, Maharashtra Industries Minister and senior Sena leader Subhash Desai advised Salman to take lessons on national pride from his father and noted scriptwriter Salim Khan. “Pakistan is our enemy and has killed our jawans by crossing the Line of Control (LoC) at Uri. The Sena has always opposed cricketing ties with Pakistan,” he said.
Salman Khan is among the few actors from Bollywood who have supported the Pakistani artists in India.
It is rumored that due to intense pressure from Shiv Sena and other political parties, Salman Khan may consider shifting to Pakistan.
