After the Pulwama incident though, Javed announced that the couple has cancelled their visit and called for a halt to all cultural exchanges between the countries. “Karachi Arts Council had invited Shabana and I for a two-day literature conference about Kaifi Azmi and his poetry. We have cancelled that,” he tweeted.
Pakistani actor Shaan Shahid had a good response to this though. He said,
“Actually, now is the time to come and show the friendship and trust you have on us. It is a fact that Pakistan has nothing to do with it. Remember: hate wins elections. We condole the deaths of all the humans who died in this tragedy.”
Drawing narrative from Javed’s tweet, the Arth star added, “Please write a poem like your father-in-law did on Kashmir, the occupied paradise. Zulm rahay aur aman bhi ho kya mumkin hay tum hi kaho, Hastee gatee roshan wadee tareeqee maim doob gai. Beetay dino ki laash per aye dil main rotaa hoon, tum bhi roo.”
Hours after the Indian Air Force’s (IAF) violation of the Line of Control (LoC), Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Tuesday announced a ban on all Indian content being aired in Pakistan.
