After failing to gain worldwide attention over the revocation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir by PM Narendra Modi-led government, Pakistan government on Friday decided to ban the sale of CDs of Indian movies. This move is among a few other petty actions taken by the neighbouring country to show it opposes the abrogation of Article 370.
Republic TV spoke to well-known filmmaker Ashoke Pandit on the situation. He said that Pakistan's move was futile as no country in the world takes it seriously owing it being 'rogue' nation.
"See it is very laughable and it is an outcome of their desperation, as they don't know how to react to the situation. In fact a small child, the way he behaves when he is not given a bar of chocolate, he shouts and screams but there is no outcome. Similarly, one thing is very clear that this is all the desperation act of theirs, banning the ads and now CDs. But I would like to question the Aman Ki Asha gang, and all those liberals who say that art is beyond anything so they are quiet and silent about it. Now coming back to Pakistan, this act of theirs is invalid and they know that they can't achieve anything with whatever they are doing as the entire world knows and that is why the entire world is not taking Pakistan seriously as it shields terrorists and it is a rogue nation. And not only India but the entire world is saying that. It brings in terrorists, it gives work to terrorists, it survives on violence and bloodshed," he said.
BJP MP from Gorakhpur Ravi Kishan also reacted to the move by Pakistan. Watch it below:
