Nominations of Pakistani artistes means justification of inhuman killings of Bharatiya solders : HJS

Patriotic organisations protest against Filmfare Awards 2017 function by showing black flags

Mumbai – On the one side, the soldiers protecting the nation are being constantly martyred in Pakistani attacks, on the other, few producers and directors in Bharatiya film industry, without voicing simple protest against such terrorism, are glorifying Pakistani artistes, who arrive in Bharat just to make some easy money. They are being nominated for Filmfare awards. These nominations are not omitted by the organisers, blinded by their love for Pakistan, despite demands raised through agitations by the patriotic organisations. This goes to show that these organisers are in no way concerned about the interests of the nation. Hindu Janajagruti Samiti and like-minded patriotic organisations have strongly protested against the producers, directors and organisers of Filmfare awards by displaying black flags at the venue of ’62nd Filmfare Awards 2017 function.

The protest agitation was held at 5.00 p.m. today at National Sports Club of India (NSCI), Worli, Mumbai. On this occasion, slogans were raised spontaneously – ‘Shame on Filmfare organisers for nominating Pakistani artistes for awards’, ‘Boycott Pakistani artistes’, ‘Shame on Filmfare organisers keeping an eye on box-office collections’ and ‘Pakistan Murdabad’.

Art is supreme, but, the national interest comes first. Do they feel that the art displayed by the artistes, who support the tendencies assaulting the nation is worth watching ? When the memories of martyrdom of soldiers dying everyday in Kashmir are still fresh, the Filmfare Award organisers feel compassion about Pakistani artistes. When the public in Bharat strongly feel that a war should be declared with Pakistan, the organisers select Pakistani artistes for Filmfare Awards. This is like rubbing salt on wounds of the Bharatiya citizens. To nominate Pakistani artistes means justification of inhuman killings of Bharatiya solders, said Mr. Arvind Pansare), Spokesperson of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti on this occasion.

In this agitation, Hindu Govansh Raksha Samiti, Hindu Rashtra Sena, Bajrang Dal, Sanatan Sanstha, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti and other patriotic organisation participated in the agitation.
