The problem does not seem to end for Navjot Singh Sidhu, a politician turned cricketer, following his controversial comments about the Pulwama terrorist attack. There was no doubt about the fact that Pakistan had planned and carried out the atrocious terrorist attack against the CRPF convoy in Pulwama that resulted in the martyrdom of more than 40 CRPF soldiers. The episode had shaken the conscience of the whole nation and Navjot Singh Sidhu had decided to leave defending Pakistan after the attack.
While Pakistan had come under heavy criticism from Indian citizens over the isolation of the international community, Sidhu had taken a strange position on the Pulwama issue. Navjot Singh Sidhu, who is a minister in the Punjab government led by Amarinder Singh, said: “for a handful of people, can you blame the whole nation and blame an individual? It (the attack) is a cowardly act and I strongly condemn it. Violence is always reprehensible and those who committed it must be punished. ” This was not well received by the people of India for obvious reasons.
In what may be called another setback for Navjot Singh Sidhu, it has been banned by the Western India Film Employees Federation (FWICE). This was a unanimous decision taken at a federation meeting held in Mumbai. It was reported that in a letter addressed to the Managing Director of Film City, Mumbai, officially known as Dadasaheb Phalke Chitranagari, Goregaon, FWICE has clearly stated that all Pakistani actors, together with Navjot Singh Sidhu, should not be allowed to participate in the filming. . in your study. This is, therefore, a complete ban of Navjot Singh Sidhu and he is clearly facing the appropriate consequences for his insensitive and insensitive comments.
IFTDA (Association of Film and Television Directors of India) has just issued a statement confirming the withdrawal of Navjot Singh Sidhu from The Kapil Sharma Show and also mentioned the termination of all its services with the Sony Entertainment channel. In addition, the IFTDA has also pledged not to work with Sidhu any more.
Sidhu’s endless love for Pakistan and its Prime Minister, Imran Khan, has also created many controversies in the past. His act of attending Imran Khan’s oath ceremony and embracing the Pakistani army chief, Bajwa, also generated a stir. Once, during the Kasauli Literature Festival, Sidhu even said: “………. Neither the language changes in Pakistan nor the people who live there, but when you go to South India, everything change language to basic food, you need to learn English or Telugu if you want to live there, but there is no such compulsion in Pakistan. “
FWICE deserves to be applauded for the bold and difficult movement it has taken. This will send a strong message and make it clear that the nation is going to boycott Pakistan, its citizens, as well as its supporters in India. The country has decided to be implacable with those who still find it convenient to defend Pakistan despite the nefarious designs of the terrorist country.
