Amid a raging debate in the country over the banning of Pakistani actors from working in India in the wake of the terrorist attack in Uri, Bollywood actor and producer Dia Mirza today said ''patriotism that propagates hate is not patriotism”.
Breaking her silence on the controversy, Dia, in a tweet said, ''patriotism that propagates hate is not patriotism. United we rise. Divided we fall. Politicians polarise to rule, not serve society.'' The tweet by Dia comes even as the tensions between India and Pakistan have led to several celebrities , including Ajay Devgn, Anupam Kher, singer Abhijeet and actor Raju Srivastava call for a ban on working of Pamistani actors in India.
The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has threatened a ban on Pakistani actors working in Indian films and have warned stalling of films which feature Ipakistan actors. Superstar Salman Khan and filmmaker Karan Johar have opposed ban on Pakistani talent, but faced a backlash for their opinions. Pakistani talent Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan have also broken their silence, with Fawad praying for “a more peaceful world'', and Mahira condemning any act of terror, no matter what.
