Following threats from Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) to Pakistani nationals, mostly artists, who are working in India, the Mumbai police has assured that they will ensure their safety and security and they need not be scared.
The Mumbai Police quickly responded to the threats. In a statement released by Mumbai Police’s joint commissioner, law and order, Deven Bharti who is in charge of all police stations, adequate protection will be provided to them who have valid documents, to ensure their safety.
“All foreign nationals, who are in Mumbai on valid documents provided by Government of India, need not worry. We will provide adequate protection as and when required,” said Bharti.
MNS on Friday gave two-day ultimatum to Pakistani artists and actors to leave the country, failing which the party said they would force them out.
The party’s Chitrapat Karmachari Sena, its film union gave the ultimatum, even as the party started protests against Karan Johar’s film Ae Dil Hain Mushkil as it stars Pakistani actor Fawad Khan. The MNS said it is against release of this film.
