In a television debate, Om Puri has firmly backed artists from the other side of the border and said that he would continue to work with them. When asked as to why he is supporting Salman Khan’s statement on Pakistani actors being “artists not terrorists,” the veteran actor replied, “You want India-Pakistan to be turned into Israel and Palestine and indulge in a fight for centuries.” “It is not merely a division of the country; it is the partition of families. Our country houses 22 crore Muslims and they have their relatives on the other side and vice versa. India has the second largest population of Muslims in the world.”
