Shiv Sena was already under criticism for protesting against Paksitani singer Ghulam Ali and now again they are under attack for agitating against the launch event of KM Kasuri’s book “Neither a Hawk Nor a Dove”, Kasuri is Pakistan’s Ex-External Minister. The event was held as it was scheduled to be on Monday evening; however the organizer Sudheendra Kulkarni was assaulted by Shiv Sena workers before the event.
The members of the panel who were present at the event were Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah, journalist Dileep Padgaonkar and the famous advocate and historian AG Noorani.
Naseeruddin praised Sudheendra Kulkarni for not cancelling the event and making it happen despite the threats from Shiv Sena and whatever happened with him earlier in the day. Naseeruddin said, “It takes immense courage to do what Mr Kulkarni did this morning at the conference. I thank you Sudheendraji for what you did, and for asking me to be her.”
He further added, “Whenever I was there in Pakistan, never ever was any of my show cancelled or was held up. I have always received love and affection there.”
He told that he never faced any problem in roaming on the streets of Lahore without any security.
He is criticized on Twitter for his statement and you can’t miss to check out these tweets:

I think, Naseeruddin Shah is one of the best actors of all time. But he is definitely not a Nationalist.

Naseeruddin Shah sir ! I really like to know if your family members were victim of 26/11 and still hold the same view on Pakistan.
