Shiv Sena disrupts Pakistani play in India
On Saturday, about five to six Shiva Sena members disrupted a stage drama named ‘Banjh’ (meaning infertile) being played by Pakistani actors in Gurgaon.
“They shouted slogans like ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and disrupted the show for about five to 10 minutes,” Rohilla had said.
This incident came days after Pakistani ghazal singer Ghulam Ali’s musical performance was forced cancelled in Mumbai as Shiv Sena continued its campaign against personalities coming to India from Pakistan.
