Yasair Hussain said that many Pakistani celebs are intentionally not addressing the situation in Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370 by India due to vested interests of securing their fans across the border.
Yasir shared that he and Sami Khan had earlier worked in an Indian film with Om Puri which was a joint venture of both countries and he had a good time there. Addressing the love for Pakistani actors in India, he said:
“Whenever we interacted with people there, they would ask me if I have met Fawad Khan which gives enough reasons that there is so much fan following of Pakistani artists in India.” He slammed on Bollywood for banning Pakistani artists whenever they feel like.
“I belong to Azad Kashmir. Since childhood, I have been hearing about unabated brutalities in occupied Jammu & Kashmir which is not far away from my village in Azad Kashmir,” he said.
Yasir Hussain expressed his disappointment over those artists who want to save their Indian fan following. “I don’t think any of Pakistan’s artist should even think for a moment about losing their fan base at this crucial moment, because they are Pakistani artists and have gained fame from their home country only,” said Yasir.
“They had worked here which is why India saw them in the first place, so if they lose their fan base that doesn’t matter, what matters is that Kashmiri brothers and sisters shouldn’t be killed, this is the most important thing at the moment.”
Yasir Hussain reemphasized that he will continue to highlight the Kashmir issue till his last breath.
