Live Show Fool Indian Girl Trying To Response Faisal Qureshi Watch Clip
For too long, the Indo-Pak dialogue has been held hostage by bellicose jingoists on both sides, and Faisal Qureshi’s video response to Saif Ali Khan’s controversial film epitomises our countries’ combined misfortune.
It must be admitted that Saif’s statement about losing faith in Pakistan because of Phantom being banned is somewhat lacking in awareness of how India itself deals with Pakistani art productions, which get banned over there too.
Mahira Khan never shook her fist at Maharashtra, after Bin Roye’s screening was inexplicably prohibited there, ostensibly under pressure from Bal Thackrey’s ultra right-wing Navnirman Sena – an organisation often implicated in violent Hindu-Muslim clashes.
Regrettably, it happens often in our countries where freedom of artistic expression remains limited; and getting offended by even mildly unflattering depiction of one’s country as a cause of cross-border strife, has achieved the status of a national hobby.
Far more obnoxious, however, was TV persona Faisal Qureshi’s 12-minute video in response to an ignorant, yet harmless statement by Saif Ali Khan.
