“We have verbally communicated to Indian music companies like T-Series, Sony Music, Venus, Tips Music etc to not work with Pakistani singers. These companies should stop it immediately or we will take action in our own style,” Amey Khopkar, head of the MNS Chitrapat Sena told PTI.
Recently, Bhushan Kumar‘s T-Series collaborated with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Atif Aslam for two different singles. Atif’s ‘Baarishein’ was unlisted on YouTube just a day after the Pulwama attack and Khopkar says it was MNS who got it done.
“They have removed their songs (from the company’s YouTube channel) post our warning,” Mr Khopkar claimed.
In 2016, after the Uri attacks, the Raj Thackeray-led party had similarly set a 48-hour deadline for all Pakistani artists working in India to leave the country.
