The Federation Of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) has sent a notice to Indian promoters Karl Kalra & Nirmal Dhaliwal to cancel their show with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
As tension grows between Indian and Pakistan, more actions are being taken against Pakistan. FWICE wrote in the warning letter issued to the two that “we have received a poster where you are promoting the concert of Pakistani artist, Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan in USA and Canada from 4th October 2019 to 20th October 2019.”
“We have already given our directive that no Indian artist/singer/ dancer/ anchor/ performer, last but not the least, the promoter would work with Pakistan nationals and Pakistan artists, in view of the current alarming situation between the two countries,” the letter clearly stated.
It is, therefore, our humble request to both of you to immediately cancel the above shows to maintain the dignity and honor of your country. You are. India, for which you should be proud." the letter further read.
They added, "In case if you don't cancel the shows of Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and go against the sentiments of Indians, no Indian Artist/ Singer/ dancer/ Anchor, Performer/ Promoter would ever work with you anywhere in the entire world."
