Shiva Sainiks attack Pakistani band Meekal Hasan’s press conference in Mumbai!

Shouting anti-Pakistan slogans, dozens of Shiv Sena activists yesterday disrupted the press conference of a Sufi music band from that country at the Mumbai Press Club

Shiv Sena workers yesterday carried saffron party flags and barged into the conference hall of Pakistani band Meekal Hasan chanting “Pakistanis go back” and “Vande Mataram”.Apparently Sena workers forced their way into the conference hall, heckled the artistes of Meekal Hasan Band and overturned chairs when they were in the middle of a media briefing. Swinging into action, police managed to evict the protesters and the entrance to the club was shut.

President of the club Gurbir Singh said he has approached state’s Home Minister R R Patil and Joint Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Sadanand Date who have assured deployment of additional police force at the venue. Singh deplored the incident, saying efforts to improve Indo-Pak relations should be welcomed and not thwarted. Shiv Sena has been opposing participation of Pakistani artists in events in India for quite a long time.

It had protested against the inclusion of Pakistani television host and cross dresser Begum Nawazish Ali and actor Veena Malik in Bigg Boss show in 2010 and disrupted a Sindhi Sufi music festival in Delhi last year where artists from the neighbouring country were present.
