Pakistani establishment can do whatever they wish: Javed Akhtar
Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, who has been receiving massive criticisms for encouraging war with Pakistan despite her position as a UN Goodwill Ambassador for Peace, has another supporter from the B-town, Javed Akhtar.
In a recent statement, Indian lyricist Javed Akhtar said Priyanka’s stance, backing Indian military, was justified with regards that she is an Indian national.
“I know Priyanka Chopra personally. She is a cultured, decent and educated person and the fact remains she is an Indian. If there is some kind of a controversy and difference in point of view between an average Indian citizen (like Priyanka Chopra) and the Pakistani establishment, obviously her point of view will be an Indian point of view,”
Javed was commenting on Pakistan’s human rights minister Shireen Mazari, who demanded the removal of Chopra as UN peace ambassador for supporting the Indian government’s decision on Kashmir.
“If her comments have upset the Pakistani establishment, they can do whatever they wish,” he added.
Tensions between India and Pakistan spiked after India abrogated the provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution to withdraw Jammu and Kashmir’s special status
