Shabana Azmi shaken by Pulwama attack, says all cultural exchanges with Pakistan must stop

Shabana Azmi always believed the borders between the two warring nations India and Pakistan must not be sealed against cultural exchanges.
JhaBySubhash K.Jha Feb 16, 2019 – 10:41 am IST But now after the dastardly and gruesome Pulawama attack Shabana feels all communication and exchange with Pakistan must stop. Says the activist actress, “We will need to call halt to cultural exchange as of now.There is no way we can carry on when our martyrs are laying down their lives are for us. I stand in solidarity with the grieving families.”Recuperating in hospital from an attack of swine flu she says, “I am filled with pain and grief by the dastardly #Pulwama attack. For the 1st time in all these years I feel weakened in my belief that people to people contact can force the Establishment to do the right thing.
Javed and I were invited by Karachi Arts Council for a 2 day event celebrating my father Kaifi Azmis birth centenary. I appreciate that our hosts have mutually agreed to cancel the event at the nth hour in wake of the Pulwama attack.Rekhta has also cancelled their 3 day celebration in Dubai which included a show of our play Kaifi aur Main by IPTA. All Indians stand united as one.”However she counsels against generating animosity between civilians on both sides. “Let’s not lose sight of the fact that we must not confuse the Pakistan establishment with the people of Pakistan, and vice versa.On both sides of the border there are sisters and brothers who stand divided by circumstances they have had nothing to do with.”Filmmaker Aditya Dhar whose Uri a film on the gruesome attack on Indian soldiers by Pakistan has created box office havoc, has taken the latest attack very personally.“This attack is truly heart-breaking. I don’t know why but now after having made Uri I am taking this attack very personally.I think our Government needs to take the strongest action to ensure such carnage doesn’t happen again.”Aditya who at one point in time was contemplating directing a film with Pakistan’s Fawad Khan, also feels like Shabana that Pakistan’s artistes must be banned in India for now.
“Just as Pakistan is being isolated in every way possible the country should be isolated in matters of cultural exchange also. After this latest attack we should sever all ties and stop all communication with Pakistan.”

Pulwama Terror Attack: How will it impact India vs Pakistan cricket?

The Pulwama terror attack resulted in the death of 42 CRPF personnelIndia and Pakistan’s cricketing ties have been strained ever since 2008 Mumbai Terror attacks.India and Pakistan will square off in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in Manchester.
The Pulwama terror attack is the bloodiest attack on India’s security forces ever since the terror attack in Uri in 2016. At least 42 CRPF personnel were killed when their vehicle was blown up by an improvised explosive device or IED explosion on the Srinagar-Jammu highway in the Awantipora area of the district.
The attack has angered the people of India, with many sporting personalities venting their anger out on . The likes of Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Yogeshwar Dutt, Sushil Kumar, Bajrang Punia, Saina Nehwal and others all offered their condolences.
Gambhir, who retired from all forms of cricket recently and has been vocal on a lot of issues, went one step further stating, Yes, let’s talk with the separatists. Yes, let’s talk with Pakistan.
But this time conversation can’t be on the table, it has to be in a battle ground. Enough is enough.
Gambhir’s aggressive tone is nothing surprising. After any terror attack by Pakistan on Indian soil, a pattern emerges in the aftermath.
There is widespread condemnation on social media, Bollywood and sports personalities vent their anger out on , channels show debates and there are visuals of ordinary citizens calling out for revenge against Pakistan while there is renewed call for tough military action against Pakistan. The 2016 terror attacks in Uri, which resulted in the death of 18 soldiers of the Indian Army, strained the relationship even further.
Priority is to expose Pak as country which sponsors terrorism. No question of playing cricket with such a nation, the-then BCCI president Anurag Thakur had said about cricketing ties.
Pulwama Terror Attack: Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag and India’s sporting stars vent angerVirat Kohli slammed for ‘insensitive’ tweet over Pulwama terror attackPulwama Terror Attack: Stand by our Indian friends during this difficult hour, says IsraelToo much at stakeThis is the year of the ICC Cricket World Cup and India will play Pakistan in Manchester on June 16. It is THE marquee match of the tournament.
There is plenty of pride at stake for cricketing fans of both nations. There is plenty riding financially for the International Cricket Council (ICC) and for world cricket.
Will Pulwama be the final full stop in India vs Pakistan cricketing relations? Will India go the extra mile and boycott the game against Pakistan in Manchester due to the attacks in Pulwama? The answer is NO.For all the bluster shown by the Indian public when it comes to taking revenge on Pakistan for a terror attack, they become awkwardly silent when it comes to an India vs Pakistan cricket match.
Keep politics away from sports. The players are not responsible for this situation.
This is the common mantra related by many individuals when it comes to a sporting contest. Sports are beyond politics.
It is often stated that sports individuals are soft targets for the policies of a state.The sad part is that the anger and bluster shown by the Indian fan will fizz out when it comes to the World Cup encounter.
The people who head the game will not want to jeopardise a massive money-making opportunity. The cricket fans’ will conveniently forget all the pain and talks about revenge to don the tri-colour and cheer for the team when they defeat Pakistan.
The government will conveniently not want to interfere. Since it is election season, the Pulwama attack could potentially be used as an election sop.
The sporting issue will just endure another year of stalemate.Will India follow England’s lead and not play a league game in the Cricket World Cup like they did in 2003? In 2003, England’s players faced plenty of domestic pressure to boycott their game in Harare, Zimbabwe over the atrocities’ committed by the Robert Mugabe regime at that time.
The boycott resulted in England’s early elimination but they held on. Although atrocities and terrorism are a different dynamic, this falls under the prism of morality.
For people who say keep politics away from sport, they conveniently forget about how sporting isolation played a small but significant part in the downfall of apartheid in South Africa.The anger and calls for revenge are at fever pitch and will endure for a couple of days on social media.
