“There is an end point now to stop Pakistanis to earn commercial remuneration Indians by injuncting them from performing in our Nation. Our brave hearts have lost their lives for us and should we get all the entertainment of performance by the artist of Pakistan in our Nation? Absolutely no. It must end now,” the letter stated.
