Extremists Indian organization, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) have threatened Pakistani artists working in India to leave the country in 48 hours, reported Waqt News.

The threat came directly from Amey Khokar of MNS Chitrapat Sena who gave a 48 hour ultimatum to Pakistani artists working in India to leave the country or to be forced to do so. 

This comes at a time when tensions between the two countries have been running high with the Indian government blaming Pakistan for the Uri attack which killed 18 Indian soldiers, and Pakistan raising the issue of Indian brutalities in Kashmir. 

Fawad Khan, Ali Zafar, Mawara and Rahat Fateh Ali are some of the actors named by the extremists.
