Former Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju on Friday threw his weight behind the artistes from Pakistan, saying “…support all Pakistanis, whether film stars, ghazal singers, etc who come to India to perform, as they are really Indians, and I will oppose attempts by self proclaimed ‘patriots’ ( who are really goondas ) to stop their performance”. Lashing out at MNS and other outfits for protesting against the Pakistani actors following Uri Attack, Katju said ” I will oppose attempts by self proclaimed ‘patriots’ ( who are really goondas ) to stop their performance”. In an extraordinary post on Facebook, Katju said “I regard all Pakistanis as Indians, my own countrymen and countrywomen.” Commenting on the issue, Katju termed government and Army of Pakistan as India’s ‘enemy’. “Pakistanis are really one of us, how can they be our enemies? Our enemy is the Pakistani Govt. and Pakistani army, not the Pakistani people,” he said. Katju also said “Pakistan is a fake artificial entity, and is really part of India, from which it has only been temporarily separated, but will one day be definitely reunited ( along with Bangladesh )…”

Appearing at 10 p.m. tonight on India Today TV channel anchored by Rahul Kanwal on the attempts by MNS goons and Sambhaji Brigade ( whom I have renamed ‘ Gadha Brigade ‘ ) to stop showing Ai Dil Hai Mushkil, because it has a Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.

I have repeatedly said that Pakistan is a fake artificial entity, and is really part of India, from which it has only been temporarily separated, but will one day be definitely reunited ( along with Bangladesh )..

So I regard all Pakistanis as Indians, my own countrymen and countrywomen. I will therefore support all Pakistanis, whether film stars, ghazal singers, etc who come to India to perform, as they are really Indians, and I will oppose attempts by self proclaimed ‘patriots’ ( who are really goondas ) to stop their performance.
Pakistanis are really one of us, how can they be our enemies ? Our enemy is the Pakistani Govt. and Pakistani army, not the Pakistani people.

Earlier, in a Facebook post addressing Pakistan to end the country’s dispute with India over Kashmir, the former Supreme Court Judge had suggested Pakistan can get Kashmir if they agree to take Bihar also as a part of a “package”. “Pakistanis, let us end our dispute once and for all. We offer you Kashmir, but on the condition you also take Bihar. It is a package deal. You have to take the whole package or none at all. Either you take both Kashmir and Bihar, or nothing. We will not give you Kashmir alone. Deal?”

The former Supreme Court judge who is not new to controversies because of his statements on social media even said that the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee had offered the same ‘deal’ to then Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf during his visit to Agra. But Musharraf ‘stupidly rejected it’. “Atal Bihari Vajpayee had offered this deal to Musharraf at the Agra Summit, but he stupidly rejected it. Now the offer is coming again,” he had said.
