Why are the Pakistanis refusing a visit visa to Javed Akthar? This is insane. The Pakistani high commission in New Delhi denied him today. Akhtar was to be a part of a 20-member delegation who were to attend a television channel's show in Pakistan in aid of earthquake victims.
"I don't know the reason why my visa was canceled," said a bemused Akhtar. Among the many other members whose visas were accepted were Saif Ali Khan, Shabana Azmi (Javed's wife) and Urmila Matondkar.
"I was singled out and the best person to answer this question (why his visa was cancelled) would be the Pakistan foreign office," said Akhtar. All other members of the delegation have decided to cancel their visit after this move, as they felt it was wrong for the Pakistan government to cancel Akhtar's visa.
Why is Javed so scary for you?
