Anurag Kashyap response to critics, says "have every right" to question PM(Update)

New Delhi, Oct. 16 (ANI): Responding to criticism for questioning Prime Minister Narendra Modi about his Pakistan visit, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap today said that he has every right to question the former as a citizen of the country.

"Just to make it clear, I complain because I expect my government to protect us, I question the PM because I have every right to," he tweeted.

Further in a series of tweets, he said, "I am not going to address a party that has become redundant and irrelevant and is trying to find relevance again by using the film industry."

"We have been vulnerable for long, and have been paying the price by being used by everyone to find any kind of standing."

"And the real trade between the two countries across the border has not faced any kind of opposition, but we must pay the price for it and anyone who questions my love for the country by shouting , must prove their love by representing the country either on the border."

"And anyone who questions my love for the country by shouting must prove their love by representing the country either on the border."

"Or prove your love by representing the country in a honourable way. Not by shouting here. And yes sir @narendramodi we need protection.. It's really high time."

"I refuse to live in the fear created by blind fanatics that you cannot have a conversation with your PM or question him or expect from him."

"I would rather ask my questions directly to the PM than trying to impress him by fake nationalism of banning "what puts you in news."

The film writer-director cum-producer expressed his annoyance on social media after cinema owners association decided to stay the release of movies starring Pakistani artistes.

The Cinema Owners Exhibitors Association of India (COEAI) earlier announced that they would not screen movies starring Pakistani artistes in the four states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Goa. (ANI)
