Speaking on the occasion, various Panun Kashmir functionaries condemned the attack on Anupam Kher and termed it as an attempt to stifle the legitimate expression of a concerned Indian. The meeting expressed great shock at the failure of political masters, behind the dastardly action of the perpetrators of the attack, to gauge the popular mood of the common man in the country.
The meeting unanimously agreed that Panun Kashmir recognized this attack as an ill conceived reaction to the actor’s open support to the mass movement against corruption. Panun Kashmir executive further condemned the involved political class of the country for their brazen acts to attempt silencing the democratic expression of the citizens of this country. The attack on the actor is nothing but an expression of frustration stemming out of the civil society’s endeavor of exposing the clandestine deals of the certain sections of Indian political class.
Panun Kashmir also advised the political class of the country to draw lessons from the immensely successful agitation launched by Anna Hazare and realize that in a democracy people’s voice will always reign supreme. It warned the political class that there arbitrary and self opinioned conclusions will no longer impress the common masses of the country.
The meeting expressed its full sympathy with the veteran actor, whom it termed as not only a community icon but a role model for the entire country. Recalling the number of occasions when the actor openly came out in support of the displaced Kashmiri Pandit community’s struggle in exile, Panun Kashmir declared that entire displaced community will rise in protest against any unjustified and cowardly acts of intimidation against the actor.
