Sena disrupts play by Pak theatre troupe

Shouting anti-Pakistan slogans, alleged Shiv Sena activists on Saturday disrupted a show staged by some Pakistani actors in Gurgaon.

Around 5-6 young men claiming to be Shiv Sainiks climbed atop the stage at an open air theatre in Gurgaon, on Delhi’s outskirts, where a group of seven Pakistani actors were staging a play “Banjh” (infertile).

“They shouted slogans like ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and ‘Pakistan Murdabad’ and disrupted the show for about 5-10 minutes,” said Satbir Rohilla, PRO  of Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon.

Though some reports stated that the activists pulled down Pakistani flags put on the stage, Rohilla said nothing of that sort happened. The show by artistes from Mass Foundation, Lahore, later resumed.

Rohilla said authorities decided against reporting the matter to the police as they did not want to “turn the troublemakers into heroes”.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) Deepak Sharan said though no complaint has been registered by the organisers, the matter is being investigated. He said the organisers neither obtained permission for the play nor intimated the local police about it.
