Salman Khan, an Indian agent wants to import un-islamic things to Kashmir: Chief of Dukhtaran-e-Milat
Salman Khan is making headlines again, this time in the valleys of Kashmir. Recently on a shoot for for Bajrangi Bhaijaan, the Dabangg actor likened Kashmir to Switzerland. The actor also emphasized the fact that Kashmiris love watching films and that cinema theaters should be reopened. This statement of his did not go down well with everyone and Asiya Andrabi, chief of women's separatist group 'Dukhtaran-e-Milat' criticsed him heavily.

Calling him an Indian agent, the separatist chief said that India wants to imports immoral and un-islamic things to the valley and is using Salman Khan for it. While talking to the reporters, she also said that if cinema theaters are ever reopened in Kashmir, then their group would protests strongly against it.

On Sunday, Khan while talking to the press in Kashmir said, "Everyone watches movies here. Cinema theaters should be re-opened here. We would love to premier a film here if theaters are re-opened." However, he evaded a number of questions on Kashmir and asked the reporters to ask the same question to the Prime Minister and Chief Minister.

Reacting to this statement, Asiya Andrabi, said, '' Salman Khan is acting like an Indian agent to help cultural aggression of Kashmir by India.'' Andrabi's was one of the militant group who campaigned against cinema Halls, Beauty Parlours, Wine shops in the valley since the early 1990's.

Banning of cinemas started with Allah Tigers, which is now a defunct militant group. It was in the 1989 that this militant group went on a cleansing spree and tried to what they thought- eradicate Kashmir of every morally incorrect. 

The eight running and functioning cinema theaters in the valley soon closed down. In 1999 the Farooq Abdullah-led government tried to reopen Regal cinema in Srinagar, but militants literally bombed their efforts. Since then films on the big screen has been elusive for the Kashmiris.
