“We have just seen a poster of artiste Mr Diljit Dosanjh who is giving his performance in a show organised by Mr Rehan Siddiqi (a Pakistani National). We are writing to him to cancel this commitment of his in the interest of sentiments and dignity of our nation,” read an August 31 release from FWICE.
FWICE also wrote a letter to Ministry of External Affairs for cancelling his and his troupe’s visa in case he doesn’t call off his tour.
Diljit issued a statement on Wednesday stating that “he was not aware of any such intimation by the federation before today. My contract is only with Shri Balaji Entertainment. My dealings and agreement are with them only and nobody else mentioned in the federation letter”.
“However, in lieu of the letter by the FWICE I have decided to postpone my Houston show at this time. I love my country and will always stand for the greater interest of the Nation INDIA,” he added.
