BOLLYWOOD: Veteran Indian actor Urmila Matondkar hit out at Indian government for scrapping Article 370 in an ‘inhumane manner’, as the actress revealed that her husband, who belongs to Kashmir, was not able contact to his parents from past many days due to complete lock down in Indian controlled Kashmir.
“Both my in-laws are in Kashmir. They both are diabetic and suffer from high blood pressure. Today is the 22nd day that I or my husband have not been able to speak to them. We just don’t know whether they have enough stock of their regular medicines and we don’t have any means to know that,” Urmila said while narrating the situation she is facing due to abrogation of article 370, Indian media reported.
She further added, “The question is not only about abrogating Article 370. It was done in inhuman manner”.
Urmila is married to Kashmir-based businessman and model Mohsin Akhtar Mir since 2016. She has joined Congress earlier this year and contested Indian general election from Mumbai (North) constituency unsuccessfully.
The Indian government instituted a security lockdown and communications blackout to avoid violence. The clampdown is now on its 26th day. People in Pakistan observed Kashmir Hour today to show solidarity to the people of Kashmir.
