New Delhi, Dec 21 (IBNS): An outfit in Uttar Pradesh has bought veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah a ticket to Pakistan.

Amit Jani, president of the outfit - called Navnirman Sena - has book Shah a ticket to Karachi on August 14, Pakistan's Independence Day, The Times of India said.

Jani said he did this so that "India has one less traitor."

On Monday, in an interview with Karwan-e-Mohabbat, Shah said: "There is complete impunity for those who take law into their own hands. In many areas we are witnessing that the death of a cow is more significance than that of a police officer."

On December 3, police inspector Subodh Kumar Singh and a student, Sumit Kumar, were killed in mob violence in Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahr district after cow carcasses were found. Local Bajrang Dal leader Yogesh Raj is the main accused in the case.

“I feel anxious for my children because tomorrow if a mob surrounds them and asks, ‘Are you a Hindu or a Muslim,’ they will have no answer. It worries me that I don’t see the situation improving anytime soon,” he said.

BJP chief in Uttar Pradesh Mahendranath Pandey has also attacked the actor.

"Naseeruddin Shah is a good artist," he said. "In one of his movies, he played the role of a Pakistani agent. I think he is growing into that character now."

Shah played a Pakistani spy in the 1999 film Sarfarosh in which his performance was widely praised.
