Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar provided Goa Tiatrist Tousif Sheikh with a simple yet extremely shocking solution to continuous threatening calls which he has been receiving due to his controversial Tiatr ‘Akantvadi Goent Naka’, “Tousif should put off his mobile and change his SIM card. He will stop getting threat calls.
The issue was raised on the floor of the House by independent legislator Vijay Sardesai who expressed concerns about threat to drama director Tousif de Navelim allegedly by Sri Ram Sene (SRS) supporters over his new play.
Parrikar further added that even drama writers should take precautions while penning the plays. He also accused the media of instigating the arguments between SRS and the director.
Tousif had presented his play here on August 9 amid tight police security, after initially cancelling it following threats of disruption by SRS.
