As reported by Indo-Asian News Service, Pandit said that the ban cannot be violated and is non-negotiable, "Those producers who insist on working with artistes from Pakistan will be banned by the FWICE. We're officially announcing the inviolable diktat. All those music companies that still insist on using artistes from across the border in spite of repeated attacks on our country, should be ashamed of themselves. Since they are showing no shame, we will have to force them to back down."

On 14 February, a suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) bus in Pulwama district, killing at least 44 soldiers and leaving many severely injured. Pandit who was in Jammu after the attack, said the incident shattered him.

"How did one person manage to sneak into Kashmir with so much RDX? At a time when the terror attacks have reached a point of no return, it is actually hard to believe that some people in our entertainment industry are looking at Pakistan for talent." Ashoke Pandit further added that it will takes years to rectify the damage.
