Fact Check: No! Naseeruddin Shah did not make this statement

A photo has surfaced on the internet in which a quote is attributed to veteran Bollywood actor Nasseruddin Shah.

The quote read: “कश्मीर में भटके हुए मुस्लिम युवक भारतीय सेना पर पत्थरों से हमला करे तो इसका मतलब ये नहीं कि उनके ख़िलाफ़ पैलेट गन का इस्तेमाल किया जाए| इतने असहिष्णु क्यों हैं भारतीय जवान? कश्मीर में आतंकवाद फैला रही भारतीय सेना को कश्मीर से हटाया जाना चाहिए- नसीरुद्दीन शाह ”

(Translation- If the Muslim youth stranded in Kashmir attack the Indian army with stones, it does not mean pallet guns should be used against them. Why are the Indian soldiers so intolerant? Terror spreading Indian army should be removed from Kashmir-  Naseeruddin Shah)
