Is Mehendi Hassan a poor man !? I don't think so. This is a blatant and too obvious a move to be ignored on lines of 'appeasement'. This may sound good, but is a bit over-done thing.
However, if Mehendi Hassan is all that poor, then I think Pakistan govt should be the one to help him out in his time of trouble. Not govt of India as such !!

It is a good gesture- a humanitarian act To help others especially sick and poor ,irrespective of caste,cred,religion or Nationality is an act of highest order and should be commended instead of reacting negatively It is a natural law that good action begets good reaction. Let thousands of such good actions bloom on either side for mutual benefit.
