Ever since the dastardly Uri Attacks which left 19 army men martyred, the chorus and the anger within the country has been growing. The government of the day is under pressure to take decisive action against Pakistan, but much of the action has been pointed towards Pakistani actors working in Bollywood. Specifically, Fawad Khan.
Fawad, Mahira Khan, and other actors have been criticised by a large section of India for their silence over the Uri Attack and not condemning them while they didn’t waste time condemning Paris and other attacks in the world. There has been a huge section of India though who’ve fought for the sake of the Pakistani artists and asked for them to be kept out of the war-like situation between the two neighbors.
Finally, Fawad Khan has spoken out on the issue and released this statement:
I’ve been in Lahore since July as my wife and I had been expecting our second child.
I’ve received numerous requests from the media and from well-wishers worldwide asking me for my thoughts on the sad incidents that took place in the past few weeks. As a father of two little children, I pray and wish like many others that together we can build and live in a more peaceful world. I believe we owe it to our children who will shape our tomorrow.
This is the first time I have spoken on the matter. Please disregard any other words attributed to me during this time because I have not said them. I thank all my fans and fellow artists from Pakistan, India and people in general, all over the world who have shown continued support for their belief in love and understanding to unite a divisive world.
