KARACHI: Following the escalation of tensions between Pakistan and India, many artistes on both sides of the borders have aired their opinions and advocated peace.
Keeping her voice loud and sane, actress Mahira Khan too took to her official Facebook account on Saturday to condemn the growing violence and conflict between the two neighbouring countries and called for peace.
She began her post with, “In the 5 years that I have been working as an actor I believe that I have tried my best to keep my country’s respect intact – by being a professional and by representing Pakistan here and elsewhere to the best of my abilities.”
“As a Pakistani and citizen of the world I strongly condemn any act of terror, any loss of human life no matter which soil it is on. I will not rejoice in bloodshed and war. I will always hope for and dream of a world where my child can live without it, and always plead with everyone to imagine a peaceful world,” she added.
Continuing her peace-oriented post and thanking her supporters, she further added, “It has also been in this time my faith in saner minds and goodness has been restored, thank you for the messages, love and support.
Hoping and praying for peace always.”
Mahira Khan’s post came on the heels of Fawad Khan’s who too had maintained silence so far, before giving a similar message and denying any other reports that may have quoted him speaking on the matter. –Newsmedialive.
