Mahira condemns act of terror
Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, condemned for being silent on the Uri terror attack which led to heightened tensions between India and Pakistan, broke her silence saying that she “condemns any act of terror, no matter which soil it is on”. “In the five years that I have been working as an actor I believe 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,” the actress posted on her Facebook account.
“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. 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,” she further added.
The actress became household name in India thanks to her Pakistani TV show “Humsafar” , which aired on Zindagi channel. She was also in India to shoot for superstar Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees”, which is scheduled to release next year.
