Mahira Khan too breaks her silence on Uri attack, says she doesn’t “rejoice in bloodshed and war”


A day after Pakistani actor Fawad Khan broke his silence on Uri attacks, his compatriot Mahira Khan too has issued a statement condemning acts of terror ‘no matter which soil it is on.’

In a Facebook post, Mahira wrote, “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.

Like Fawad, Mahira too was targetted by the right-wing groups in India for their alleged refusal to condemn Uri attacks.

Several right-wing Hindutva groups and their supporters in the Indian TV news industry had demanded their ouster from the country until they condemned Uri attacks and Pakistan’s role in terrorist incidents.
