Fawad Khan Breaks Silence On Uri Attacks And Finally Gives A Statement

Post the Uri Attacks, there has been a call to ban Pakistani artists from the Indian film industry. Numerous artists from Bollywood have spoken out about the ban, some being in favour of it while some against it. However, none of the Pakistani actors themselves have spoken out about the matter until today.

Fawad Khan just released a statement on Facebook speaking about the attacks and the controversy that followed:

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.

 

Although Fawad Khan has broken his silence regarding the matter, he hasn’t provided any direct reference to the Uri attacks. We do hope he provides more clarity about his stand regarding this matter.
