Fawad Khan Issues Official Statement Amid Indo-Pak Controversy

India has been reeling under the attack on its soldiers at Uri and a subsequent counter attack, war of words and strained relationship with Pakistan. Caught in the midst of this political storm, Fawad Khan has had a pretty harrowing couple of weeks.

While many accusations and pent up anger were hurled at Fawad, he maintained a stoic silence over the entire issue until recently, when he released his official statement to clear the air about where he stands.

The statement reads:

“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 form 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.”

Fawad had been accused of speaking against India and belittling Bollywood. The sources of these claims could not be clearly established and they appeared to be nothing more than rumor mongering. Perhaps, this is why the actor felt it important to make his stand clear.

In our humble opinion, we hope that the two countries can sort out their differences without art and artistes having to suffer in the process.

On another note, Fawad and his wife Sadaf became proud parents to a baby girl on October 1 2016.
