Hope we can live in a peaceful world: Fawad on Indo-Pak issue
Reacting for the first time on the controversy surrounding the demand for a ban on Pakistani artistes in Bollywood, Actor Fawad Khan on Friday said that as a father of two children, he prays and wishes for a “more peaceful world”. The 34-year-old actor said he left India in July not because of any threat but to be with his wife, Sadaf, who was expecting their 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,” Fawad wrote on his Facebook.
“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,” Fawad wrote. The actor dismissed reports of his alleged anti-India comments, saying he is speaking on the matter for the first time. “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,” the actor said. “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,” he wrote.
There has been a growing demand for a ban on Pakistani artistes by certain sections in India in the wake of Uri terror attack.
