The Uri attacks that took place on 18th September killed 18 of our soldiers, which further strained relations between India and Pakistan and things took a downward spiral when Pakistani actors were given two days to leave the country. Fawad Khan recently released a statement, and fellow Pakistani actress Mahira followed suit with the following message:
"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. 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. Hoping and praying for peace always. MK.
