“I am merely addressing this letter to you because you are the most famous Pakistani import to Bollywood. By addressing you, Fawad Khan, I want to talk to every Pakistani import to Bollywood.”
This may come as a staunch surprise for the readers, but Bollywood journalist has outdone itself this time. The site went on to criticize Mr. Khan for the work he has done and the money he has earned during his time in India. They threw mud at him by saying that he earned more in India during two years than he could have bagged in Pakistan in 10 years.
While, India promotes ‘cross-border relations’, ‘cultural exchange’, and ‘promotion of Pakistani stars’, Pakistan has continuously banned their efforts to spread ‘so-called love’ and artists. This writer has justified her stance of rebuking Fawad Khan by saying;
“We have watched in pain how you have chosen to look away when your country is inflicting pain on us. We are letting you laugh all the way to your bank account in Karachi while our soldiers are bleeding in Uri, Kashmir.
You have chosen to keep quiet about us, our suffering and our death in the hands of your Mujahideen army.
Sorry Fawad, cultural exchanges cannot happen over dead bodies of our soldiers. We cannot shake hands with your country when their hands are covered in blood of our own countrymen.”
In the end, the celebrated Indian writer writes that Fawad lacks courage and point of view and doesn’t have the power to stand against ‘Pakistani Jihadists’. So, here comes my reply to your measly, pathetic article:
Dear Senseless Bollywood Journalist;
Let me thank you first for the letter you have written and the chance you have given us to speak our hearts out. Lets begin with your point of saying that India promotes cultural diffusion. If it had been so, I would never had the fortune to come across your letter. If India has graciously showered love over Fawad Khan; then that is due to the fact that he has earned it along with any other Pakistani star. If you have given him the awards, than he has given you enough of his looks and acting, that no other of your actor would have been able to offer with such perfection.
If you blame Fawad for distancing himself from the statements related to Jihadists and Uri attack, than I must say that you have forgotten India’s contribution to Kashmir terrorism. As a writer and a journalist, I feel pity for your stance and opinion. It makes me sad to think how someone could spew so much hatred. Please do not suggest Fawad the courage to speak up, when you are using your journalistic rights so against the integrity.
In the end as a writer I would say that, while, you have great literary skills “You lack courage. You lack conviction. You lack the guts to stand up” for what is right. Please note it down for your next article that if you, in the future, dare to stand against the Pakistani celebrities or anyone; you will get an even worst response.
