Pakistani actor Fawad Khan broke his silence for the first time on demands that Pakistani actors be banned from working in India, but social media heavily panned his stance as being diplomatic.
“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,” Fawad wrote on Facebook on Friday, in the wake of growing ban demands against Pakistani artists after 19 Indian armymen were killed in the Uri terror attack recently.

However, soon after Fawad’s post, #Insensitive started trending.
“As father of 2 children actor #FawadKhan says he prays & wishes for peace. Indian soldiers burnt alive in #UriAttacks were also parents (sic),” tweeted @chitraSD.
Filmmaker Ashok Pandit was also among those critical. “Fawad Khan remains silent on #UriAttacks & then says let’s unite the divisive World. #Insensitive (sic),” wrote @ashokpandit.
“Basicaly fawad khan is saying FO politely (sic),” @OneTipOneHand_ tweeted.

Others felt Fawad had carried out a formality to ensure that his upcoming movie Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, directed by Karan Johar, gets released on Diwali.
The Johar biggie, co-starring Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan and Anushka Sharma along with Fawad Khan, faces boycott by the exhibitors.
