The leaked video is being taken out of context. I’ve been the most vocal on #Kashmir issue globally & will continue to do so. I have big plans for next steps. This was a charity event & was requested by the PR not to be political ¬ distract from the orphans I was there to help

You got Tamgha-e-Imtiaz but don't deserve it. Your silence speaks when you don't utter a single word for innocent Muslims of #Kashmir.

So you gave more importance to PR then the issue of #Kashmir? You surely don't deserve "Sitara e Imtiaz". It requires bravery and selflessness and you for the sake of your own PR remained silent on #Kashmir issue. Disappointing

Mehwish hayat's PR company barred her from commenting on Kashmir? Is it because multinational brands with operations in India wont want her as a model if she talks about Kashmir?
