Pakistani Actress Saba Qamar, who has shown her presence in Bollywood with a hit film Hindi Medium opposite Irrfan Khan, has opened her heart about the humiliation she faces at international airports for being a Pakistani.
The video is going viral right now where Saba with tears in her eyes, says that it’s really humiliating to go through the checking process when the security personnel look at you with suspicion.
She narrates an incident about the time she had to take off to Tbilisi, Georgia, to shoot a song with Irrfan Khan for Hindi Medium. She said, “We were at the airport and while all my Indian crew was allowed to go, but I was detained. I was thoroughly checked because of my passport as I was from Pakistan. It was the most embarrassing and humiliating moment for me. They let me go only after full investigation including an interview.” The actress further said that she felt shameful about how her country, that she is so proud of, is seen as a terrorist state by rest of the world. Check out the video below:
It's not just #SabaQamar who feels humiliated. All #Pakistanis feel humiliated when we are considered a terrorist state, when our children are killed like flies & we can't get justice for them, when terrorist like #HafizSaeed roam around freely & we watch them helplessly. pic.twitter.com/pHalKqo7cq
