Actor Adnan Siddiqui occurred to be in the identical place similtaneously Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and after listening to him voice his concern for an actor, determined to show to him for assist. Mentioning the case of former cricketer Zaheer Abbas who has hoisted Pakistan’s flag excessive nationally and internationally, he requested him to offer help as a “moral obligation towards our hero”.
On Wednesday, the Mere Paas Tum Ho actor shared an outdated photograph of Abbas on the sphere and a more moderen one, side-by-side. “This is a fervent appeal to the Chief Minister of Sindh, Mr Syed Murad Ali Shah, whom I overheard telling someone to help an actor who’s going through financial trouble, at the Islamabad airport. Sir, my apology for inadvertently listening in on you but your concern for the industry really touched me. I request you to extend the same magnanimity to our cricketer Zaheer Abbas who is battling with pneumonia, kidney failure and liver malfunction at Hammersmith Hospital, UK for the last 2.5 months,” he wrote.
Siddiqui make clear all that the sportsman has completed in his profitable profession. “It is painful to see that a player who brought global recognition to the country, famously addressed as Bradman of Asia, has been awarded the prestigious Pride of Pakistan and is a cross-generational inspiration, has not received any support from his home country.”
The Dum Mastam actor feels it to be an ethical responsibility to be of his help. “I am sure the NHS must be providing necessary aid, him being a red passport holder. That, however, doesn’t absolve us from the responsibility of extending help. It is a moral obligation towards our hero,” he concluded.
