(Web Desk) – Ahsan Khan who won the Best TV Actor at Lux Style Awards 2017 paid tribute to Swabi s lynched student, Mashal Khan, in his acceptance speech on Wednesday.
Khan who was the favourite for Lux Style Awards trophy this year for his path-breaking role in ‘Udaari’ mentioned Mashal Khan who was lynched by a charged mob last week over disagreement with the views he reserved.
“Television is such an effective medium and there is so much happening around you that you have to make socially aware content. Take the Mashal Khan incident for that matter,” Khan said.
The actor said that he no longer sees the industry as an entertainment medium but a vehicle of discourse.
Later today, Khan took to Instagram and stated: “The reality of Islam is that it promotes justice and preserves human rights. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) was the greatest humanitarian that ever walked on earth.”
