Sharmila Faruqui slams actors for attending award shows
KARACHI: Pakistan is going through a horrible time. Climate change is having one of biggest effects on country that only puts out less than one percent of world’s carbon. Country has biggest glaciers outside of Arctic.
Rising temperatures around world are destroying country, killing millions of people and causing billions of dollars in damage to property.
Our lack of infrastructure and bad leadership for more than 50 years have also contributed to such large-scale destruction. Celebrities from around world are also visiting Pakistan to raise awareness and help for flood victims. Angelina Jolie is also in Pakistan. After meeting flood victims and seeing destroyed areas, she said she had never seen anything like it. Sharmila Faruqui was however, disappointed. She is an active member of party in power in Pakistan, Pakistan Peoples’ Party and she is also friends with most of famous people in show business.
She wrote on Instagram that it was wrong for actors to go to an award show when their country was in trouble and famous person from another country was helping them.
