John Abraham Asks Indians To Stop Stereotyping Pakistanis
Indian actor John Abraham has asked compatriots to stop stereotyping Pakistanis and change their ways of thinking.
During trailer launching ceremony of his film ‘Romeo, Akbar, Walter’, John Abraham was asked about the ongoing Pakistan-Indian tensions. He said that Indian celebrities who were supporting war and anti-Pakistan rhetoric need to stop because they do not know the entire details.
‘We Need To Change The Way We Think’
“Until they or we know all the details about the situation, we should refrain from passing judgements. We also need to stop stereotyping Pakistanis because it is not like all of them are terrorists. We need to change the way we think,” John said.
He also said that he would say what he believes in and would never talk to please anyone.
“I do not say things to please people. I say what I believe in. The only war that should happen is against terrorism and not against any nation. The way Indians see Pakistanis is dangerous and needs to stop,” John Abraham said.
