Iqra Aziz is the latest celebrity to weigh in on the recent killing of a minor in Karachi.
Taking to Instagram, the Suno Chanda actor wrote, “Everyone is mourning death of a young boy, aged 17, just for Rs 700. Everyone is tweeting that they are sad but my question is what is the solution?”
She added, “When there is a video, so prompt punishment should be served to the culprits and people should be informed publicly about the consequences for people who would commit such heinous crimes.”
“Otherwise, children will continue to die at the hands of these few frustrated animals and we will continue to mourn,” Aziz went on. “It is not Gangs of Wasseypur or Mirzapur where you can do whatever you feel like doing, this is Naya Pakistan. Imran Khan, let everyone know!”
