Asim Azhar has spoken truth to power.
For the politicians squabbling with one another, the 22-year-old actor has some words of wisdom: stop fighting, get to work.
“The amount of energy & time our political figures put into defaming each other & talking about each other’s flaws, specially here on Twitter is baffling,” he wrote on the social media platform.
“If only they could spend half of that on trying to fix our infrastructure..Kasam se mera mulk behtari ki raah par ajayega (our country would head towards prosperity)."
Asim’s advise applies across the board to all political parties in Pakistan, which spend an inordinate amount of time holding the other responsible for the country’s failure.
Previously, the actor, who is known to wade into political debates from time to time, praised Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly.
“Thank you my Prime Minister for saying everything you said on the biggest platform. Thank you for standing with peace and justice,” he tweeted.
