Celebrities-ask-for-security-after-amjad-sabri's-death

The overall artist community is gried stricken by Amjad Sabri’s death.

“There is no one to take care of our safety in any way whatsoever,” said Fakhr-e-Alam. “The ‘high-profile’ government officials get away with having hefty protocol because they claim that they are public figures and their lives are at stake at all instances, but what about people like us? Realistically, we are under a more vivid lime light,” the singer said.

In the video, Fakhr-e-Alam said that politicians either provide artists with bullet proof cars or give up their own.

He further added that it is evident from Amjad Sabri’s massive funeral that he was a ‘high profile’ human being, and most of the artists belonging from the entertainment industry are equally famous as these VIP politicians are.

“Under the same logic provided to us (citizens), we believe we are more prominent figures than you are and we deserve the same bulletproof cars and the same security measures,” he said, “If you are unable to provide us with the same then you must return your escort and protocol back to the government.”

“To feel that you and us are the same on Karachi’s vulnerable streets, you must take this action, and if you fail to comply then we will begin to intensify our protest.”

The government did not give any response as of yet!

Many anchor persons and journalists have also collaborated, showing their support on Twitter.
