Sheheryar Munawar responded to some critics of the show “Sinf-e-Ahan” about how it is not representing the different ethnicities of Pakistan properly as it did not include a person from a Sindh background. The show reflects on the lives of six women from different background who join the military, and Sheheryar is set to do a small cameo in the upcoming episode.

The actor announced his appearance in a Facebook post, and his comments were flooded with critics who criticized the show for failing to offer proper representation of women from all ethnic minorities within Pakistan, to which Sheheryar responded by saying that the show had done a good job by keeping in mind that women get proper representation

“I believe all female characters are representing Pakistan and that is what matters the most”

While some users lauded Sheheryar Munawar for his statement, others disagreed with him because they felt that diversity on the show was not emphasized enough and it would have helped by seeing a Sindhi girl along with the rest of the women fight for a chance to enter the army.

But Sheheryar also responded to a user by saying that users were nitpicking things to criticize about the show and forgetting the larger picture that it was about representing all women from Pakistan

“”I am really surprised at some of the comments here and really disappointed by the scattered mindsets of some of our people!” he wrote. “Rise above your regional biases and always see Pakistan as one unit instead of segregating it on the basis of region, caste, colour and religion! Lastly, do your homework before spreading anarchy amongst the masses! Always focus on the actual message being delivered instead of trying to deviate from it.”

Do you agree with him? Do let us know in the comments!
