She cited the instance of brotherly relations demonstrated between the Ansars of Medina and Muhajirin of Makka. She acknowledged that Pakistan living up to the tradition set by Islam has been immensely servicing their brothers from cross-border Afghanistan for decades. “To this day, the nation has kept these traditions alive”, said Mahira Khan.

Khan captioned the video “They’ve been denied a home.. but we haven’t denied them hope. Pakistan has been hosting millions of Afghan refugees over several years and continues to do so, we have given them a home within our motherland.”

The video also stated the fact that 85% of these Afghan refugees were denied shelters in developed countries like North Korea and United States of America. Hence, few other developing countries besides Pakistan have hosted a large influx of Afghan immigrants.

In the following tweet, Khan quoted an alarming fact developed by UN on the rate of migration worldwide.

“More than70 million people were forced to flee in 2018. That’s one person every two seconds who have been denied a home. Please join me and take a #StepWithRefugees this #WorldRefugeeDay, wrote Mahira Khan.

Mahira Khan is the Goodwill ambassador of United Nations in Pakistan. She visited the refugee camps in Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa last year with United Nations High Commissioner For Refugees Chief Filippo Grandi, who was in Pakistan for a three-day visit along with UN Humanitarian Chief Mark Lowcock. The actress felt happy after meeting Afghan refugees and stated that she wants to help them personally.
