“They treat Pakistanis like dogs."

Veteran actor Mehmood Aslam shared his deep affection for Pakistan while expressing his profound concerns about the state of the nation.

He said: “The Pakistan that I grew up in, was the Pakistan that you could sacrifice your life for.

“Pakistan had so much respect. But this gradually vanished. There is nothing to be proud of in Pakistan now.”

Mehmood lamented the condition of Pakistan’s global reputation, particularly highlighting the dismal ranking of the Pakistani passport.

He mentioned that it is the fourth lowest in the world.

This low ranking, according to Mehmood, leads to humiliating experiences for Pakistanis travelling abroad.

They often face mistreatment and indignities at international airports.

Mehmood continued: “They treat Pakistanis like dogs. Your rulers themselves say ‘beggars can’t be choosers’.”

His criticism extended to the overall governance and functionality of Pakistan.

He expressed deep sorrow over the inefficacies and failures that have plagued the nation.

Mehmood Aslam’s words reflected a profound sense of disillusionment with the rulers and their inability to address the country’s pressing problems.

The conversation took a comparative turn when Mehmood discussed the disparities between Pakistani and Indian actors.

He spoke about fellow actor Adnan Shah Tipu, recalling one discussion.

Mehmood Aslam pointed out the significant differences in support and recognition that actors receive in the two neighbouring countries.

He argued that Indian actors benefit from substantial support from their industry and nation.

This elevates their status and enables them to achieve greater fame and respect.

Mehmood suggested that if Pakistani artists were given similar financial compensation and security, they too could reach the heights of stardom.

He highlighted the exploitation faced by Pakistani artists and claimed fair compensation and adequate support could significantly enhance their standing.

Adnan concurred with Mehmood Aslam’s assessment, acknowledging the challenges faced by Pakistani actors and the potential for greater success if these issues were addressed.

Mehmood Aslam’s words resonated with the public, who widely shared his concerns about Pakistan’s declining state.

A user wrote:

“Not a word this man spoke was exaggerated or wrong. This is exactly what is happening to Pakistan now.

“There was once a time when we used to be so proud to be Pakistanis but I don’t think it will ever happen again.”

One said: “It must be so gut-wrenching for Mehmood Aslam to see Pakistan at its best and then him witnessing its worst.”

Another stated: “It is all due to the rulers. Everything is fixable, but they choose not to fix it.”
