Kashmiri lives also matter, says Mehwish Hayat

A picture showing a three-year-old child sitting on his grandfather's dead body in Sopore town of Indian-administered Kashmir has stirred anger in the Muslim-majority region, with the family of the deceased accusing the security forces of killing the 65-year-old civilian during a gunfight.

Soon after the picture went viral on Twitter, many condemned the brutal attack.

Superstar Mehwish Hayat also took to Twitter and wrote: "If this doesn’t move you, I don't know what will," the Load Wedding actor tweeted.

"How can the world stand by quietly and allow Indian forces to act with such impunity and get away with this aggression against innocent people of Kashmir? How much longer are we going to turn a blind eye? This has to stop. Kashmiri lives also matter!"
