Fakhr-e-Alam has come under criticism for his Gwadar trip and selling the city as a tourist spot while apparently not being cognizant of the region’s politics.

The singer has been posting video and pictures with fellow celebrities and the British High Commissioner to Pakistan enjoying at the Gwadar beach and promoting a cricket stadium there. The criticism comes amid news of fencing of Gwadar, which was opposed by Vice-Chairman Balochistan Bar Council Muneer Ahmed Kakkar and Senator Mir Kabir Mohammad Shahi. Shahi had called it a conspiracy to separate Gwadar from Balochistan.

The fencing was halted after a court ruling in a petition filed by Kakkar.

But Fakhr-e-Alam, in a video posted on his social media, said that he does not appreciate people’s political negativity and they should keep it away from his Twitter timeline. “I’m not a politician…try to do whatever we can do as citizens, contribute and make a difference.”

He added that “I don’t want to be a hostage to the past. Mistakes might have been made but that doesn’t mean that we don’t do right thing…what we can.”

He then spoke about schools in Gwadar that need improvement. The singer asked The Citizens Foundation and fellow singer Shehzad Roy to adopt three schools there.

    Lol unable to understand why shud one be ashamed of promoting tourism in gwadar… whole pakistan belongs to pakistanis….and tourism in teh end benefits locals more than federal govt…by creating employment,trade,new markets etc
