The Muslim Vibe called Mehwish as “passionate and articulate” who is making a considerable difference with her activism across the globe and shattering stereotypes relating to Muslim women.
“Mehwish has recently hit the headlines for advocating positivity and representation and peace in Pakistan,” the publication wrote, defining her.
The actress recently made waves on international level after her vocal advocacy for peace amid India-Pakistan tensions over Kashmir issue. She called out Bollywood celebrities for warmongering and said that it is irresponsible to issue statements like these knowing the influence you have.
