The actor took to Instagram to lend her support for Imran Khan.
Sanam Saeed rightly pointed out, that the amount of energy spent on political wars, could easily be utilized elsewhere in a more productive manner.
Where is the humanity? Where is the sanity ? These selfish ego wars need to end ! Our Country is disintegrating day by day. All this energy and time needs to be spent else where ! Putting innocent lives at risk is unacceptable! https://t.co/dKCQd7J8sz

Asim Azhar didn’t hold back either in pointing out how the arrest warrant against Imran Khan and the subsequent chaos is detrimental for the country as a whole.
Arresting or hurting a leader like Imran Khan will do nothing but create a civil war & damage the country even more. Establishment should be smart enough to avoid this damage & respectfully hold elections. Vote se naa darain.
