Recently, actor Fahad Mirza celebrated his 40th birthday which was attended by many renowned celebrities from Pakistani showbiz industry including Sheheryar Munawar who has now released an apology for violating Covid-19 SOPs after receiving online criticism.
Munawar took to twitter and shared, “Last week, I went to wish my neighbour on his birthday on an invitation I had accepted two weeks prior. Not expecting the crowd, I wished him and left within five minutes of being there. In a candid moment, I was asked to take my mask off and pose for a picture.”
He continued, “Rightly so, I was called out for doing that [taking the mask off] and not following the SOPs. There is no justification for my actions and I stand corrected. I apologise for my ignorance, lapse in judgment and lack of better sense.”
He added, “A big thank you to my social media family for keeping my moral compass in check. We owe each other as much. Times are tough and we must all follow SOPs outlined by the government. My prayers go out to the families affected.”
