“There are times I get scared, not just for myself, but for others who may be trapped in a mob-like situation,” she added.

Focus on the love

She shared that she wants to focus on the love that she got from the crowd of 10,000 or more.

“While we were on our way back someone said ‘ after this we won’t have an event here’. I disagreed completely. That is not the solution. Here was a crowd of 10,000 or more… who were showing their love and excitement – the way They know best. Because I could see them I could see they didn’t know how to contain/express their excitement. Whoever the miscreant was, was 1 out of 10,000,” said the Humsafar actor.

The actor continued, “Maybe I should have gotten up and left, maybe the crowd could have been screened, maybe I should not have been put on the spot.. lots of could haves and should haves”.

“What I do feel strongly about is that – we NEED more events such as these in More cities of Pakistan. The more you are exposed the more you are aware and educated. Normalise it. And see what happens. People, cities, our culture, our understanding of each other ( which lacks), unity ( which lacks even more).. it will all flourish! I met the most amazing people. We sat together under the beautiful Quetta sky, ate delicious food.. while we shared stories, laughed and made plans for my next visit. I come back enriched,” Mahira shared.

She said she loves Quetta, and thanked them for showering “insane amount of love”.

“There shall and will be a next time.. and on every end we will be better…. Been getting a lot of msgs. Thank you for the concern and love my way. Makes me feel super grateful,” she concluded in her post.
