Saddam Hussain is a real hero: Ahad Raza Mir

Pakistan's superstar Ahad Raza Mir is highlighting the story of a ‘hero’, Saddam Hussain, who is welcoming Sikh pilgrims from across the border with open arms.

The Parwaaz Hai Junoon actor shared the endearing video on his Instagram that shows the heartening exchange between an Indian journalist and Saddam Hussain who was the driver escorting the incoming worshippers to Kartarpur.

Ahad is all praises for Hussain, saying" This is what every Pakistani feels and stands for: Compassion, humanity and peace."

“Saddam Hassan really sums up the fact that Pakistan welcomes everyone. You are a real hero!” he added.

Ahad also asked his followers for Hussain's contact details so he could thank him for his love and hospitality, “Can anyone help me get Saddam’s contact details? Want to meet and thank him for being such a good ambassador of our country.”

In the video, the pilgrim named Ravinder Singh, who initially uploaded the video, was seen asking Hussain to share his feelings regarding the landmark gesture by the Pakistani government for the Sikhs across the border.

Hussain can be heard saying: “I don’t think you are as happy as me,” Hussain replied smiling, “The way my eyes have welled up with tears. I am very happy.”

“Seeing you all, I have that feeling that one has when one go for Hajj. This is the same experience for you,” he added.
