Armeena Khan calls out western media for using word 'terrorism' for Muslims only
LAHORE - Pakistani artist Armeena Rana Khan has condemned the ghastly attacks on Muslims in New Zealand's Christchurch mosques in her latest tweet.
Coming forth deeming the incident a 'mass slaughter of Muslims', the Janaan starlet said that the usage of terrorism affiliated with Muslims is extremely condemnable.

"No guys, 49 people didn’t “die” they were slaughtered in cold blood by a terrorist. Terrorism isn’t just reserved for Muslims. You need to fix the wording and don’t downplay this pls," she posted.
