Here's the tweet by the Ehd-e-Wafa actor:
Statelessness is a man-made problem. People are denied the right to identity which is as basic as having a life to live. Imagine when you cant call home; Home. But they live it up and down through it, like Heroes.@Refugees @UNHumanRights pic.twitter.com/5uwPj3yVUS— Zara Noor Abbas Siddiqui (@ZaraNoorAbbas) November 21, 2019
