Fahad Mustafa has donated Rs 20 lakh for a Hindu minor boy suffering from thalassemia during a live transmission.
A video recently went viral of a Ramzan live transmission hosted by Waseem Badami and Iqrar-ul-Hasan where JDC Foundation’s Zafar Abbas came along with a Hindu doctor whose minor son was suffering from thalassemia.
During the show, the father told how he has helped everyone and there were times when he treated without taking fees but when he came to know about his son’s deteriorating health, even most of the charitable organizations backed by stating that the charity is for Muslims only.
According to the father, his son has only 15 months left to get proper treatment after that it can get complicated which costs Rs 40 lakh (4 million). He also lamented how there are no basic medical facilities for minorities of Pakistan.
However, during the live show, actor turned producer and now one of the leading game show hosts Fahad Mustafa called and pledged to donate Rs 20 lakh at the very moment. The Jawaani Phir Nahi Aani actor also requested others to donate for the kid to meet the required amount.
When Iqrar asked about the inspiration behind his decision, the actor said: “I don’t know, I don’t usually feel that way. But when I saw him, I had to call. May Allah give him long life and Allah will definitely give long life to this kid.”
