Pakistani singer and activist Fakhr-e-Alam on Monday was detained at the Russian airport as he landed at Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk as part of “Mission Parwaz”.
Actor Faysal Qureshi took to Facebook to post a message on behalf of Alam.
“Message from Fakhr-e-Alam. Bro, please tweet on my behalf. I am being detained at Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk airport because my visa expired two hours and date changed,” the post read.
“They are forcing me to turn back to Japan. I cannot go to Japan because I had a single entry visa. I appeal to the Pakistan government to request Russian government to allow me to continue my journey to Alaska,” Qureshi further wrote.
