LOS ANGELES: Renowned film and TV artist Ahsan Khan has been an important representative of the Pakistani community on the international stage when he flew to the US to support an initiative by CALPAK- Alliance of Californian Americans and Pakistanis, that provides education to the under-privileged communities of Pakistan.

Ahsan Khan was awarded recognition for his services and commended for his support by the current Mayor of Los Angeles.

The certificate awarded to Ahsan Khan read as follows:

“On behalf of the City of Los Angeles, it is my pleasure to recognise Mr. Khan for promoting children’s rights. Mr. Khan’s personal commitment to raise the trauma of child abuse into a national spotlight became a turning point for a mass social awareness. He is undoubtedly a key influencer that took a strong stance through film and TV screens to shift the social responses to such tragedies. Children represent hope for a bright future that can only grow with mentorship and support.”

Founder of CALPAK shared their reasons for inviting Ahsan Khan. “We have invited Ahsan because he brought such an important topic of child sexual abuse to the national conversation through his character in ‘Udaari’. You’ve to be brave to come out and talk about these taboo topics.”
