The news was first revealed by the Polio PM’s taskforce Babar Bin Atta in a series of tweets where he said:

Mrs. Fawad thinks getting their daughter immunized from the UK will give the child protection against WPV1 strain. Protection against Wild Poliovirus can only be guaranteed with Oral Polio Vaccine.

He further stated:

Fawad is our pride, I request him to allow teams to vaccinate the child. Lahore has had a polio case last week, we must protect the child.

After the news was spread like fire, Fawad Khan finally broke the silence over the issue and cleared the matter. The Public Relations team of the actor issued a statement which read:

Fawad Khan has been outside Pakistan since the 13th of February where he performed at the PSL opening ceremony in Dubai and is presently in the United States. His travel history clearly demonstrates the manufactured nature of the FIR and he has just come to know of the FIR through the press.

It further stated: 

Fawad Khan fully supports the anti-polio drive and is very well aware of the guidelines of W.H.O and CDC. The vaccination of Fawad’s daughter is up to date and the record is there to support the same is available.

It added: 

Fawad reserves the right for appropriate legal redress including all such remedies against any damages caused by this event, should the FIR not be canceled.
