Irrfan Khan comes to the rescue

15th March 2016

Bollywood global star Irrfan Khan is too gripped with growing concern of the flip side of mobile phones. Irrfan, who has recently moved to his new apartment in the western suburbs of Mumbai has had a recently growing concern about the ill effects of mobile towers in his area. Since he moved, there have been three new mobile towers installed near his house increasing his worry of the affect of the radiations emitting from them on the residents living in the vicinity.

Wishing to plead to the mobile operators, Irrfan joined in on a silent march held in Mumbai to send across a peace message and request to these operators to keep the towers away from residential areas, especially sensitive areas where schools and hospitals are situated.

Irrfan is known to extend his voice for issues he feels strongly about and thus, he came forward to extend his support. When asked Irrfan about this he said, "We all need mobile phones to work in this day and age. However, our Mobile Network towers need to be planned with better consideration to residential areas, parks, schools, hospitals etc. this is a dire need with today's increasing health conditions leading to complications due to the radiation. Starting with simple symptoms like headaches, dizziness up to diagnosis of cancer as witnessed in the Ushakiran building case and numerous other cases. We can only create awareness and urge people to join us in this moment."
