Social media, despite being a convenient place to share your life, also comes with its own disadvantages. And when it comes to celebrities, nobody is free from cyber-bullying or incessant trolling. Hadiqa Kiani was the latest celebrity who had to face some unpleasant comments, and she took to her Instagram to share her insight into the whole ordeal.
Much to everyone’s disappointment, an Instagram user commented on one of her posts, calling her an ‘aunty’ and ‘suggesting’ it’s her age to remember God. Kiani shared screenshots of those comments and added how women need to raise daughters who respect and love other women.
“Very unfortunate that the ageist hater comments always come from girls. I’ve blocked out her name because I don’t want anyone bullied but we have to do a better job raising our daughters to love themselves and other women.”
She further added the fact that everyone is going to age and get judged over it, but the least we can do is not spread hate while we’re at it.
“Heads up ladies, you’re all going to age, you’re all going to gain a few pounds or lose a few pounds, get a few wrinkles and despite your success and independence, society will try to judge you and tell you to conform to its standards. But at least as women, we can’t limit one another any longer. Love one another and uplift one another. It’s the least you can do because one day, you’ll be the one needing support and no one will be there for you.”
Moreover, she also addressed the comment which suggested she should be remembering God and explained how its something that needs to be done at every age. And that society should not expect women to stay inactive once they cross a certain age. YOU GO, GIRL.
“And as far as the Allah Allah karne ka waqt hai comment, you should remember Allah at every age,” added Kiani. “The idea that you are supposed to just die and get locked in a house after age 35 as a woman in this country needs to end. If Allah gives me the energy, the strength and the motivation to be this active when I’m 55, 65 or 75 and if I want to be this active, then I will be. Society should not dictate how you choose to live your life.”
Kiani’s stance on the entire debacle and how she handled it so gracefully is truly commendable. We wish people would choose to be careful with their words, instead of spewing unnecessary hate all over. But nevertheless, MAD RESPECT FOR HER!
