Actress Amna Ilyas jumps into debate on colourism

The debate around colourism has always been rife. From celebs to influencers, many had spoken up about the usage of fairness creams and its obsession with lighter skin. 

 Following this, Amna Ilyas, who worked her way up the fashion and entertainment ladder carrying nothing but her proud and brown skin with relentless talent, took to Twitter with advice. "My fellow colleagues in the industry, time for promoting fairness creams for the sake of money and greed has long passed," she wrote.

"Our influence as public figures is meant to make others feel beautiful, not less beautiful. Shame on everyone, who still subscribes to this way of thinking!"

The actor had previously taken to Instagram to share a beautiful portrait of herself along with the caption, "My dark skin won’t be the reason I fall. No matter the shackles of colonisation or the micro-aggressions, I’ll set my goals and achieve them all."
