She further added, “I stand for this cause, especially colourism, because I faced it. I don’t want any other girl to face it. I usually don’t put filters on my pictures I take them in the light.”
Taking about Amna Haq controversy, she said that many people acknowledged her point. Amna said that till now we take the name of someone referring to his or her’s physical appearance and she has admitted it. And now she intentionally doesn’t do it.
“Our nation is illiterate and they have no awareness, the harasser is mentally sick, it isn’t necessary that he arouses after watching TV or things on phone, he has filth in his brain.”
