Armeena Rana Khan: BRIDAL DREAMS, Bridal Couture Week – The Gold Edition takes place at the Palm, in Karachi

Like many other female artists in the entertainment industry, Armeena Khan too has been a subject of utter hate and online abuse.

But the Janaan actor has had enough and has shut down haters in one epic post!

Armeena took to Instagram to address the issue and posted a picture of screenshots of abusive comments.

Hi guys and girls. I have a few q's for you all. I am trying to understand the mentality of the Pakistani public. Above is the collage of the comments that I have received over the last few days. I want to ask, (1) Why is it that the Pakistani female actresses are subjected to this poison? Secondly, I also note that a lot of these are by females. Why is that? Why is it that Pakistani females wish to attack Pakistani actresses in such a vicious manner. What have we done to you except entertain and create an industry that will benefit the economy, culture and arts of Pakistan. How is that a crime? If you can do better please show us your work that will blow our efforts out of the water. Thirdly, please help me understand how can this internet "terrorism" be tackled? Guess what, I too have BAD days. I am a person with real feelings. I work hard. There is a big part of my life that involves running a business, being a daughter, a sister, an aunt as well as helping those who are less fortunate. Can you imagine, when you are having a particularly down day and you get to read this. I understand that I signed up for criticism when I became an actress but nowhere did I sign up for abuse. You are welcome to critique our work in a polite manner but I won't allow you to question my religion, my morals OR my freedom to choose Now, On behalf of all my fellow actresses, though we don't expect praises 100% of the time and welcome CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM, we don't deserve such disrespect or bullying. I've seen the same girls and boys go to other international celebs and kiss their backsides as if they are from another planet. Why the hypocrisy? Finally, I am not focussing only on the negative. I am fighting for what's right. I urge you to think before you hit that "send" button. Thanks for your time. Armeena Khan

“Now, On behalf of all my fellow actresses, though we don’t expect praises 100% of the time and welcome CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM, we don’t deserve such disrespect or bullying.

Kudos to the star for speaking out against the hate many actors receive unnecessarily!

    They are just Artists doing what they can to earn their bread and butter.
    People need to stop associating them with high morals or anything associated with religiosity.
    Actors and singers in general; are pure entertainers and must not be taken seriously.Recommend

    Absolutely right.
    Rather than being moral police’ try to impose religion in your and your beloved ones lives and then preach others. And if you hate it dont see or follow her. Recommend

    @Miss Syed:
    people like you never cease to amaze. When it comes to other women : you say let them earn their bread and butter and tomorrow if that same person’s daughter, sister, cousin, etc. wants to do the same, then no way, its degrading work, its desperation, don’t do it, do you want this to be your legacy in this world, etc etc.
    It is the height of selfishness to want for other human beings what you would NEVER want for yourself. Recommend

    Who is she? Celebrities are public properties and fame is what they earn through public opinion. Instead of addressing the masses, she should better focus on her work. Celebrities across the world face such criticism and there is nothing like positive criticism, this is public opinion. Recommend

    @Faisal:
    Instead of imposing our wants on others… including our sisters, brothers, sons or daughters… Let’s make them capable and rational so they can make their own choices with wisdom, and if their passion is to be a model or actor, I will support them, and if that turns out to be a mistake, I’ll still support them.Recommend
