Asim Azhar wants mental health advocates to practice what they preach

The singer has spoken out against online bullying


Entertainment Desk June 27, 2020

Sushant Singh Rajput's tragic suicide earlier this month ignited a conversation around mental health, with many public figures going on social media to share their two cents. Pakistani singer Asim Azhar had an interesting take on the matter.

The Jo Tu Na Mila singer talked about how people should also practice what they preach.

"Kamaal hai waise pehle depression aur mental health pe lectures dete hain aur kuch din baad khud kisi ko depression ka shikaar bana dete hain apni bullying aur nafrat se ( It's funny how they first give lectures on depression and mental health and after a few days they make others a target of depression through hate and bullying )," Asim tweeted.

In the days after Sushant's passing many local celebrities have used social media as a platform to raise awareness around mental health.

Model and actor Amna Ilyas took to Twitter saying, “If a person has fame and money, it doesn’t mean he is the happiest of all! One in four people in the world are affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. Please take care of the people around you. Sushant Sing Rajput, rest in peace.”



Mawra Hocane wrote, “It’s so important for all of us to be kind, to be compassionate, to be polite. We all have a role to play in each other’s lives. Let’s all have a big heart for one another. Let’s please be kind. Rest in peace, Sushant Singh Rajput.”



Mahira Khan emphasised on the same while calling out the people who think being ‘straight up’ is ‘cool’. “Why have we made it cool to be ‘straight up’? That isn’t honesty; it’s downright apathy! Be kind and proud. Wear it like a badge. Be kind. Be kind. Be kind. There is much more to people than they show. Be kind!” the Verna actor said.
