Armeena Rana Khan isn't a stranger to needless trolling. The actor, time and again, has been subjected to online bullying and criticism on social media. However, she is also not the one to let the trolls get to her.
Recently, she was honoured with a certificate of outstanding public service in the UK. While she should have been lauded for the outstanding achievement, many commented on how she wore a dress and sheer stockings. Talking about the same, the Bin Roye star shared, "I don’t understand why these nationalists, right-wingers and religious fanatics lecture me. For the last time, I do not represent you and my journey is personal."
I don’t understand why these nationalists, right wingers and religious fanatics lecture me. For the last time, I do not represent you and my journey is personal. I will do what I need to do for Pak and otherwise. MY JOURNEY with my well wishers and fans. Haters go else where. 🙏🏻— Armeena 🦋 (@ArmeenaRK) May 26, 2021
She went on to add, "I will do what I need to do for Pakistan and otherwise. My journey with my well-wishers and fans. Haters go elsewhere."
Later she tweeted on women are being subjected to harassment on the micro-blogging app.
"People harassing women and girls especially on my timelines will be reported to the police. I implore decent men and women to do the same. Please protect the vulnerable online," she said.

Khan was among those presented with special awards by the outgoing Burnley mayor. Lord Wajid Khan invited those who have had a major impact on the town and the region to Burnley Town Hall for a socially distanced presentation.
During his mayoral year Lord Khan created the Mayor’s Medal Award to acknowledge and thank unsung heroes and nominations were sent in from community members and residents.
The actor, who has 2.1 million followers on Instagram, posted, “So humbled to receive a certificate for outstanding public service at Burnley Town Hall. Thank you, Lord Wajid Khan and Lady Anam Khan for receiving my husband Fesl Khan and I today."
