Annie Khalid and her curly locks first shot to fame when she made her singing debut with ‘Mahiya’. You either loved the song or hated it, but one thing was for sure, you could not ignore it. Mahiya became a huge success in Pakistan and even introduced her to Bollywood.

However, this time, Annie made headlines for a whole new reason. The curly locks had been a victim of labels and judgement for her divorce and 2nd marrige. Being the strong woman that she is, and having enough of the bullying, Annie decided to shut her haters once and for all.
Never judge a book by its cover, plus there’s more to a story than one probably knows. Sick and tired of the abuse and ridicule, Annie poured her heart out in her Instagram post.
Annie Khalid Shuts Haters With An Emotional Yet Powerful Instagram Post
So I'm writing this post with tears in my eyes because I am sick and tired of the abuse I get on social media for my second marriage. YES I married AGAIN! Why do people write " how many times you gonna get married" "kitni dafa shadi karo gi" "maneater" "vulgar woman" "wahiyaat aurat" What sin have I committed? Our religion permits us to marry again after being divorced, our beautiful Hazrat Khadijah was married 3 times, her third marriage was to Prophet Muhammad PBUH. Who is better than her? Who is better than Our beloved Prophet Muhammad PBUH? NOBODY. What bullshit Pakistani culture we have where divorcee women are scandalised and stigmatised in our society. They become "black sheep" or "damaged goods". At the time of the Sahaba, men would stand in line to marry divorced women because they knew of the immense reward it was in the eyes of God. But in our day & age we are instead ostracised and looked down upon. You men who comment under my posts have some shame, nobody wants their marriage to break, but if it does then what can you do? Would you be happier to see me alone and unhappy? Would that make you happy? What hurts the most is seeing women say horrible things too. I would expect girls to be more empathetic and understanding but how SAD that you also hurt me with your brutal comments. Remember, this could happen to your mother or your sister, this could even happen to YOU. I am sorry for this long post but I had to speak up not just for myself but for all the girls out there who have been divorced. Can I also add how I always read that it must have been My FAULT, something bad I must have done got me divorced. Why is the girl always blamed, WHY? Thank you to my husband Saad who married me knowing my past and not once brought it up or used it against me. Instead loves me unconditionally for who I am and not what I am. Ok I feel better now. Peace
We live in a society where women are often judged and called names if she can’t find happiness in her first marriage.
“What sin have I committed? Our religion permits us to marry again after being divorced, our beautiful Hazrat Khadijah was married 3 times, her third marriage was to Prophet Muhammad PBUH. Who is better than her? Who is better than Our beloved Prophet Muhammad PBUH? NOBODY.” , wrote a heartbroken Annie.
“Nobody wants their marriage to break, but if it does then what can you do? Would you be happier to see me alone and unhappy? Would that make you happy?”, she added.
Live and let live people. The world is already full of enough hate and horror.
“Allah SWT created Khulla and Talaaq, it’s not a human innovation. Khulla is in the favour of a woman who can rightfully choose to end a marriage if she feels she cannot take it any further. These are the rights given to us by Islam.” Annie further added in a Facebook post.
More power to you Annie! We wish you a happy marriage and successful life ahead.
