Popular Pakistani actress turned TV host Juggun Kazim has been grabbing headlines ever since she entered into the showbiz industry.

However, she often becomes the target of boy shaming from her followers which is quite disturbing.

Recently, the actress took to her social media accounts and expressed her anger over facing body-shaming during her pregnancy as well.

She wrote:

 Until a few days ago, I was pregnant. For some reason, I gained a lot of weight really really quickly. What shocked me was how much I started getting fat shamed. One lady said “lagta hai Lahore ki hawa laag gaye tumhain”. Other women just told me bluntly that I had become a bit too “healthy.” Till now, I wasn’t ready to share that I was expecting a baby because my pregnancies have generally been precarious.

She further added:

Last week I had a miscarriage. My doctor has now told me that this time it was quite serious and that there had been a lot of internal bleeding. I took a day off to mourn but then went back to work because, well, what else does one do? And the day after I resumed work, somebody again commented on how I was looking “extra healthy.” We need to stop fat shaming other people.

She ended up by saying:

Yes, some people need to be encouraged to lead a more active lifestyle. But unless you are somebody’s mother or sister, don’t tell them what you think of their body.

Life is short. Let’s try and live ours with kindness.

Here’s her post!

A humble request!!! Until a few days ago, I was pregnant. For some reason, I gained a lot of weight really really quickly. What shocked me was how much I started getting fat shamed. One lady said "lagta hai Lahore ki hawa laag gaye tumhain". Other women just told me bluntly that I had become a bit too “healthy.” Till now, I wasn't ready to share that I was expecting a baby because my pregnancies have generally been precarious. Last week I had a miscarriage. My doctor has now told me that this time it was quite serious and that there had been a lot of internal bleeding. I took a day off to mourn but then went back to work because, well, what else does one do? And the day after I resumed work, somebody again commented on how I was looking “extra healthy.” We need to stop fat shaming other people. People who are overweight know they are overweight. Their weight gain may be for any number of reasons, some desirable and some not. Yes, some people need to be encouraged to lead a more active lifestyle. But unless you are somebody’s mother or sister, don’t tell them what you think of their body. Life is short. Let’s try and live ours with kindness.
