Mawra revealed that she spoke to a friend of Anam’s who told her how deeply Anam was affected by social media trolling and bullying. “She was suffering from depression and the world was ruthless regardless. I wish she was stronger, but I also wish that we were kinder,” she added.
Momina Mustehsan too composed her thoughts in an open letter to the deceased.
Addressing Anam, she wrote, “Dear Anam, I’m sorry you had to give up. I’m sorry I didn’t understand the intensity of how much you were hurting. I know you were trying your best to be positive and you were a champ. I was super proud of how far you had come in the 9 years I had known you and the person you had grown to become. I swear you had the strength to keep fighting back, staying strong, and standing tall.”
Momina further advised not to pay attention to hate speech and online bullying.
She posted a picture of herself on Instagram and wrote: “This is a picture of me from when I was going through turmoil not very long ago. It happens to the best of us. Mental health is just as important as physical health, and we all hit points in our lives sometimes when all seems to be falling out of our control.”
