Alizeh Shah, a Pakistani actor, urged Pakistanis to learn the “true” meaning of independence.

On Saturday, as the country celebrated its 75th Independence Day, a number of celebrities prayed for the country’s prosperity.

However, in light of recent rape incidents and celebrities’ inability to dress as they choose, the Ehd-e-Wafa star questioned whether the country is truly independent.

“Pakistan got its freedom on 14 August 1947 and as today is the 14th of August,” Alizeh began in her Instagram clip.

“I can’t seem to understand whom should I wish Jashne-Azadi. To those rapists roaming freely outside because they are the one’s with freedom, and because of them, many girls cannot step outside of their houses or go to work. The inability to travel with your family on the highway. As well as the not getting the freedom to wear whatever they want not just to regular people but the celebrities as well,” Alizeh asked her fans.

Fans should not troll or criticize celebrities for being themselves, according to Alizeh.

“So, the power of social media which we use so blatantly, why don’t we try to make a difference this time? What we can do is be kind, do charity. Even if we want to say something bad, refrain from doing so. So many people are killed because of social media, so many people suffer through depression. So please make sure to use social media in a manner that doesn’t hurt anyone. I have been through it, and I know how difficult it can be.

Alizeh’s statement came after the actress was repeatedly shamed for her fashion choices on social media.

“Everybody has a right to live, not just you. Think about it,” she said her final words before signing off.
