Juggun Kazim, the actor, and host took to social media and shared a terrible experience she had while she was expecting a child and random women started body-shaming her; because she gained a lot of weight.
It is so heartbreaking to see people commenting on women’s appearances all the time without even realizing what she must be going through.
In her recent post, Juggun revealed that she had a miscarriage last week and this time she didn’t want to open up about her pregnancy because her pregnancies had always been so precarious.
Because of her pregnancy she has put on some weight which led people to proceed to fat-shame her. Some said, “Lagta hai Lahore ki hawa lag gaye tumhain”, while others called her “healthy”.

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.
The actor went on and made a humble request to everyone to stop fat-shaming other people. There are a lot of reasons due to which people put on weight. Some are desirable and some not. Fat-shaming someone might shake her confidence therefore, it needs to stop now!
