Resham Statement & Believes Depression Doesn’t Exist:
The video went viral in which resham stated this bold statement, it has grabbed everyone’s attention all over social media.
Sami discussed a topic during the transmission, “So as we were talking about earlier, these days, people are very depressed. People get lost in their worries because they don’t have a relationship with God, so they get taken in by their worries,” said Khan.
In response, Resham stated that “I’ve always said, I believe depression does not exist. Depression is a distance from God. My sister raised me – I grew up without parents – so whenever I missed my parents, even though the way baji raised me, she never let me feel their absence, I would go to God. Whenever you feel depressed, go to God, cry in prayer -“

Netizens React Over Rehsam’s Statement
One of the users tweeted, “Literally have no words,” wrote doctor and human rights activist, Maarib (Reformistan).
“It physically hurts to hear this. I cannot begin to imagine how harmful, irresponsible, and dangerous this is. Why do these [people] get invited to misguide entire hordes of [people] in a country that already excessively trivializes mental health?”
“It isn’t Resham’s fault, you need to have an educated well-versed person to know that these [diseases] exist and their treatment is like any other disease and that through medicine,” stated yet another user.
The user wrote, “This is nothing but a flagrant display of ignorance that perpetuates the stigma surrounding a debilitating illness. Resham needs to receive adequate education to comprehend the intricacies of mental disorders.”
Resham has been part of various controversial statements, years back when Meesha Shafi’s case was the main attention, her stance over the case made people uncomfortable.
