Zara was a strong, independent woman who supported her family. She stood up to trolling on her beautiful, dark skin colour. She embraced it. Let us mourn her but also celebrate her. Duas to her family. @NOMIANSARI @catwalk_cares @asimjofa #zaraabid #karachiPlaneCrash #rip pic.twitter.com/yo2mWKXklV— Frieha Altaf (@FriehaAltaf) May 23, 2020
