Hadiqa Kiani believes age is just a number and has had it with trolls and their cruel comments.

When a woman commented on one of her Instagram posts saying, "Aunty, ab tumhari Allah Allah karne ki age hai", Kiani took to Insta stories to share her frustration and give her two cents on the matter.

She started off with explaining how she was disappointed that these ageist comments always seem to come from other women: "Very unfortunate that the ageist hater comments always come from girls. I've blocked out her name because I don't want anyone bullied but we have to do a better job raising our daughters to love themselves and other women."

The singer added, "Heads up ladies, you're all going to age, you're all going to gain a few pounds or lose a few pounds, get a few wrinkles and despite your success and independence, society will try to judge you and tell you to conform to their standards. But at least as women, we can't limit one another any longer."

She went on to say that women should stop letting society dictating the way they live their lives and become aware of the sexism we seem to have internalised, which pits women against one another.

"The idea that you're supposed to just die and get locked in a house after age 35 as a woman in this country needs to end. If Allah gives me the energy, strength and motivation to be this active when I'm 55, 65 or 75 and if I want to be this active, then I will," she wrote.

"Love one another and uplift one another. It's the least you can do because one day, you'll be the one needing support and no one will be there for you."

She signed off with this little piece of advice:
