Pakistan’s famed sister duo Urwa and Mawra Hocane have earned the wrath of social media users after an ignorant statement regarding mental health.

A video of the sisters from an interview at a local channel has been making rounds on the internet where the two can be seen engrossed in discussion about nutrition, food and how it impacts a person’s mental health.

The statement, however, did not go well with netizens who called the two out over their apprenticed views in country already at odds with accepting mental health as a colossal issue.

“What you put into your body greatly determines your mental health as well,” says Urwa.

She adds in a rather condescending tone: “These days there are so many problems about depression, mental disease, it’s all because of food. There is no other reason.”

Mawra chimes in saying: “It’s what you put in your body.”

The comments sparked a turmoil on social media with many calling them out.
