The anchor recently spoke up about the cruel and barbaric fat-shaming she experienced after gaining excess weight.

“I had received messages on body shaming, heard insulting words, I had endured a great many things,” Maya Khan recalled, sobbing. “I used to wonder that how can humans be so mean and self-obsessed? How can they behave like this? How can they have far too much hatred?”

“When people teased me about my obesity, I used to wonder how people could be so cruel and barbaric. Is it really a sin to be morbidly obese?” Maya asks.
