Naime, pojedinci su se obrušili na Esmu s navodima kako ona ne može biti Miss Australije zbog toga što je muslimanka. Organizatori su dobili brojne pozive građana koji su tražili da joj se oduzme titula.
25-godišnja ljepotica koja se trenutno priprema za izbor za Miss svijeta koji se održava 11. studenog u Kini, za Daily Telegraph komentirala je napade. "Opraštam tim ljudima. Mislim da svi ti navodi dolaze isključivo iz nerazumijevanja. Nadam se da ću srušiti takve barijere među ljudima tako što ću biti ono što jesam”, rekla je.

Pozvala je na više tolerancije za muslimane u Australiji, no napomenula je da ne smatra da je islam definirao njezin identitet.
Esma je rođena u izbjegličkom kampu nakon što su joj roditelji tokom rata ranih devedesetih pobjegli iz BiH. Diplomirala je psihologiju, a nedavno je podržala istospolne brakove.

Not long left until I begin my @missworld journey in Sanya, China as @missworld 2017 💗 The road has been both paved and constructed. A combination of effort and blessing. I felt the responsibility of the title grow as each day passed, and it is one that amounts as my life greets each morning and evening - along with my motive to utilise this blessing to help those in need and make a difference. To maintain my heart and , and mind in place of what it came here for. To grow and develop as an individual who purified her soul by being of service to greater good. To submit to a purpose , and this purpose now being Beauty with a Purpose 🙏🏻 Thank you once again to @phuketpearls for the beautiful crown inspired by the "waves of the ocean" and the Sydney Opera House/Harbour Bridge 👑 it has also been an honour raising funds for @varietyaustralia ❤️ and will continue to do this and help other charities along the way . •Image taken by @rosannafaraci • wearing @bonita_couture @phuketpearl_onlineshop 💕#missworldaustralia #missworld #phuketpearls #beautywithapurpose #service #blessings #qadar #bonitacouture
