“I spoke to a close friend of hers who told me how deeply she was affected by social media trolling & bullying at work. She was suffering from depression & the world was ruthless regardless. I wish she was stronger but I also wish that we were kinder , all of us. Be on a watch, anyone around us could be suffering from depression & your words can take someone’s life. I’m sorry #AnamTanoli on behalf of everyone who pushed you take such a step. My condolences & love to the family! ,“ added Mawra.

Fashion designer, Rizwan Beyn wrote on his Instagram post, “The tragic suicide of Anam Tanoli has been totally sidelined and not been addressed by fashion fraternity.”
“I never knew Anam or worked with her but the awful stories surrounding her suicide are a wake up call for all those of us who still have a conscience and some shred of humanity left,” Beyg added.
“Stories of body shaming and downright vicious attacks on a young vulnerable girl are hugely disturbing and what is even more disturbing is a total lack of remorse, sadness or indignation on her passing.”
“I am ashamed anam and sorry I was silent at the injustice you faced at the hands of fraternity I am part of. Rest in peace Anam because I certainly cannot,” he added in his Facebook post.
