Anam Tanoli Suicide a Wake Up Call for Pakistan
On the 1st of September, police found Anam Tanoli’s body inside her house in Lahore and according to official statement, it seemed that she committed suicide by hanging herself. Anam Tanoli was an up and coming model in the fashion industry who had also just finished her degree in Fashion Designing and returned home around two months ago.
Her body was taken to the General Hospital was post-mortem to rule out foul play by the authorities. According to a statement by her mother, she had been dealing chronic depression for a long time now and had been under stress.
This is not just another news about a celebrity’s death. This is a cry for our society to wake up and acknowledge that mental illness like depression and anxiety exist. People love to brush mental health under the rug for fear of seeming “crazy” but it is time we removed the stigma surrounding it. People’s bodies and minds are no different and they both require love and care. If we do not see Anam Tanoli’s suicide as another wake up call for us to start caring not just of ourselves but others around us then we would have failed as a society.
We need to start being more responsible and observant. Our friends or family members can be suffering silently and we would never know. People with depression do not appear “sad”, in fact, they can seem like the happiest people on Earth. So please, consider this as a public service message to be more careful and mindful of not just ourselves but others around us. Mental illness is as real as heart disease so let’s start treating it as seriously too.Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
