Vogue recently paid tribute and posted an obituary on their website for a former model who got murdered in Bangladesh.
Raudha Athif, a 20-year-old Maldivian model, was found dead hanging in her room in Rajshani, Bangladesh on March 29, 2017. It seemed she committed a suicide but her brother, Rayyan Athif, said that she was murdered by Muslim extremists who entered his sister’s room.
Rayyan claimed in his interview with WND, an American website, that Raudha was killed due to not wearing Islamic clothing.
“Raudha’s style of clothing was branded as ‘immodest’ and ‘un-Islamic’ even though she adhered to the dress code in the college premises by wearing a veil covering her face,” Rayyan said on his interview. The ex-Vogue model was known for using her platform as a model to promote anti-bullying on religious aspects and controversies.
Rajshahi metropolitan Police Detective Branch Assistant Commissioner Amin Hossain concluded that there is a chance that the Maldivian model did not commit suicide.
Raudha Athif, aside from being a model, is a medical student at the Islami bank Medical College in Bangladesh and is already on her second year. She mentioned in Vogue that modeling was a hobby but her real passion was to be a doctor. She became popular after appearing in Vogue India’s cover for October 2016 issue. Her Instagram page that had over 30,000 followers already was taken down after her death.
