She has condemned the attack in strong words and declared it as an act against humanity. In her letter, Soniya wrote of the need to create an atmosphere of peace which should stand strong against terror and that we should always be ready for those circumstances that are out of control. “I was really pained after hearing about your daughter’s death. This was a tragic incident and it was against humanity. This kind of violence is a blot to the whole world community. Those who kill people in cold blood can’t be well-wisher of anybody. We have to build an atmosphere against this,” Sonia wrote.

She further wrote that she deeply regrets the demise of their daughter’s and those who commit such a crime can not have sympathy from anyone.

The nineteen-year-old Tarishi, an erstwhile student of UC Berkeley, was the only Indian national to be killed brutally when terrorists attacked the Holey Artisan Bakery in Gulshan area in Dhaka on the 1st of July.
