Pakistani singer Ali Zafar also condemned the incident in a series of tweets and he also highlighted that how such exclusive schools are hotbeds of abuse.
Just saw a video of a girl being bullied. I don’t want to share the video because no matter how bad the act was, I feel that those girls (the bullies) need a fair chance in life to learn and become better human beings; however, the issue of bullying needs to be addressed.— Ali Zafar (@AliZafarsays) January 21, 2023
Host Mishi Khan also demanded justice for the affected girl and called out the so-called modern school for not shunning the curse of drugs in the school.

Zunaira Inam, the wife of Usman Mukhtar, has consistently spoken out against bullying and violence. She reacted quickly as soon as the incident's footage started going viral.
I have said this before and I'll say it again, WE ARE RAISING OUR KIDS WRONG. We are raising entitled, privileged bullies who think they can get away with anything and there will be no consequences because their daddy will bail them out.
