This refers to the letters ‘Suicidal nation’ (May 3), by Komal Kanza and Laiba Rasheed. Both the writers have expressed concern on the increasing rate of suicide cases in Pakistan which reportedly arise from depression, mental stress or other mental health issues. Many people commit suicide because of domestic problems including financial issues. Most of the people are fed up and frustrated because of the poor governance in the country. There is no rule of law in the country and principle of merit does not exist. The water scarcity and loadshedding has disrupted the lives of the people. Job opportunities and access to education and healthcare is not available to the people.
Unless society is cleansed of corruption, inequality and other economic malaises, suicide tendencies in the agitated minds of the people will not be controlled.
