suicide cases increase in Chitral
Chitral --It is a challenging question, as to why
more and more young girls are committing suicide in
Chitral, despite being one of the peaceful areas of the
region. A few months ago, I counted five-suicide cases
in thirty days. The government of Pakistan has done
nothing to research this trend nor has any NGO. They
merely count heads of suicide committers and issue
statements. Being human beings, we all must be worried
about this and try do something to curb it.
I felt very happy when I heard about Dr Hameeda, a
Chitrali daughter who recently completed her PhD in
England but at the same time I felt so sad because we
lost five daughters within a month. If we will not try
to find solution for this menace, it will surely
increase progressively and we will lose precious lives.
I personally; and also on behalf of all Chitrali urge
the Government of Pakistan and NGOs to please try to
look into and find solution for this disastrous trend.
