Suicidal incident on rise in Kashmir, One more young lady ends life

Tral, May 27, KNT: Suicide cases are on rise in Kashmir Valley. Dozens of people mostly young females end their lives due to unknown reasons. This trend has become common in Valley now. 
   Every day, an incident involving suicide is occurring in some part of Valley. It is considered a sin in many religions and a crime in some jurisdictions. Islam views suicide strictly as sinful and detrimental to ones spiritual journey.
Today, a 27 year old lady (name withheld) daughter of Ghulam Nabi MIr from Diver Tral village of South Kashmir’s Pulwama district consumed some poisonous substance and ended her life. Though, she was shifted to SMHS Hospital where she was declared dead. 
Psychological experts attribute the escalating nuisance of suicides to the changing social set-up amid lack of mental and emotional support to the victims falling prey to the lethal trend which has claimed thousands of lives and rendered hundreds of families devastated.
Doctors say that a person commits suicide when he or she reaches the extreme condition of hopelessness. This situation is generally created when a society hankers after materialistic needs. (KNT)
