Mental health has become an enormous issue to discuss over the world. The stresses at every level have increased and many times people realize that someone has been gone under the bridge too far when it is too late. The academic challenges, increasing fee, and a lot many factors have made students extremely helpless.
One such case has happened in Faisalabad’s Institute Of Engineering and Fertilizer Research when a student took his own life by shooting himself. A lecturer at the University Engineer Rizwan Shah revealed the student when he took his own life. He called 1122 who said that it is not their case and call 15. The lecturer called 15 three times and they did not pick up the phone. He after all managed to get a van and took the student to a hospital but it was too late. The student Saifullah was dead and he left a shattering suicide note. He asked his parents and teachers for forgiveness and asked the doctors not to save him.
Students of the university are protesting for Saifullah’s justice. According to them, the story is not that trouble-free. Saifullah committed suicide because he failed in the exams and a particular teacher failed him three times. The university has not issued any statement so far therefore things are not clear.
A precious life was lost due to increasing academic pressure and other cruel people around him. It’s high time to spread awareness about mental health and seek help from the professional. Kindly save others. Think before you speak or act, it might even end up hurting others.
