RASC News Agency: Local sources in Faryab province have reported another incident of suicide. A 27-year-old man named Mohammad Ishaq took his own life by hanging himself in the village of Kohna Qarghan, located in the Qarghan district of Faryab. This event occurred on Sunday, November 12th. It is worth mentioning that Mohammad Ishaq was suffering from a mental illness, which ultimately led to his untimely demise.
Meanwhile, the Taliban group in Faryab has not issued any statement regarding this matter. This is concerning, considering the alarming increase in suicide rates among men and women across various provinces of Afghanistan during the Taliban’s two-year rule. Just a week ago, another young man ended his life by hanging himself in the Almar district of Faryab province. Experts attribute these incidents to a multitude of factors, including poverty, unemployment, the overall situation in the country, the Taliban’s restrictions, domestic conflicts, and mental illnesses.
The rise in suicides among the country’s citizens is unprecedented and calls for immediate attention and action. It is crucial to address the underlying issues that contribute to these distressing events and provide support and resources to those in need. Mental health awareness and accessible healthcare services are vital in preventing further loss of life and ensuring the well-being of the Afghanistani population.
Despite the ongoing incidents, the Taliban group has chosen to remain silent and shown no interest in taking measures to prevent their recurrence in the future. This lack of action on their part has resulted in innocent citizens becoming victims of these incidents. The aforementioned factors have contributed to the loss of lives and security among the population.
