Why in Pakistan suicide cases increases day by day? Suicide has become quite a delicate and multifaceted problem in Pakistan. We are in a warlike situation and prevalent poverty is a major factor behind the recent spate of suicides in the country. People enroll in suicide squads in terrorist camps to support their families. Pakistan is a Third World country blessed with a corrupt government leadership and corrupt officials. Things have come to such a pass that a majority of Pakistanis are living below the poverty line. There is no doubt that poverty is one of the biggest causes of suicide in Pakistan. The govt should take steps to improve the situation. MARIUM YAQOOB, Karachi, October 4.
