Sick And Pitiful Mentality
Pakistanis are always the first ones to create the top trending tags concerning over deteriorating mental health situation in the country as well as the alarmingly increasing rates of suicide attempts over the past few years thanks to social media. It all seems ironic, especially when we are the same people who empower and normalize killing someone’s peace of mind by invading one’s privacy. This country needs to stop taking others’ personal matters in its own hands and should promote minding one’s own business. The day we stop searching “Minahil Malik Tik Tok Viral Video” on Google, we will prosper.
We cannot comment on actions of Minahil Malik or any other victim because we are not the ones to punish the culprit. Being observers, we should render our civic duties and demoralize any efforts of vandalizing another person’s self-esteem and health.
