Aijaz Aslam pens a deeply felt note for suicide awareness
Having first-hand experience from filming the scene of what a person who commits suicide goes through, the actor sheds light on suicide prevention. He requests people to keep an active eye on the changing behavior of their loved ones. To be there for their friends and family.
Moreover, in his Instagram post, Aslam reveals he got hurt while performing the scene. He talks about how his neck ‘got stuck in the rope.’
Only those few seconds of shooting that suicide scene were ‘devastating’ for Aijaz Aslam. The Log Kya Kahenge actor learned what people who attempt suicide go through. As well as why we need to be there for them.
In a few words, Aslam summed up a critical point that can be taken away from his character in the drama. As Haseeb’s story has reached its sorrowful end, it would be safe to say that Aslam has done justice to this critical character.
Aslam’s performance and depiction of a family hit close to home for so many people. Additionally, the scene was cut off and not aired on television because of its sensitive content. However, it is available on the YouTube version of the serial’s last episode.
Break the silence already!
Suicide is a public health problem worldwide. More than one million people kill themselves every year. Moreover, while we talk about our very own country Pakistan, various reports point towards shocking suicide rates with exponential rise over the years.
Just this month, two suicides have been reported. A Ph.D. student Nadia Ashraf, of Karachi University took her life, followed by a young doctor and influencer Dr. Maha Shah who allegedly committed suicide.
Let us openly talk about uncomfortable aspects of ourselves without shame. Let us be brave and begin by holding genuine, trusting communications within our surroundings.
