As shocking as this may sound, unfortunately, this is not the first time such an incident has occurred. A mother’s love is more than the love of our God, yet time and time again we listen and read stories of how a mother takes the life of her own child.
Earlier in January, a woman jumped off from a six-story building after throwing off her two-year-old baby girl in Karachi. Those who witnessed, narrated the incident, and revealed that the woman initially threw her mobile phone from the sixth floor, attracting attention from the passers-by. Local residents covered the ground with covers of vehicles in a bid to stop the woman.
She then threw her child from the building who was caught by the bystanders. In addition, people gathered at the building tried to stop her from jumping off the sixth floor. However, she slipped off the building while trying to come down from the balcony.
The crowd that gathered in the street luckily managed to catch the baby and she remained unhurt. On the other hand, the woman suffered serious injuries. Later, the details revealed why the woman committed such a horrifying act.
Similar to this is what happened in Karachi two years back. A mother drowned her two-and-a-half-year-old daughter and took her life. What is the world coming to?
