A Malaysian teenager, hailing from Kuching in eastern Sarawak state, took her life, soon after she posted a poll on Instagram, asking if she should live or die. The 16 year old girl took to an extreme, when she posted on Instagram, “Really important, help me choose D/L”. The alphabets D and L apparently stood for death and life.
Reportedly, 69% respondents voted in favour of her ending her life. An investigation has been urged into the matter, in order to avoid further abuse of social media, and also to discourage such tragic incidents in future.
Youth and sports minister expressed concern about the state of mental health of youngsters, he wrote on Twitter,”Its a national issue which must be taken seriously. A national discussion must take place”.
