Purported ‘suicide note’ that went viral reveals pressure, despair felt by some

This suicide at the second Penang bridge startled many not least due to the reported message purportedly left behind by the victim on Facebook. This statement by Parit Buntar MP Mujahid Yusof is worth pondering on.

Pengajaran bunuh diri Sukri Saad

Bunuh diri adalah penyakit psycho-social yang berlaku atas kekecewaan hidup. Lazimnya mangsa bunuh diri akan memberitahu kenapa dia mengambil tindakan supaya yang tinggal akan tahu kenapa dia bertindak demikian. Bunuh diri ini bersifat peribadi.

Ada juga yang membunuh diri kerana kecewa pada tindakan kerajaan. Tindakan ini bukan atas kepentingan diri tetapi kecewa dengan sistem yang mencengkam. Gambar seorang sami buddha pada tahun 1963 di Vietnam membakar dirinya kerana menentang kezaliman dan penindasan regim. Beliau adalah Sami Mahayana Buddhist, Thích Quang Duck membakar dirinya di simpang sibuk Saigon. Para pengkaji menamakan bunuh diri ini sebagai self immulation atau korban diri untuk tujuan lebih besar.

Tariq Mohamed Bouazizi membakar dirinya di pekan Buaizi Tunisia membantah tindakan penguatkuasa mendenda dan merampas buahan jajaannya di tepi jalan. Bouazizi menjadi ikon kepada kebangkitan arab spring bermula di Tunisia. Perbuatan bakar diri Bouazizi tenggelam, yang menjadi perbualan ialah kezaliman regim menindas usaha rakyat mencari sesuap nasi dan membiarkan pemimpin menyamun duit rakyat berleluasa. Revolusi rakyat bermula, Bouazizi menjadi wira.

Kita dikejutkan perbuatan terjun dari jambatan kedua Pulau Pinang oleh suami muda bernama Sukri Saad 38 tahun. Perbuatan bunuh dirinya tidak banyak mendapat liputan tetapi tujuan perbuatannya melalui nota di FB yang diposkan membawa kepada satu rumusan bahawa simangsa kecewa dengan sistem yang ada menindas si miskin dan membiarkan yang kaya terus melahap.

Sukri Saad adalah mangsa sistem, ia bukan cara terbaik untuk melahirkan kekecewaan tetapi ia adalah cara melambangkan sistem yang menghukum rakyat marhaen demi sesuap nasi dan membiarkan yang berkuasa dan kroninya terus merompak. Nabi s.a.w pernah bersabda:

” ….sesungguhnya hancur mereka sebelum kamu apabila si bangsawan merompak dilepaskan dari hukuman dan apabila yang miskin mencuri dikenakan ke atasnya hukuman..”

Pemimpin kerajaan hari ini belum menjawab skandal 1MDB, 2.6bn dll skandal angkara kelompok elitis politik. Rakyat di bawah hidup susah, jurang ketaksamaan semakin meluas. Allahyarhan Sukri Saad hanya sebahagian mangsa kefasadan politik dan rasuah yang membengkak. Jangan ada lagi Sukri Saad kedua, cukuplah kita bangun dari mimpi kita yang panjang, bairlah mesej Sukri Saad mengingatkan kita satu perkara, Selamatkan Negara!

Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa ialah ahli parlimen Parit Buntar.

“Our Dreams Are Over” Feeling of Despair by entrepreneurs in guesthouses and lodgings within the inner city George Town. (Another example of how state gomen squeezes the small life out of decent entrepreneurs by ‘don’t make sense’ legislations) “When you do business in George Town, you will know how the government squeezes you. “It was my dream to run a quaint lodging that is more soulful for guests than a plain budget hotel. “I charge so cheap to be attractive. Only RM18 a night for a dorm bed, RM60 for the small room and RM140 for the family room. But… Read more »

Related: Voluntary euthanasia for the terminally ill. A few countries have successfully implemented this for a decade or two. It is administered by willing doctors. Australia TV just aired a 1-hour program promoting its legalisation, and highlighting the terrible, current suffering of the ill and their relatives.

Bolehland is of course completely delusional on this topic. Actually, it cannot even prevent fires, floods, rats and mosquitoes even inside hospitals. Hypocrisy rules in ethics, rights (e.g. “war on drugs” and migration), development, maintenance, etc.

Committing suicide is a bad idea. Why? For your loved ones & family members, the loss of one life from committing suicide is distressing &may leave a bad influence on weaker minds (to copy-cat in times of problems & depression). For the self, when one dies from committing suicide, the soul is condemned regardless of purpose to die b’cos we are forbidden to commit suicide by our Creator. We are expected to seek recourse to overcome problems instead of falling for the idea of dying. The same for suicide bombers led by false teachings. And while you die, what can… Read more »

Anak 5?
In the old days people have many children to provide manpower for own’s farming (rice) or fishing needs.
No longer such needs today – agriculture sector relies on foreign labour.
So B40 will have more burden with many kids!

Peter,
why do you feel sorry for him?
don’t you remember that NEP has provided goodies for him?
there are many non-malays who could survive without those bumi privileges.

He should have applied loan from MARA or Tekun to start a business.
Opportunities are abundant for bumi, but the poor only want handouts instead of a means to start business.

It was particularly sad when one considers that the ‘crime’ was so trivial and yet those involved in huge financial swindles and so on seem to go largely unpunished.
