Perpetual Insecurity 8a - Temporary Protection Dr Habib Wahedy Quote


‘I suffered mental pressure. I have no alternative but to kill myself. I have no other alternative. I am forced to kill myself…I lived in this land for three and a half years approximately – a bit less than three and a half years. I was thirsting to see my children, also my father and mother and sister and brother, but I realise I can no longer tolerate these pains and I know that it has very dangerous consequences in future and so I commit suicide. It’s the only way. When I became sick in my room I was being followed moment by moment, second by second, minute by minute.’

Dr Habib Wahedy, 2003
