MULTAN—A mother of two passed away on Thurs­day af­ter com­mit­ting sui­cide over her hus­band’s re­fusal to al­low her from fast­ing.

A woman of res­i­dent of Garay­wala in Multan, made her daugh­ters M and eight­month-old H drink acid on Wed­nes­day, as a re­sult of which both died on the spot. She later drank acid too and was shifted to Nishtar Hospi­tal in crit­i­cal con­di­tion. She passed away on Thurs­day.

Speak­ing to me­dia, res­i­dents of the area said the womwn and her hus­band had dif­fer­ences about her fast­ing in Ra­mazan as she wanted to fast, which could re­sult in her not be­ing able to feed her eight-month-old child.

The hus­band, a se­cu­rity guard at Nishtar hospi-tal said he could not af­ford in­stant milk for the child, which is why he had asked his wife to skip the fast and feed H in­stead. How­ever, she re­fused and due to their on­go­ing fights over not hav­ing enough money for ba­sic needs, she al­legedly com­mit­ted sui­cide.
