According to the findings of a recent Gallup report, Iran, under the rule of the clerical regime, ranks among the top five miserable countries in the world.
According to the report, four from every 10 people in Iran have said that their everyday lives are filled with worries while three out of 10 said that they suffered from constant stress.
The everyday stress and worries that almost all Iranians suffer from stems from economic hardships and lack of personal freedoms under the 40-year rule of the Iranian regime.
In a country where 40% of the unemployed are educated with university degrees, one can clearly conclude that Iranians have no hope for the future and lack the drive for development and progress.
Reports from state-run media show that as a result, suicide, especially among young people, is on the rise.
According to the state-run Khabar Online website, “suicide rates in Iran are increasing in an astonishing way.”
“From 2011 to 2015, suicide rates increased 66% amongst women and 71% amongst men”, Khabar online wrote.
“For years now, the media have not been given stats when it comes to suicide rates as relevant organizations refuse to publish them”, the website added.
The report also says that suicide rates are also very high among young people.
Although relevant authorities do not publish accurate reports of suicide rates or deaths from it, the spread of this catastrophe is such that government officials call it an “epidemic”.
Our reports indicate that the current suicide rates in Iran are the outcome of extreme socioeconomic problems which have put severe pressure on Iranians.
