Sample Article Menace of Mental Torture
There are many types of punishments or tortures. Physical or corporal punishment is condemned throughout the world and many laws and policies, rules and regulations are made in the constitutions from time to time. Psychological or mental torture is the worst of all, as far as my opinion is concerned. The physical scar is obvious and can be treated well on time, but the scar on mental or emotional health is irrevocable! It has the capacity to ruin the life of any person at any stage.
Physical punishment is no punishment as compared to mental torture. In any age of human history, if the person whether adult or child is emotionally abused then he can be an easy victim to anxiety, depression, tension, frustration, desperation. If the torture continues then the initial worries and mental troubles changes into havoc of psychotic and neurotic diseases. If the problem is worse the person can be a living dead!
He, then, be able to walk, see, eat, drink, laugh, cry and sleep, but never be able to ‘think’ ‘enjoy’ relax’ and make decisions in his life. The ‘host’ can easily be transformed into a deadly ‘parasite.’ The menace of mental torture are many and each one is worthy of taking a space of full book!
The world became aware of this destruction and it finally was banned in 1948 under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). United Nations plays a key role in drafting the conditions and clauses of this universally accepted law. The law stated the ban on all forms of punishments, but it still existed in the world in some shapes.
There are certain times in the life of human beings when punishment becomes very necessary as to stop the child or adult from going stray in life, in such conditions, light physical punishment must be given, but as a tool of correction. Mental punishments should never be the taste of any human being as these are held accountable in the court of Almighty!
