Deeviyaa Nair started this petition to The Malaysian Government

We'd like the government to ban Section 309 of the Penal Code: Whoever attempts suicide and does any act towards the commission shall be punished. Basically, whoever tries to commit suicide will be fined and receive a maximum of one year of imprisonment. Why? 1. Because the law is criminalizing people with mental illness and it stresses the survivors out because technically, they are criminals too. Suicide survivors are someone you shouldn't hate on. Instead, Help them out! The government SHOULD help victims out instead of fining them or impersonating them. Thank you.
