• The biggest example in this regard, she said,
was of Qandeel Baloch. Dad explained that
the social media celebrity had been using

Blue Whale Game
Continued…
• According to a Russian newspaper, this game is
responsible for “130 suicides (globally) that took place
between November 2015 to April 2016.” While no
suicides linked to Blue Whale have been reported in
Pakistan, but a few impressionable young children have
fallen into the trap of this game.
• The Express Tribune reported earlier today that Dr.
Imran Khan, a psychiatrist at Peshawar’s Khyber
Teaching Hospital (KTH), has told them that two boys,
between the ages of 19 to 21, had approached him for
treatment after they fell into severe depression while
trying to complete the challenges giving to them in the
Blue Whale game.
• This trend of online victimization is
strengthened by a Microsoft report: that 41 %
of Pakistanis bully others online, compared
with the worldwide trend, which is 29 %. This
report was compiled in 2018.

Impact on Youth
Continued…
• They suddenly withdraw and seem sad, with low self-
esteem.
• Visible lack of confidence, especially in girls, who are
more often bullied about their looks than boys. Girls
between 18 and 24 years of age said that bullying gave
them a lack of confidence and sadness (45%), 40%
developed a form of depression, 35% felt
strange/odd, 34% felt disappointment, while 24% felt
isolated, 23% felt hopeless and 21% felt even
frightened and guilty for being bullied.
• They don’t enjoy activities that used to get them
excited.

• Wearing long sleeves in very hot weather can
be a sign they are cutting themselves
• which is a form of self-abuse.
• Visible anger and emotional anxiety that
could lead to depression and panic attacks,
• A child who was once a straight-A student
now failing school is definitely a sign that
something is going on,
• Not showing up for class or giving up on
school or job altogether,

• The child has stopped eating properly or, worse,
has developed an eating disorder,
• Regular nightmares or even lack of sleep,
• Drug or alcohol abuse,
• Constantly looking to argue with
authority (parents, teachers), or even
getting violent with others, according to
respondents in a Pakistani study. “In 12 of 15
school shooting cases in the 1990s, the shooters
had a history of being bullied,” research says.

• Suicidal thoughts – research shows that cyber bullying has led to
many extreme events. At this stage, counseling is a must, and
parents should even consider moving the child to a new school.
• The bullied person can have a skewed view, almost paranoia,
toward new people or new experiences. They might have a very
difficult time trusting sincere outreach, and can, very often, wall
themselves emotionally to circumvent any further possibility of
abuse.
• There is always a fear of losing your privacy. It is possible that
hackers find a flaw in the security of the website and use your
profiles for their benefits and you may completely lose your privacy
• Women are harassed more than men, it can be seen in the
#meToo Movement too.
