Cyber bullying
« on: August 10, 2013, 02:12:16 PM »
Cyber bullying is the use of the Internet and related technologies to harm other people, in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner. (Wikipedia)

In recent times cyber bullying  is one of the notorious incidents in internet era. Basically teenager girls are targeted by the offenders around the world. Young peoples in Bangladesh are madly involved in social media.  Authority should step forward to take appropriate measures to stop any unwanted incidents happen in Bangladesh like the following tragedies:


#Hannah Smith, 14, was found dead after she received a series of abusive messages on the Ask.fm website, telling her to “drink bleach”, “go get cancer” and “go die”.

#In April, 15-year-old Josh Unsworth from Lancashire was found hanged in his parents’ garden after enduring months of abusive messages on the website.

#Last year, Irish teenagers Ciara Pugsley, 15, from Leitrim and Erin Gallagher, 13, from Donegal, also took their own lives after allegedly being subjected to anonymous bullying on the site.(The daily Telegraph)

recently an indian girl and her family suicided when her name was enlisted as a prostitute and her picture was uploaded in a facebook page/group by a male facebook user. Really this scene is very pathetic which needs the strict formulation of laws.

We should create new law, but how to prevent bad mentality of people, I really don't know.

I’m writing the feeling of a girl who is Victim of Cyber Bullying:

"When bullying is done over the Internet you think you can get away with it because you don't see the emotional reaction as if it were done face to face. You don't see the person crying and being upset. So it is much easier to be more mean and hurtful. When I received those e-mails It took me long to recover but thank to my Mom who found out right on time I'm back to being my self."

Thank you Riaduzzaman for writing on  Cyber Bullying.
