Many people ignore what they beliefs taught them regarding suicide and some are clueless as to what happens to ones soul. “I want to die.” “Maybe if i die i will be free and find peace, peace from all the pain i feel.”.

In the Hindi cultural belief, when a person commits suicide, they soul roams around like a ghost and haunts people. Its causes trouble for the living. The priest has to perform certain rituals to make sure the soul does not get seen or trouble the living. By doing that, it roams around without being seen. It does not ‘RIP’.
Accordong to the Christian belief, its is considered as an unforgiveable sin since you can’t repent for it after your death. It is belived that God gave you the life you have and only he has the right to take it from you. When you commit suicide, your soul gets punished and sent into hell until judgement day where you will have to answer for you sins. After being judged, your soul gets sentenced to an eternity in hell where it does not ‘RIP’.
In the ancestral belief, when a person commits suicide, they soul gets bounded and chained. Its is put in a dark and cold place in the ancestral realm where no one can reach it. It remains there until judgement day where it gets sentenced to an eternity in hell where they is no peace.
