    We need to create a situation where they wish everyday that they die but they do not

    This is an account of my thinking.

    In the present time we see a lot of terrorist attacks. They kill a lot of people just to be killed. Dying is a way of salvation. They are getting freed of all the difficulties after dying. I think instead of killing these people we need to capture them alive. We need to create a situation where they wish everyday that they die but they do not die.

    Please check my sentences.

    It's grammatically acceptable but I wouldn't say it.

    So, what would you say if you had to say "Make them suffer so much that they wish for death every day but do not die"?

    Read what I wrote in post #2 again. The way I reworded your final sentence is the way I would say it. Did you think I was suggesting something I wouldn't actually use?
