Local TV personality Ahmad Fedtri Yahya took to his Twitter recently to share with his followers about a heartbreaking story of a woman who almost became a victim of sexual abuse by her own father!
The woman – whose name is kept secret – came forth to open up about the traumatising experience she (and also her seven sisters) encountered upon learning that her father was a paedophile.
Through the posting shared by Fedtri on his social media earlier on Monday (4th October), the lady revealed that she and her sisters had almost been molested by their own dad. To make things worse, even their mother didn’t seem to believe the allegation made against her husband!
“When my sister informed my mom about this, she brushed it off and dismissed her. It was essentially gas lighting. Since that day, everyone started opening up about what my dad used to do (to us). My mother threatened to kill herself if we reported about this to the police,” the anonymous victim wrote.
She continued, “We were young at the time. I had no idea who to ask for help. We managed to pull through (the situation) until all of us completed our studies. I also told my sisters to take care of themselves. We really didn’t know what to do, especially with our pedophile and irresponsible father. After he found out that all of us knew about what he did, he threatened us by saying that he won’t give us pocket money for our studies.”
Although all those years of abuse are in the past now (some of them are already married), the scars do run deep and it’s still quite traumatising. “Currently my mom is still living with him. Mom told us to forgive my dad and obey him. Dad? Changed?” the woman, now 30 years old, questioned.
On top of that, the woman also revealed that her younger brother had informed her that the father had met a shaman and tried casting a “spell” on their mother. “My dad forced him to put something inside the cooking oil at our home. My brother obeyed and followed his orders because he said that ‘thing’ will make our family happy,” the female victim further revealed.
She continued, “I waited for the rest of my siblings to leave that place, away from him. I bought a house so that my mother can stay with me. She will never be neglected after this. Dad has sold all of his estate and went back to his first wife’s house. There’s literally nothing left for us, only trauma and debts.”
According to the victim (as revealed by the Buletin FM radio announcer, she’s also planning to apply for financial aid in order to help in funding some of her siblings’ university studies since she’s the only one in the family who is currently working. As for her other sisters, most of them are already married and are now full-time housewives.
Fedtri’s tweet has since gone viral on social media, with over 1.4k retweets at the time of writing (Tuesday, 5th October). Most of them were deeply saddened by the traumatising incident. Others also called for the girls to file a police report against their paedophile father.
