Where else could we feel safe if not in our own home? Our parents are supposed to be our protectors, but it appears that child sexual misconduct by stepfathers or even fathers is a common occurrence that will eventually leave a permanent scar in the lives of the victims.
A video had gone viral detailing the perverted misdeeds of a stepfather and the mother, who had played a crucial part in the incident. On a talk show called Analisis TV Alhijrah, Suzana Ghazali, a family psychology and Syariah legal consultant, shared a disturbing incident in which a mother admitted to assisting her second husband in raping her 11-year-old daughter for the sake of her marriage.
Manusia, terkadang lebih keji daripada segala makhlok yang tercipta
The consultant stated that the victim is the child of the mother and her ex-husband. In order to appease her current husband’s sexual desires, the mother had allowed him to act lewdly on her daughter and legitimise the wrongdoing to save her second marriage.
“The mother told me that her current husband gave her three options, the first option was to allow her daughter to sleep with him. If he couldn’t, at least let him watch her. If neither option was possible, he will divorce the mother,” the consultant explained in the video uploaded on TikTok by the TV host @dinnieasyraf .
The mother refused to report the incident to the police after noticing the lewd looks the second husband gave her daughter as she did not want to be divorced. At the time of writing, the video had garnered more than 900k views, 62.6k likes and over 2.5k comments. Netizens were outraged and condemned the mother for sacrificing her daughter to save her marriage.
The traumatic incident had many concerned about the child’s wellbeing. Unfortunately, according to the post uploaded on Suzana Ghazali’s Facebook page, the consultant was unaware of the child’s progress as the mother could not be reached again after the first session. As of now, the Bukit Aman’s child sexual crime unit is investigating the case that was said to have occurred in 2012.
To those who have experienced or witnessed similar cases, please do voice out and report to the authorities in order to avoid such incidents from happening again.
