Society was previously less aware of child abuse and neglect, but the age of social media has changed everything.
The case of an autistic child who was apparently abused at a center for children with special needs in Bandar Baru Ampang, with bruises on his body, has sparked a recent wave of violence against children.
Her teacher, who is also the director and owner of the center, does not apologize and insisted that she had done nothing wrong while taking care of the boy.
But the child’s father, Tengku Aminudin Shafiq, says his son was abused after watching CCTV footage at the center.
Tengku Aminudin shared his experience on social media as a warning to other parents against the center.
In a Facebook post on Sunday, Tengku Aminudin explained how his hopes for them to take care of his son have been dashed.
He expected the center – which charges an additional fee – to be very knowledgeable and knowledgeable about the skills and techniques that specialize in dealing with special children.
Tengku Aminudin was also appalled that he was not allowed to take CCTV recordings, although he managed to record some of them using his phone.
In a short video recording of the CCTV footage, the teacher attempted to force her son, who is a picky eater, to eat.
Refusing to eat, the boy spat the food out of his mouth and tried to run away.
At this point, the teacher forcefully grabbed Tengku Noah by the arm and forced him to sit down.
The teacher could be heard in the background defending her action in Tengku Aminudin’s video recording, which lasted less than a minute.
Tengku Aminudin takes the case to the police and takes his son for a medical examination.
Legal proceedings were also initiated against the center.
“I couldn’t accept their actions and had to take appropriate action against the center.
“These children are special and if they are treated in this way, I wonder what the value of compassion is in themselves and in their soul.
“What about the fate of the other children? ” he wrote.
To add salt to the wound, he later learned from the Welfare Department that the center was not registered as a child care center and that the teachers were not qualified to teach children with autism.
Its sharing sparked a major reaction from Internet users against the teacher and the center.
By giving them plenty of comments, Internet users have shared the post more than 21,000 times at the time of writing.
The teacher was then arrested by police today (Monday, October 4, 2021).
The arrest was confirmed by the police chief of the Ampang Jaya district, ACP Mohamad Farouk Eshak.
According to a press article, the suspect is a foreigner.
It turns out that his visa documents had expired for over a year.
It was also revealed that the center, which had been operating for seven years, let its license expire two months ago.
