As a single tear rolls down my cheek and I get ready to write in disbelief, I am truly shocked at the vile and cruel behavior of some people. There might be all types of people in the world, cruel, compassionate, helpful and simply out of their mind, however there is really nothing that can actually justify these acts or help these acts make some sense. The relationship between parents and their children is something which cannot be duplicated or fabricated. Since I am not a parent yet, I can only tell what I have heard, and that is that this relationship between parent and child is above and beyond any other relation between humans.
Keeping this in mind, my mind immediately comes back to what I am about to share with you. The media has reported that an Arab expatriate who had been working in the Kingdom, has been arrested on charges of physically assaulting an infant boy, and later attempting to commit suicide. If that was shocking, keep in mind that the infant boy was that man’s own son. The wife of the cruel man, and mother to the unfortunate child, a 19 year old Syrian woman, living as an expatriate in the Kingdom has stated that her husband had been beating on the child and causing him harm ever since the day he had been born. According to the Syrian woman, the husband is 25 years old.
The Syrian woman has added that she never really understood why her husband would cause physical harm to his own flesh and blood, his own son. She stated that she was extremely scared of her husband and she had not told any of her relatives about the incidents which used to take place as she was also afraid that her son would be taken away from her. The Syrian woman says that she is an orphan who had lost both her parents; hence she had a heightened insecurity about losing her only son.
However everything got too much and she finally decided to report the 25 year old husband as the intensity of the violence and abuse had increased significantly. She stated that the last time that the husband physically harmed her son; the infant boy was left with bruises all over his body and even had a fractured skull. Words cannot describe how disgusted I am at this point at the thought of a fully grown man beating on an infant, let alone his own son.
The mother of the infant stated that during the incident when she claimed to report her husband, the husband was biting his son with full force and the wife had no choice but to call her sister, who then told her husband who finally informed the police. The injured infant boy had been taken for treatment to the King Khalid General Hospital. The husband eventually tried to commit suicide by drinking a deadly concoction of various chemicals known to be poisonous to humans. In short, people like the man reported on above, should never have children as they are unable to function as sane, stable humans.
