ONLY moments ago, I got tear jerks in my heart stumbling upon a Straits Times story about an insane 51-year-old mum who allegedly stabbed her 14-year-old daughter, Eunice, to death a couple of days ago in Singapore.
Last year, a Malaysian mother had been charged for the murder of her 5-year-old daughter. And last month, in Brunei Darussalam, a mother was charged by police to have pimped her two teenaged daughters to solicit money from sexual perverts.
There was this recent absurd case of a mother named Rosemarie (wife of “Austria’s Monster” Fritzl) who has not an inkling about how her crazy husband had been incestuously raping her daughter, Elisabeth, an estimated 3,000 times down below in their house cellar since she was 18. He has fathered seven children out of that incest (Elisabeth is now 42)!
There seems to be no end to such freaky cases globally. What’s happening to morality in the world we live in now?
Heaven lies under one’s mother’s sole of her foot… but when cruel mothers have no more care in the world for their own daughters, something’s wrong somewhere, somehow. Pure motherly values need to be inculcated!
The learning point for me in all these motherly failures is how an ungrateful son I’ve been all these years for the greatest and kindest love that my Mama has been showering on me and my other siblings throughout the decades. All the sufferings she has endured and sacrifices she has made for 50 years since my mother first gave birth to her first child in 1959. My late eldest brother had passed away when he was two years old due to illness.
But what unfortunate circumstances that some mothers had to resort to unthinkable and unimaginable acts of cruelty on their innocent offsprings, particularly their baby daughters they had laboured so hard to deliver into this temporary world..
Nauzubillahi minzalik… Astaghfirullah alAzhiim!
