If we ask you one person who stood by you in extreme conditions – a failed marriage, job loss, critical illness, who would that be?
We bet most of us would say our moms.
And it’s because of their unconditional love for their children, moms are ready to go to any extreme for them. Though most of us receive the love from our kids in return, some unfortunate moms don’t.
They get insults, kicks, slaps and much more dreadful actions in return.
If you feel we are exaggerating then this disturbing video will break your heart, The video of a 17-YO beating her mother with a broomstick was shot by the boy’s elder sister that went viral on social media.
The video reflects the helpless plight of some mothers, who are either blinded by love for their kids or are helpless as they have no other support system.
In the heartbreaking video, the boy can be seen threatening his mother for talking ill about him to neighbors. He can also be heard threatening to beat her if she continues talking to neighbors about him.
According to police, the accused has been identified as a student at a private college and was addicted to smoking and alcohol. Whenever his mom would advise him to change his habits, he would attack her.
As police told the Times of India,
“The son was upset with the mother as she allegedly badmouthed him in the neighborhood. Recently, the woman was seen talking to her neighbors on the future of her son as he was not serious about life and was performing badly in studies.”
What is the lowest point in the whole incident is when the police reached out to his mother for filing her statement, she refused to give any statement fearing further attacks from her son.
The teenager was forced to apologize to his mother after the police confronted him. But it left many questions unanswered:
How can police be sure that 17-YO won’t commit this crime again?
How many mothers and fathers suffer in silence as they have been physically and mentally assaulted by their own blood?
Though there are many more questions, the most important is:
How can people hurt someone, who has given them unconditional love?
Though we are still grappling with these questions, one thing is for sure. No one can deny the power of social media in today’s world. It not only helped this crime come to surface, but also gives our society a chance to get rid of its dirt from time to time.
