Three weeks ago, 14-year-old student K. Saravanan was beaten to death at a bus stop by a group of Form Two students, simply because he walked funny.

In August, Mohd Ridwan Radin, 14, had to have his spleen removed after being repeatedly kicked in the stomach by bullies.

And last May, a disturbing YouTube video went viral. It showed a 13-year-old student being slapped, strangled with a necktie, hit on the head with books and having her hair clipped by a group of schoolgirls.

These aren’t isolated cases either:

> Over 430 young people were arrested for bullying last year
> There were over 300 cases involving juveniles causing hurt to others
> 84% of Malaysian children aged 8-17 have been victims of bullying

And these are just the cases that are reported.

Imagine how many other victims – possibly your own children, siblings, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins – are still suffering in silence?
