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?
