T-Nhaveen, an 18 year old teenager was declared dead after sucumbing to his injuries. He was declared brain dead. Attacked by a group of school bullies outside a burger shop in southern suburb of George town in malaysia. He suffered brain damage before he died. A boy who had passion for music and was at his peak time for university was taken too young.
Though his sexuality hasn’t been revealed. But, sources say that he was bullied in school for being too soft and less macho. The attackers were a group of young men aged 16- 18 years old. He faced penetration in his anus likely to have been from a blunt object, burnt on his back and wounds to his groin.
How does someone sexuality or physical built make him worthy of such horrying treatment. Everytime I hear stories of such inhuman behaviour. I am still surprised at how humans can be so cruel. Why are teenagers heartless ? What are kids being taught at home or at school? Why are we not standing up for other people? It’s shocking that this happened in a public place but no one came to his aid. No one is bothered about a young child’s life, his family. It brings tears to my eyes.
What is more sad is that it is illegal to be gay in malaysia. Lgbt rights don’t make any difference there. It is even allowed to commit such crimes. Does being human not count for something ? Though 5 of his attackers were arrested and 3 are left to be caught. I wonder if justice will be served in a country that considers it illegal to be anything other than straight.
My deepest sympathy goes to his devastated family. I wish justice for them in heaven and on earth.
Bullies need to be stopped. In schools and everywhere else. People need to be alert and observant. When you spot a bully, stop them before they take an innocent child’s life. Bullies need to be punished and not taken lightly. Even if it’s in school. Do not let a bully be left unattended without being corrected because this is what they might end up doing. Taking away someone’s loving child. Stop a bully, when you see one. Don’t be a bully too.
