Malaysian Digest has published an online article regarding an interview with the victims husband. You can read about it here: Why I Beat Up My Wife: Man At Centre Of CCTV Assault Case Tells His Story
A lot of people around the social media scene are now pedaling backwards and commenting a type of “See la, we should always see the other side of the story before we start condemning and pointing fingers”. ” I knew the guy had valid reasons for being violent and hitting his pregnant wife”. “You see la, the wife deserved it”. “They married too young”. “They deserve each other”.
Eh? Hello people, how does this make what he did any less uglier then it really is? He lost his temper and hit and slapped and pushed his PREGNANT WIFE around. He suffers mild depression? Heck, I can count on BOTH hands and feet of the amount of people I know who suffer from one case or another of depression. It’s nothing new son and it’s not something you can fall back on as a “I was sick, I couldn’t help myself”. So what if your wife cheated on you? Instead of hitting her with your fist you should have hit her with divorce papers. He already knew she suffered from depression shouldn’t that be an indication to be more careful and watchful and get her medical and moral support? If he thought his mother in law was crazy then isn’t that ANOTHER indication as to what he was getting himself into. I am a true believer in signs. There are signs everywhere and it is up to the person to OPEN THEIR DAMN EYES, to see it and acknowledge it and to act on it. As for you people who back track from labeling him a monster (because everyone was in a frenzy over it) into a “Oh, so that is why he did it, understandable la” you guys should let your self loose in a field of grass and eat it like sheeps. Cause that is what you are, sheeps, sheeps that follow the crowd. It is people like you who tolerate such behaviors that our country is plagued with idiotic judges, rapist and abusers. I’m not just talking about the men here I am also looking at our women. Yes, women too are at fault. It is the society we live in and I pray to God that we all wake up before something terrible happens to shows us the error of our ways.

I saw this video being shared around by my friends on Facebook and I clicked on it out of curiosity. What I saw was really sad and heart wrenching. It also made me very angry. In the first two videos a young woman is being abused by a man (who I later found out was her husband). She posted two videos on her Facebook and the second video shows the husband slapping her furiously.
What makes this video so sad is that she was two months pregnant with their baby when this happened. The husband blames his mother in law for the problems in his marriage (and he takes it out on his wife). Women are precious things, human beings are precious things. Instead of hitting her he should have just walked away from the situation. Unfortunately, he let his emotions get the better of him and used brute force instead. For the record, physical and mental abuse is a big no no in a relationship REGARDLESS OF GENDER.
Here is the two videos from her facebook, CLICK ON THE PHOTO TO GO TO THE VIDEO;
After the incident, the mother of the victim went back to the shop to get back her daughters clutch and she was abused as well.
This is so wrong.
For more information you can click on the post below where the blogger has a total summary of what happened and has collected information (via social media) from both sides. He has photos and links to both parties facebook.
