Petaling Jaya - Disturbing footage of a Malaysian mother viciously hitting and kicking her ten-month-old daughter has gone viral online. The clip has sparked angry reactions and many YouTube viewers agree that the mother is "sadistic" and "unfit" for parenthood.

The four-minute clip was filmed by a friend of the mother who, disturbed by the woman's behavior on previous occasions, filmed the incident and showed it as evidence to the police.
The video shows the mother sitting on a bed and a baby lying face down on the bed, weeping aloud. The woman hits the baby on the head repeatedly, and in anger throws her mobile phone at the child. The baby, dazed after being repeatedly hit in the head, falls forward after she attempts lifting her head.
The mother grabs roughly the baby's head and pinches her in the face and throws her back on the mattress. An older child wanders into view and watches quietly while nibbling on food.
The baby tries to crawl to her mother but the mother pushes her aside very roughly, screaming. According to News24, the mother screams in Malaysian, "Diamlah bodoh!" meaning "Shut up, stupid!"
The voice of another woman can be heard, possibly the woman filming the incident, saying, also in Malaysian, "do you want to kill the child?"
A outraged viewer said: "I literally cried after watching this video... Can't even imagine beating up any kid like she did. How can those other people in the room just stand by and watch this happen? That poor little baby just wants to be picked up and all she can do it continually beat it."
The Daily Mail reports that the police chief in Petaling Jaya, Arjunaidi Mohammad, said the mother is an unmarried 18-year-old. He said she was convicted of child abuse and sentenced to 18 months in prison. According to the officer, the incident happened in May last year. reports that a post uploaded on the Royal Malaysia Police official Facebook page stated that a police report on the abuse was lodged on May 29 last year. The statement said: "The woman in the video is the toddler's birth mother and was arrested on the day the police report was lodged."
The police said that the mother's reaction was due to "frustration."
CNN reports Fatimah Zuraidah Salleh, deputy director of the children vision of the Social Welfare Department, said the child has been put in the care of a foster family.
According to the Daily Mail, the mother is due to be released in late November and the court will decide whether she will be allowed to regain custody of her child.

foot note says:

Published on 9 May 2012 by CherishTheLoveSTUDIO

UPDATE: Mother is "Ira" , here is some information: (there also is a petition to increase jail sentence)

Malaysia: A disturbing 4-minute home video (link below) shows Ira beating, kicking, pinching, and throwing objects at the defenseless 8 month old baby.

Another person who is taping the action is heard telling Ira, to stop her cruel actions. Most of those who have watched the video are deeply enraged by both the mother and the video taper -- the former for abusing the baby, and the latter for letting it happen without intervening.

The local Malaysian police have taken action against the woman and it is said that the woman was charged and jailed for 18 months in Petaling Jaya last year.

What is "new" is that the video has been released, is going viral, and gives us opportunity to protest against ALL child abuse, regardless of country or culture, and request appropriate sentences against perpetrators.

WARNING: video is disturbing and cannot be re-published at GoPetition.

If you go to the you tube video web site you will be able to click on the blue writing hyperlinks to find the petitions.

I feel this lady needs LOTS OF EDUCATION, MEDICAL ATTENTION AND SO MUCH MORE. SHE SHOULD BE PUNISHED BUT SOMEONE must find a way to stop her from reoffending.

It has deeply troubled me why people film and NOT take action. On one hand no evidence, nothing can be done: on the other hand taking the pictures will stop the offender for longer periods of time...but what about those poor souls suffering hideous abuse right now. Its not an easy answer trying to look at it objectively.

Personally I would have stopped it...I am not sure if that may have made things worse. Its not so easy in real life rescues to know what to do... ONE THING I DO KNOW IS THAT I DO NOT THINK THIS LADY SHOULD HAVE HER CHILD BACK.

To say that this is disturbing would be a gross understatement.

And, yes, Eco, I would have stopped it -- even to the point of kneeing the b*tch, and removing the child.

This was absolutley disgusting - and whomever was busy filming the incident was also guilty of unacceptable behahiour. This woman doesn't deserve children - clearly though you can see others in the backgound - if they have all been beaten like this - they all need to be removed from the home. Treatment likely wouldn't work on her - she seems too calm and methotical in her actions - beating a helpless child did not affect her in the least - other than when the girl stoppsed crying -she would beat it some more. Perahps she should experience what she seems to like dishing out.

me my mum and bro ave seen the vile video of that so called mother beating her daughter and wot a traumtic and distubing video to watch as im a mother to two gawgus children that i would die for and never subject them to to that kind of torture she inflicted on her only child she is one sick unfit nasty piece of shit and she should never ever be aloud to be near any kids let alone her own and she and the other woman who filmed it should also be in jail for not stopping her from doing it.That monster needs to have done to her wot she did to her daughter but 10 times more pain and hope someone in jail will teach her a lesson on not to beat small helpless and defencless children sick sick sick and sadistic is all we can say.
