Back in the day, parents and teachers used various methods to discipline their children as a form of “tough love”.

We had a rotan at home and public shaming or standing during perhimpunan as a reminder that these punishments will keep us in line if we misbehaved.

However, in today’s world, these types of punishments are shunned upon.

As reported by the New Straits Times, the Johor Islamic Religious Council (MAINJ) says it will investigate claims that a seven-year-old student was made to stand under the sun for being late to school.

According to NST, State Islamic Religious Affairs Committee chairman Mohd Fared Mohd Khalid said:

“We are aware of the incident and we have asked these departments to investigate and prepare a complete report on it. The investigation will be conducted in detail.”

Recently, TikTok user @DvaFella posted a video that allegedly showed her seven-year-old child being forced to stand under the scorching sun for being late for school.

In the video’s caption, she said:

Dalam pada pihak KPM mengambil langkah berjaga² pada musim panas ni..anak aku selamba je ustazah denda JEMUR tengah cuaca panas atas alasan anak aku lambat ke sekolah. Dah la di pulaukan diasingkan berdiri jauh dari perhimpunan pelajar² lain disidainya anak aku sorang² bawah panas terik jam 2petang sedangkan ustazah tu pandai pulak berteduh bawah koridor.

She added that it was not her child’s fault for being late but hers.

She also noted:

Aku bukan ibu yang bodoh yang tak tahu peraturan sekolah. Takkan lambat 10minit menyebabkan anak dah tak boleh hadir ke sekolah terus pada hari itu.Jadi warga pendidik ni kena peka..kena bijak kena ada jiwa. Pandang budak tu macam anak ko sendiri, budak tu baru darjah 1 kot. Baru nak belajar kenal alam persekolahan yg sebenar.
