A few days ago, we all came across the video of a little 3-year-old girl, Haya, was seen beaten by her mother while she was trying to teach her maths. The video stirred a storm on social media and it shook a lot of people and a majority of the audience approved it and for a few, it was just a hilarious video. Sad.
Even famous cricketers Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Yuvraj Singh shared the video on their respective social media profiles. However, the uncles of the little girl, Toshi and Sharib Sabri, Bollywood singer-composers, came forward and confronted the public once they realized how serious the matter has turned out to be.
Here’s what Yuvraj Sinh had posted:
and… Virat Kohli…

The fact that the pain and anger of the child is ignored and ones own ego to make the child learn is so massive that compassion has totally gone out of the window. This is shocking and saddening to another dimension. A child can never learn if intimidated. This is hurtful.
According to sources, here’s what the uncles had to say:
A heartfelt message for all, for the video of our niece that had gone viral recently, here is us on behalf of her mother whose apple of the eye she is and every family member who loves her. – Thank you Shaarib & Toshi #Love #MotherDaughter #LoveOurNiece

Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan don’t know about us. Hamare bachche ke bare mein humein pata hai naah ki hamara bacha kaisa hai! Uska nature hai waisa… Agle hi pal woh khelne chali jaati hai. Agar aap usko chod do toh woh kahengi main mazzak kar rahi thi. Uske nature ki wajah se chod denge toh woh padai bhi nahi kar paayengi. (We know about our child better. Haya’s nature is such that after being scolded, the next minute she runs off to play. But, because of her nature if we don’t push her, she won’t study.)
The singers tried justifying the act and clarified the act by saying that video was made for a family group where the mother wanted to show her husband how Haya, the little girl, has become stubborn and that is okay for a child to throw tantrums are
Woh jo rona hota hain, woh us moment ke liye tha taaki uski maa use padaaye na aur khelne de. Chota bachcha hai 2.5-3 saal ka. (All the crying was for that moment so that her mother doesn’t make her study and let her play. Haya is just about 3 years old). It’s not a big issue. Har ghar mein bachon ki alag zidd hoti hai, alag-alag tareeke ke bachche hote hain. [Ye] bachchi bahut zyada ziddi hai [lekin] humari laadli hai. (In every house there are different kind of children. Ours is a very stubborn child but is extremely dear to us)
Ek maa ki mamta hai, judgment nahi kar sakte hain. Jisne usko 9 months kokh mein rakha hai. Ab agar bachche zidd karenge toh unko padana likhana chod dein kya? Bachon ko paalna asaan nahi hota. (One can’t judge a mother’s love for the child by seeing a short video. If children throw tantrums, then should we stop teaching them? It’s not easy to raise children). I’m married and have a son. I know how difficult it is to raise a child. Parents have to do double duty by managing both — the children and the household at the same time.
In the end, Toshi and Sharib also pleaded the public to leave the little girl alone as she’s too innocent to be part of all this.
Does this still justify the mother’s act? Let us know in the comments below.
