Saudi Man Ironed His Son’s Genitals For Being Sexually Assaulted By A Group Of Teenagers
A Saudi Arabian father punished his own son for being sexually assaulted by ironing his genitals, a psychologist said.

The boy had reportedly been sexually abused by a group of teenagers at an unknown location in Saudi Arabia. His father then took to “punishing” him for the assault, using a “hot iron on his son’s genitals”, according to local media.

Dr Hussain Al Shamarani took to Twitter to reveal the Saudi man was looking for help and that he genuinely believed he had done the right thing.

“This man came to ask for my advice, not knowing that his action had already done more damage to the child’s health and mental well-being,” the psychologist said according to Stepfeed.

“There are so many similar cases, where parents resort to punishing a child after an assault or simply choose not to come forward to get them help they truly need in the wake of such incidents.”

After Al Shamarani shared the tragic case online to show how sex abuse victims in the Saudi Arabia are being treated, people condemned the father’s actions.

“Ignorance is catastrophic. This father knows he won’t be punished for his actions. This is why similar incidents will always recur.” a user wrote.

Another user said that some people are not fit for parenthood, while the other one said: “This is how their brains are programmed, to blame the victim for being harassed,”

Some people called for the Saudi authorities to take action and bring in hotlines to professionally deal with similar cases. A user also raised the issue of a lack of hotlines in the country where victims would be able to anonymously report abuse.
