A while ago, someone put up a video of a child studying math with her mother. The kid seemed rather tortured because of her mom’s behaviour and even complained of headache. But the mother went on to hit the little girl while trying to teach her. Cricketer Virat Kohli and several others shared the video expressing their anguish and speaking up against violence against children.

It turns out the girl in the video is playback singers and popular reality show contestants, Sharib and Toshi Sabri’s niece. Both of them are best remembered for their song, Maahi from Raaz – They Mystery Continues.

When Hindustan Times asked Sharib about his sister’s merciless behavior with her kid, he defended her and said:

“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.”

It seems his sister had shot the video to share it on their family group to show how stubborn the little one is. He said, “Woh video ek maa ka video hai, apne bhai aur husband ko dikhaane ke liye banaya tha, ki bachchi bohot zyada ziddi hogai hai.”

He also added:

“In every house, there are different kinds of children. Ours is a very stubborn child but is extremely dear to us. Jab baaki logon ko bura lag raha hai toh wo to maa hai. Ek maa ki mamta hai, judgement nahi karsakte hain. Jisne usko 9 mahine kokh mein rakha hai.”
