I got this news article from the theStar and it is about a minister found out there are few pregnant children at the cameron highland hospital. Even the event was a shocking discovery; it never occurs in his mind the real problem of this discovery. The only thing he can think is how they going to register their babies.
He said that these girls would soon return to their homes in remote villages and the babies would remain without birth certificates.
The minister should take the matter seriously because girls at 11 or 12 age shouldn't be pregnant at this age. It is a crime to have a sexual relationship with an underage girl and more worst having them pregnant. This is a social outbreak among the orang asli and no strict actions were taken at the moment by the government about it.
I find it to be ignorance when the ministers only raise the birth certificate issue when the real issue was suppressed. We're talking about maid, women, animal and children abuse in the newspaper but ignore it when happen to orang asli. I don't really care if this is their culture or not. The important thing is it should not happen to anyone and no matter they're living in the city or the interior and the person who responsible should be taken accountable and sent to jail as a reminder to others.
