In a video that has since gone viral, a man accused a religious teacher at Tahfiz Al Walid in Kuantan, Pahang of sexually assaulting and abusing his son
"I send my child to you with a million hopes. I cry on my way to work missing my child, and this is what you've done to me," the distressed man can be heard saying in the two-minute video which has circulated on Twitter.
The tweet has garnered over 3,000 retweets at the time of writing.
While showing photos on his phone, the man confronted the religious teacher about bruises all over his son's body
He said that the boy admitted to having been forced to massage the tahfiz teacher, and said that he was beaten if he did it incorrectly.
He also said that the man kissed him on the lips.
"They were kisses on the cheek," the flustered teacher responded.
"If you weren't dressed in religious cloth I would hit you," the boy's father replied.
When the man recording the video threatened to make a police report, the teacher begged them to reconsider.
"Please don't, I'm just trying to help them," he said.
"Don't bother trying to show that you're good," the boy's father said.
According to the police report which was later filed, the student had been caned on his arm and head, pinched on his underarms and thighs, and kicked in the back
