“Ain has shown a remarkable level of maturity and intelligence. Adults, please focus on the main issue and DO BETTER!”

The case of Ain should have been a simple one, a 17-year-old student lodging a complaint about a teacher making an inappropriate joke, and the relevant authorities were supposed to take necessary actions. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. Instead, Ain had to endure taunts and abuse from her schoolmate and various Malaysians who even blamed her for the issue.

Despite this, countless Malaysians have lent their support for Ain and praised her for her bravery in speaking out regarding taboo issues. The last straw for Ain was when she got a first warning letter from her school stating that she can be expelled for not attending school over a period of three days.

That very same day, her father had actually met the school principal. She expressed her support for Ain but still went ahead and sent the letter. On her Twitter (@ant33eater), Ain expressed her disappointment and explained that she had always tried to protect her school and how heartbroken she is.

“The teacher himself and the boy who made the rape threat haven’t had any actions taken towards them but I’m getting expelled.”

On top of this issue, a school principal even called Ain “anak setan” or “Satan’s spawn” and even demanded that her parents educate her better. When netizens started calling her out, the principal deactivated her Facebook account and another person explained that the principal allegedly shared a Facebook account with her autistic son who was the one that made the offensive comment.

Over on Twitter, common Malaysians, celebrities and politicians rallied their support for Ain using the hashtag #StandWithAin which is currently trending in first place in Malaysia.

At this point, it’s frankly astonishing how the Education Ministry is still keeping mum about this issue despite thousands of Malaysians calling for action to be taken. Let us know if you #StandWithAin in the comments section!
