Who doesn’t love cuddling and fondling babies? They are the best and cutest creation of God, after all! But what if it turns out to be an abuse?

That’s what took place in Taif’s children hospital, Mecca province of Southwest Saudi Arabia. Nurses were found squashing and squeezing a newborn’s face ‘just out of fun’, as reported by Metro. Not only the father of the baby but everyone who saw this video got enraged by such nonchalant activity by healthcare professionals.

Here, let us tell you that till few months after birth, babies must be handled with utmost care. Every slightest manipulation of their bodies might prove traumatic to them.

The Health Affairs investigated the source of the video and was able to identify the nurses who appeared in the video and the hospital where the incident took place,” said Abdulhadi Al-Rabie, Taif Health Affairs spokesman, as cited by The Saudi Gazette.

The nurses have been released from their duties immediately after being noticed in the video. Once proved guilty they’ll be subjected to a strict penalty.

Walid Al-Zahrani, a journalist, said the nurses must be put on trial and named in public to let them understand that “people’s lives are not a matter of joke.” Can we agree more to Walid?

We believe the craze of selfies and videos are spreading like a bonfire in this ‘online’ era but that should never be let to burn our conscience and sanity, though.
