31 A mother has been told she must stop wearing her hijab when her father is being cyberbullaged because it gives him an excuse to target her and her daughters.
In a Facebook post on Monday, the mother of two from Australia’s Gold Coast posted a photo of her husband’s phone, which she said showed a message from his father.
The message said, ‘If you see your dad cyberbullish in the near future, PLEASE DON’T BE AFRAID.
It also said, “If you think your dad was bullying you or your daughters, please let me know.”
She wrote:”The reason I want to share this photo is because I was feeling bullied at school by my dad when he started harassing me online.
He said things like, “I hate you, and I hate you all, and you can do whatever you want, but I want you to know that you are not going to be happy unless you go away and get help,” and, “if you think I’m making fun of you or that you’re crazy, please just stop commenting on my posts.”
In response, a woman posted:”I don’t want to see my dad harassing me and my daughters, but when my husband is being bullied by my ex-boyfriend, I want him to know how much I love him.
I know that he would love to have someone else target him, but it’s too painful to think about, so I don’t.
“The post was shared more than 1,400 times and received more than 70,000 shares.
The father of the mother, who said she did not want her name published, has since been told by a police officer that she is not allowed to wear her hijab, and is banned from wearing the same in public places.
Her father has now been told to cease cyberbullaging her.
