Shaniera Akram, wife of former Pakistan cricket team caption Wasim Akram, took to Twitter to say that being a mother of any kind is a blessing. She added that those who abuse their children should be punished by the law.
“Any step mother out there who thinks it’s ok to hurt, abuse or even neglect any child in their care is an embarrassment to themselves and our country,” she said in a tweet while referring to a news story about a cruel step mother.
Any step mother out there who thinks it’s ok to hurt, abuse or even neglect any child in their care is an embarrassment to themselves & our country. Being a mother of any kind is a blessing & those who abuse that right should be punished with the full strength of the law 😡 https://t.co/O9o8ewVKr3— Shaniera Akram (@iamShaniera) June 22, 2020
