A mother of five has said her baby’s cries for help from his mother are met with “no help” in a Facebook post.
The baby’s father said the baby’s behaviour has been “horrible” and that “no one would help him”.
The post was shared by the mother’s daughter and a Facebook friend of the family, which has since been taken down.
The post has since received thousands of shares, but the mother said it was her husband who had sent the messages, saying “the first message was about the baby, the second about the mother, the third about the father”.
“There were no help messages at all, but that was the last message,” she told NDTV.
The couple are not married and the post was “not appropriate”, the post read.
The Facebook post has been shared more than 5,500 times and received more than 100 comments.
The family has not spoken publicly about the post, and Facebook says it has deleted the account “due to safety concerns”.
The couple, who live in a rural area in Rajasthan, said they had received support from the community and the local police.
“There was nothing wrong with the way we had been treated.
The police had contacted us, and they even gave us food to eat,” the woman’s daughter, Prabhu, told NDtv.
“The first message we received was about how we should have been more supportive, and the second was about why our baby was crying.
There was nothing we could do about it.”
Ms Prabhanbhai said her husband had also contacted the police after she sent him a message on Facebook that was “totally inappropriate”.
“I thought I would take this as a personal attack, but when I saw the comment on my Facebook page, I thought maybe he’s being sarcastic.
He’s not being sarcastic at all,” she said.
“He’s actually saying something that was totally inappropriate.
I think he should be punished.
He shouldn’t be a part of this community, and I feel that this family should be ashamed.”
