Maya Sri Sanha: Some say poverty could be the rea­son for the mother pros­ti­tut­ing her daugh­ters. I beg to dif­fer. I’m sure there are many out there who have been through very dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions but they have not re­sorted to sell­ing their chil­dren. There are many ways to make a liv­ing no mat­ter how tough it is with­out de­stroy­ing a child’s life.

Akma Zaidi: This woman de­serves the lengthy jail sen­tence. While other women wished for and could not ex­pe­ri­ence the joy of moth­er­hood, this one threw it all away by pimp­ing her chil­dren. She has de­stroyed their trust, in­no­cence and self­worth. My prayers go to the daugh­ters.

Syafidzah Noh: Not every­one can have the priv­i­lege to be a mother and this woman has abused hers. How could she sub­ject her daugh­ters to this? How would they re­cover from this liv­ing night­mare and what kind of life would they lead now? I just can’t stom­ach this.

Wong Mei Yong: She es­caped be­ing caned be­cause she’s a woman? That’s pre­pos­ter­ous af­ter what she did to her daugh­ters! I see the jail time as noth­ing more than hav­ing her food and lodg­ing taken care of for the next 75 years while her daugh­ters will carry the scars for the rest of their lives.
