Bizzare: Father In Trouble For Making His Baby Boy Smoke Cigarette (Photo)

A father has been caught on camera making his own son who is less than a year old to smoke a cigarette.

A report by The Sun UK, has shown that a father faces jail after posting this shocking picture of his baby son smoking on social media.

The father, named as Muzammil, 36, is said to have put the cigarette into his nine-month-old son’s mouth and asked his wife to take a picture.

His 18-year-old wife did as she was asked at the family’s village home in Bangkalan Regency, on the west of Indonesia’s Madura Island.

Muzammil then posted the picture online, where it was spotted by authorities.

He has now been arrested and reportedly could face a six-month jail sentence.

Bangkalan Police spokesman Bidarudin said: "We have secured the father for putting the cigarette in the infant’s mouth, even if the baby is his own child.

"The child had the lit cigarette in his mouth. The culprit sat the child up, and he also held the child up by the arms because he was worried that (the baby) would get burned by cigarette ash."

Police are said to be aware that the mother of the baby, identified only by his initials A.I., took the photo but declined to arrest her for unreported reasons.

Local media said there was no precise charge in Indonesian law for encouraging children to smoke.

But it was reported that Muzammil could be jailed for six months under the Child Protection Act.

Smoking is common in Indonesia, though far more men than women take up the harmful habit.

Statistics show 63 per cent of men but only five per cent of women are smokers.

The proportion of under-18s who smoke went up from 7.2 per cent in 2014 to 8.8 per cent in 2016.
