Woman Forced To Bathe Naked In Public By Husband And In-Laws For Male Child… WTF!

It's been 2 days since the incident occurred, there is a law against practice of occult and black magic, but... only FIRs have been filed against the offenders. No arrests have been made, yet.

The internet has been bursting since 2 days, about an incident, where a young woman was forced to bathe naked, under a waterfall, in full public view.

Forced by whom? Her own husband and in-laws.

Suggested by whom? A local ‘Aghori Baba‘. (Black Magician)

Why? So she could produce a Male Child.

Where? In Pune.

Witnesses? Many random onlookers.

Who reported? None of them bothered, but the lady herself.

And to imagine her plight, her own husband and in-laws disrobe her, insult her modesty and yet she, was helpless. There was no one she could speak to.

Never miss real stories from India's women.

What women empowerment? What ‘nari shakti’?!

As far as sorcery, witch-craft and black magic are concerned, our country still has to go a long way. We boast of women empowerment, higher rates of girls’ education, fewer female infanticides. But then, the real scenario is a completely different story altogether.

Wonder why isn’t it taught in schools, at a basic level, that the sex of a fetus is determined by the man’s chromosomes. When the female duties of Sanskaar, Shadi and Seva are so well etched in all our minds, why not this simple scientific truth?

The lady in question was being harassed for dowry since the past many years. So you might ask casually, “Why couldn’t she complain earlier? Why now?”

I’ll tell you why. It’s been 2 days since the incident occurred, there is a law against practice of occult and black magic, but… only FIRs have been filed against the offenders. No arrests have been made, yet. Many Women Welfare groups and NGOs are calling out, but the perpetrators are conveniently at home.

What purpose does a complaint serve, if the offenders walk free, every time? Why would she dare to complain, if she knew her in-laws would eventually be released, and then wouldn’t they harass her all the more?

Yes, Laws for protection of women against atrocities exist. But what’s the measure of the punishment handed over? Every day, there’s news about a woman’s face been blackened, she being paraded naked, head tonsured, beaten up, falsely accused, gang-raped…

Ever read a story following these incidents,  about the accused being nabbed and put behind bars?

No, I guess. The news ends with the torture of the hapless woman and cases being filed.

For all those pending cases, and the wronged women, the world couldn’t care less.
