While Coronavirus has revealed some real heroes in the form of Coronawarriors, it has also brought out the worst in many of us. One such incident exposing the worst side of mankind surfaced recently in Vadodara.
Vadodara-based realty developer threw out his wife and two children aged five and six years over fears of his wife being infected with the coronavirus.
But, what would shock you is the reason behind her husband’s fear. The inspiring brave woman was taking care of her ailing mother-in-law for weeks, and this made the husband believe that she may have been infected.
As per the report in The Times of India, the husband kicked his 35-year-old wife out of her house in Vadodara. The merciless husband asked his wife to return only after she cured herself.
As per India Today, the wife developed a fever and respiratory problems. Post which, her husband and other family members asked her to leave the house and go to Ahmedabad to cure herself.
But she hasn’t been kicked out alone. Along with her, her two kids were also thrown out with her. The family suspected that this brave soul might have caught the virus as she was taking care of her ailing mother-in-law who underwent cardiac surgery and was admitted to a hospital.
The woman would regularly visit her mother-in-law at the hospital to take care of her.
According to the report, the wife resisted when the husband forced her to leave the house. Post which, the husband thrashed her and then pushed his wife and two children out of their house. This shocking incident took place in May.
Post the incident, the wife went to live at their Ahmedabad residence and was living there since then. She got treated at a private clinic. On June 29th, her husband came to the Anandnagar house and objected to her staying there and began forcing her to leave.
As per the report, the husband even threatened to divorce her and also leave the children. This is when the women went to the police in Anandnagar of Ahmedabad and lodged an FIR against her husband.
At IFORHER, we are heartbroken how this wife and kids had to pay the price of being human during this pandemic. This wife’s only crime was that she wanted to take care of her ailing mother-in-law and didn’t want her to suffer alone. But, how she and her kids were treated by their own family, shows humanity is touching its new low.
We hope the authorities would provide justice to this brave soul and hope people would stop being so cruel during the most testing times faced by humanity.
