Even in the 21st century, our society is struggling to accept the fact that women are no lesser than men.
Though some of us are breaking social norms to live life on our own terms, still there are many who are expected to live according to the whims and fancies of the men in their lives.
And, what this wife recently went through is just another reminder of how patriarchal our society is. How men still see their wives as their property?
In a horrifying and disgusting incident, a husband addicted to gambling and alcohol allegedly put his wife at stake and let his friends gang-rape her when he lost the bet.
The victim claimed that her husband is addicted to gambling and alcohol and put her as a bet in one of the games.
As per the IANS report, the husband’s friend Arun and relative Anil used to visit their house for drinking and gambling. And, during one of such visits last month, the husband did this horrendous act.
And, when he lost the bet, the wife was forced by him and gang-raped by his husband’s friends.
But this incident wasn’t an end to her trauma.
Heartbroken and disgusted, this wife gathered the courage to go to her maternal uncle’s house after which her husband followed her. He asked the woman to forgive her husband as he felt he committed a mistake.
Blinded by emotions, the wife accepted his apology and went back with him in his car.
Hardly, she knew about the nightmare she was about to live.
While on their way back home, her husband stopped the car and asked his friends to gangrape her again.
But, what is even more disgusting and heartbroken is the fact that when the victim approached the police to file a complaint, they refused to act.
Left with no other option to seek justice, this victim approached the court. The court ordered the police to act after which an FIR was filed in Jaffarabad police station.
As this woman struggle for justice, you feel disgusted, saddened & disappointed by the inhumane act of this husband.
Now, you have a choice to either ignore the pain of this woman by comforting yourselves that this can never happen to you or you can come forward to support her in her lonely battle to seek justice.
Your choice will decide what kind of society you want for yourself and your daughters!
