A 60 year old man imprisons his wife and daughters for years together fearing they would get corrupted by the ‘big, bad world’.

2000 (!!!) women get flogged by temple priests in the name of tradition.

A woman gets caned for drinking beer at a local bar.

What kind of world are we living in?? Where does it stop? Is there no end to the brutality?
The priest in-charge of the so called ‘flogging ritual’ claims that they have been practicing this for 300 years! Why didn’t this come to the light of the local authorities earlier? With news hungry reporters around, such an act wouldn’t have gone unnoticed if it had indeed been happening for a while now.
Such horrendous acts take place… a few idiots like me blog about it, write to newspapers & news channels hoping for some action… but they’re long forgotten. Nothing is ever done. Nothing will ever be done.
