Meenakshi Kumari and her sister

"An unelected all-male village council in India has ordered that 23-year-old Meenakshi Kumari and her 15-year-old sister are raped.

The ‘sentence’ was handed down as punishment after their brother eloped with a married woman. They also ordered for the sisters to be paraded naked with blackened faces. Nothing could justify this abhorrent punishment. It’s not fair. It’s not right. And it’s against the law. Demand that the local authorities intervene immediately."

Please sign the petition and pray.

Hard to believe sentences like this can be contemplated in this day and age.

I pray that it is never carried out

It seems as though right has prevailed, thank God.

As this was against Indian law it is no surprise that when the police investigated the village denied it had ever happened, but the Amnesty action was based on one of the sisters going to a lawyer to seek protection.

I just hope - and pray - that this doesn't make other such councils behave more covertly in future.

For justice, decency and humanity to prevail. :votive2: :votive2: :votive2:
