A Muslim woman who tried eloping with her Hindu lover, was tied to a tree for 5 hours and flogged for bringing dishonour to the village after her family managed to track her down.
The 19-year-old girl who is said to be the daughter of a respected Muslim faithful, eloped with her lover Rupesh Kumar from Jogiya Maran Village in north east India. It was gathered that she has been dating her Hindu lover for more than 18 months, and told reporters that she was “ready for any punishment”.
“I love the boy and will marry him come what may. “I don’t believe in castes or religions. “I am 19-year-old and can well decide whom I should marry, whom I should not,” she asserted.
Her relationship was forbidden and her family managed to find her after contacting her lover, according to reports. The Muslim woman was punished for bringing dishonour to the village by the village council, and she was tied to the tree and whipped.
Though no arrests was made in relation to those who tied her up as no complaint was filed, it was further learnt that her father told reporters that he had asked his daughter to introduce him to her partner but she had refused.
