6 DIFFERENCES

In this photo there are 6 differences

1. Changed the golden throne to a wooden chair… something more appropriate for the son of a carpenter.

2. Did not want the gold-embroidered red stole, heir of the Roman Empire, nor the red cape…

3. Uses same old black shoes, not the classic red.

4. Uses a metal cross, not of rubies and diamonds.

Virginity Test for women in mass marriage programme by Government

350 women were put through virginity test during a mass marriage programme organised by the Govt. of Madhya Pradesh, India. It is not the first time. The same State forced women to have virginity tests during a mass marriage ceremony in 2009. Girja Vyas, the head of national commission of women then said, “Such a shameful act where girls had to reportedly undergo tests to prove their chastity to avail the Government’s financial aid were sinful and could not be tolerated in a sane society.”

They believe in women’s chastity. Are they concerned about men’s chastity as well? Of course not. A woman must be a virgin if she wants to get married. Who she is married to is not at all important, Nothing matters if the bridegroom is a polygamous or polygynous man, or a women abuser, a dowry murderer, a trafficker!

This has traditionally been tested by the presence of an intact hymen, which was verified by either a physical examination (usually by a physician, who would provide a certificate of virginity) or by a “proof of blood”, which refers to vaginal bleeding that results from the tearing of the hymen. The physical examination would normally be undertaken before the marriage ceremony, while the “proof by blood” involves an inspection for signs of bleeding as part of the consummation of marriage, after the ceremony.

Men like to see women bleeding and crying in pain. They get enormous pleasure exploiting, abusing, humiliating and insulting women.

CONTEMPLATIVE CONVERSATION CULMINATED INTO ACTION

Tushar Gandhi, the great grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, has written this book – one more book from the family of Gandhi, particularly on the assassination. Why should someone  kill a 78 year old man, that too a fragile and physically weak person, who had all through his life preached non-violence and peace? Why did Godse kill him? Is the killing  a mere  outburst of a young Hindu Maharashtra Brahmin who wanted to punish Gandhi for  his perceived penchant for Muslims or Gandhi’s presumed role in the division of the country or the payment of Rs. 55 crores due to Pakistan on partition?
