Indian activist: Benedict XVI's peace message an invitation to be welcomed with hope and courage

Campaign

"In his message - says Raghuvanshi - the Holy Father correlated peace with the gap between rich and poor. Peace without justice is a symptom of a culture of silence and impunity." This, he explains, "means that we need to support the countries and peoples in need. What is the message of Jesus, why was he born into a poor family? In order to bring dignity to the poorest. Nobody is excluded from the grace and dignity conferred by the glory of God, the gap between rich and poor is not democratic "and" is generating conflicts around the world. "

Urgent Appeal: India: Indian patriachy with nexus with corrupt police system is failing to save a woman from violence of her husband

Anti Torture Initiative, Anti Violence Initiative, Campaign, Take Action, Women Rights Initiative

PVCHR office received a 23-year-old woman Neelam (name changed) who was in trouble due to the atrocities by her husband. He used to abuse her every now and then, attacked her dignity in public by humiliating her in front of people, sexually assaulted her and made MMS. She suffered all this at the hand of her husband. She was not allowed to talk to any of the relatives, friends or neighbours and was threatened of dire consequences if she would speak to someone.

It is possible that his previous wife too was tortured like this and out of frustration she committed suicide in the house. However he could convince the in-laws and there was no case filed against him therefore he has a high spirit to commit such offences against the woman he marry. He would take names of musclemen while talking and flaunt their names as in close proximity. One the victim tried lodging a complaint with the Khojwa police-out-post but instead of listening to her woes the cops there tried to convince and threaten her to go back.

Once when she was upset with the torture of her husband she escaped to her mother’s house. But then he sent her a packet in which there were her clothes that were cut in to tiny pieces. He told her that I have sent your clothes now but if you do not return back soon I will do the same with your children so if she wanted has children to live she should come back. Even then she refused to go back. Then her brother Shyamsunder was lifted by cops and held captive in the police station. He was set free only when she went back.
