Imagine the amount of pain and insult she might have gone through. All the beautiful pictures of women empowerment came crashing down and started looking like ugly jokes.

The incident happened in Churu, where a woman had to walk naked to the police station to report harassment by her in-laws. The incident occurred in Bidasar area of Churu, where the woman reported harassment by in-laws in absence of her husband.

Why and how such incidents take place is the Question we are asking!

However, this incident is shameful for us as a society and makes us hang our heads in shame. The in-laws not only assaulted their daughter in law but also let her out of the house in that situation. Tearing the clothes and still not being ashamed is the next level of shamelessness and hard-heartedness. The conduct of the people on the way was even more shameful because most of them are the much-touted Moral Police. Instead of helping the victim, they started clicking pictures, because hey! who Humanity? and Why not!
