India Marital Rape


Yup, Indian Marriages Are Still Sacred – Rape And All

The answer given by Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi in Rajya Sabha on 10 March on the question of whether the government has plans to criminalize marital rape, is a word-to-word copy of the answer given by Minister of State for Home Affairs Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary in Rajya Sabha in April 2015. Essentially, the government is saying, "You are not allowed to rape strangers, but if you really need sex, go home and rape your wife."
