Madhya Pradesh

Shameful Act of Government of India

As many as 350 women were allegedly put through virginity and pregnancy tests during a mass marriage programme organized by the Madhya Pradesh government at Harad village in the tribal-dominated district of Betul

Sources said the tests were apparently ordered by government officials.

The district administration has ordered a magisterial probe into the incident.

Hindu reported that
Nine tribal women, who were to participate in a mass wedding were allegedly forced to take pregnancy tests and turned away after they tested positive.

mostly tribals had registered for the mass wedding under the Mukhyamantri Kanyadan Yojna.

Beneficiaries of this scheme are entitled to Rs. 13,000 worth ‘wedding gifts’ including a mangalsutra, a cycle, some utensils and clothes.

Now in this case what will happen,  a commission or inquiry will be set up and it will give result after few years declaring that no test were conducted.

Even if test conducted no one will get the punishment.

No tribal women will get any compensation for humiliation, which they suffered because of Indian government employees.

They should have adopted some other measures like obtaining an undertaking from bride and groom to avoid breaking the relationship after the wedding.This method is barbaric.
