Hardships of being a Woman in India: Man Stabs Wife 25 Times in Broad Daylight in Delhi
In this case, a sad day for women in India sending shockwaves throughout the Country. The 26 year old victim (Neelu) was stabbed 25 times in broad daylight on the streets only because she decided against her husband’s threats to work as a housewife and continued to work. Harish then suspected about Neelu having an extramarital affair when she left him to stay at his parents’ house in Budh Vihar because of the daily fights over her career.
The point here being that a woman is not even allowed to decide her career, and when she does, she has a life threat by her own husband is nothing but horror to even think of. India still predominately being patriarchal in nature, do you think such power is gone out of hand as later the man was arrested after some locals called the police, he reportedly did not even escape and said 'she deserved it’ Who gives the power to a man to decide whether a woman should live or not?

The High Court, on Friday, on the matter pertaining to the Goa Police for lodging FIR under sec. 295A read with sec. 34 of the Indian Penal Code against members of "Dastaan LIVE", an art rock live performance for using the word "OM" and clubbing it with phrases like "Ullu Ka Pattha" thereby outraging religious feelings of Hindus, the HC contended that insults to religion offered unwittingly or carelessly or without any deliberate or malicious intention to outrage the religious feelings of that class do not come within the preview of sec. 295A of the IPC.
