ending violence in the Indian home
While praying this morning I got a thought about violence toward women. This occurs everywhere and is usually done by men, but it is called DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. In Western Countries it is a crime, punishable by prison time. In other words, Western culture does not see this as acceptable. Because of the anger that causes this violence, many shelters have been created to house women and children from an abusive spouse.
I'm wondering what it would take to make wife or children beating a crime in India and what it would take to motivate the police and judges to punish men for doing it. Does this seem possible? If we could stop domestic violence, boys growing up would not see it and would not grow up thinking it was OK. Thoughts?
