This Haryana Farmer Married A Gang-Rape Survivor And Is Continuing Her Battle For Justice

Published on 14 January, 2019 at 5:01 pm By

Rape may happen once, but its trauma lasts a lifetime. Last year, a Reuters Foundation study declared India to be the most unsafe country for women due to high risk of sexual violence. It was surprising to see India ranking far above than war-torn Afghanistan and Syria. Remember the shock and horror that Nirbhaya underwent due to the brutal gang rape on a moving bus in the capital, that also rocked the entire nation?

There is no doubt that rape culture is still all around us, due to which sexual assault continues to exist in our society at such alarming rates. However, a strong need is now being felt in the society to end this.

 

 

Jitender Chhatar, a 30-year-old farmer from Haryana’s Jind district has come out as a shinning example as he took charge to change in the point of view society towards the rape victims.

In a state, that has an appalling record of sexual violence against women, and its skewed sex ratio, this move by Chhatar, is really commendable. In a world that squarely holds a woman responsible for her plight, Chhatar not only married a gang rape survivor, but also enrolled her in a law school.

 



 

As per reports, Jitender’s wife was sexually abused by a man who ran a coaching centre, along with four other people. Though his future wife had advised him to reconsider the marriage, upon hearing her story, Jitender not only agreed to marry her, he also became her pillar of support.

His wife told a media house:

“I and my family owe a lot to Jitender as part from fighting off the taboo, he is also facing the ire of the accused who try to frame him in false cases.”

In his fight for justice, Jitender was also offered money and even received threats from the accused. But his determination to get justice for his wife has kept him going. Jitender has also approached Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar’s intervention in the case. Clearly, people like Jitender can inspire many men to come forward and help rape survivors who are otherwise considered taboo in our society.
