CHASTITY BELT IN INDORE, INDIA - We have read about male chauvinism and how in the days of yore suspicious men having doubts on the fidelity of their women, forced them to put on chastity belts and thereby ensure their loyalty. However, this is all but part of history and perhaps no where in recent modern times has one read or heard of the ancient practice being put in vogue. But according to a report from Indore, a young man, Sohan Lal Chauhan decided to tear a page from history and practice it on his wife. His wife, who was forced to wear a chastity belt for the last four years, could not bear the humiliation, embarrassment and above all uncomfort and apparently enough became enough for her. She decided to end her life and thereby her misery, consumed poison. A resident of Indiras Nagar in the Sayontiaganj area of Indore, she was rushed to the hospital, where both the doctors and policemen who had taken her for medical attention were dumbfounded to learn of the reported “misdoings’ of her husband, a worker in an auto garage. She told the cops and the doctors on duty that her husband had forcibly put a chastity belt round her private organ and locked the same.

The lock had two keys, which her husband took with him when he went to work after locking the belt and opened it only when he returned home from work. All during this time the woman was forced to keep the belt around her vitals and bear not only the pain but the humiliation and uncomfort. The police took the keys from the man and gave it to the doctors to open the lock and take the women out of her misery. City S P, Rajesh Raghuvanshi is reported to have said that after receiving a report from the doctors, action will be taken against the young man as under law. In the initial interrogation, it was found that Sohanlal used a spiky instrument to pierce the vagina of his wife, so he could fastened a lock there. He was using chastity belt for the last four-year. Raghuvanshi said that the reason behind such practice was doubt over the character of his wife. Raghuvanshi further said that Sohanlal used to lock the private parts of her wife in the morning before leaving for duty and unlocked it after return in the evening to preserve the faithfulness of his wife. He said that it seems that the accused is alcoholic and mentally disturb.

In a classic case of distrust leading to brutality, a Indore (India) man used chastity belt to keep her wife away from having any extra-marital affairs. Crossing the limits of distrust and cruelty, the 45-year-old mechanic from Sayongitaganj was using chastity belt for the last four years to prevent his wife from having sexual intercourse with anybody other than him. The practice of chastity belt is not new in India. There are several incidents, which suggest that women were being forced to wear chastity belts in rural areas of Rajasthan. Violence born of lust and all kinds of cruelty against women causes great disturbances in the world.

Material lust is like a blazing fire, never leaving a person with any peace. Such desires always force people to attempt to satisfy their cravings. The flames of such desires consume all hope for peace in such individuals. When society is made of many such individuals, whose primary interest is to simply satisfy their own desires and gratify their senses, this disorder prevents peace in human society. Society remains in a state of escalating chaos. Such disorder grows to the degree in which society pursues selfish gratification. ... The more you try to satisfy your senses, the more you will come under the control of lust, greed and anger. Lust is there when you want to satisfy your material desires. Greed is there when you want more than you need.  Anger will always be there in some form when you fail to achieve what you want, or when you attain it but then lose it. The unmerciful masters of lust, greed and anger will never leave you alone.
