The brave woman who protested dowry in her chaddi’s

You’ve probably seen this photo of Pooja Chauhan and the news video by now:


If you haven’t, from the Times of India:

RAJKOT: Conservative Rajkot went into convulsions on Wednesday when alleged mental and physical abuse by her husband’s family drove a 22-year-old woman to strip to her underwear and walk through the city in protest.

Pooja Chauhan said she had taken to this unique protest after being constantly harassed for not bringing dowry and bearing a girl-child.

The effect was immediate. The police arrested her husband Pratapsinh Chauhan, parents-in-law and neighbours Veji Bharwad and Vinu Dalit on Wednesday, after she threatened to scale up her protest and march nude to the police commissioner’s office if she did not get justice.

“The arrests were made on the basis of Pooja Chauhan’s complaint. We are also planning to take action against Pooja for indecent behaviour in a public place. However, we will examine her mental condition before taking any action,” said Rajkot police commissioner K Nityanandam.

    Dare I say that it seems to me that either this was staged by one of the TV channels, or they wear unusually good quality underwear in Rajkot these days.

    Let’s not trivialize this issue.It takes spunk to strip to one’s underwear as a show of protest against any social evil…especially in a largely conservative society.Hats off to Pooja for attempting this unique form of protest.
    I think her husband should have been paraded in the nude 🙂

  4. sandeep says:

    yes, soulplane, point noted.

    Though physical and mental abuse of women due to demand of dowry is very common in india but the fact is that some women are also at fault.It is not always husband is guilty but in india the law being pro-women poor husbands never gets justice and no one is ready to hear them atleast. The way this girl is protesting show that all is not well with her and before arresting her in laws did the police investigate who is at fault.

    hi how are you.

  22. Frank says:

    Women should be free all over the world. If she wants to walk around in her underwear so be it. This is the 21st century so get over it. India is obviously a backward country. I’ve been there and will never go back. Do to the fact that women are not free like men. And it is a very dirty country. Way to crowded.

  27. Joyati says:

    all those people who are saying to remove the picture due to the city’s reputation are wrong.
    it already has bad reputation due to the dowry abuses and deaths.
    removing this picture doesn’t make a difference.
