In some communities of Maharashtra, the reprehensible practice of determining the virginity of a girl before it’s marriage is mandatory.
It is alleged that the girls have to prove their virginity through a virginity test before getting into the pure bond of marriage.
After some social activist came out of their homes and took an initiative to break this stereotype, the Maharashtra government supported them.
This disgraceful practice is highly influential in Kanjarbhat community.
State Minister Ranjit Patil assured a group of activists that “the government will take adequate measures to combat this practice”.
Even after seven decades of independence, these evil practices are alive in our country.
