I've said this before. Sikhi did a lot in civilising Indians. The Hindu and Muslim attitude towards rape is barbaric.


Rape laws in india are quite peculiar.

If a man and woman get jiggy before marriage and then the man refuses to marry her for any reason she can lay a claim of rape on him even if she wanted it at the time. And the police will prosecute it exactly as a rape.  It was designed to stop men proposing marriage and then abandoning the women after they got what they wanted.

On the other hand, if a woman were to get caught with a man pre-marriage it is very common for her to claim she was raped/forced. The laws are not like they are in the UK etc.


Quick edit: Asking the perpetrator to marry his victim was very common in yesteryear because parents would fear no-one would marry their daughter if she wasn't a virgin, even if it was through no fault of her own. This happens even in Panjab amongst Sikhs as well.
