What can I say? Show's the mentality of the police






Or are you unfamiliar with the term (which is commonly used in India)? If that's the case then here is the a link to wikipedia on eve teasing.

Might I assume that 'eve teasing' is slang for 'soliciting', as in prostitution?

No, that is not the correct interpretation.
Eve teasing is a euphemism used in India for sexual harassment or molestation of women by men

Thanks for the clarification, siddharth. So don't these cops think of asking a woman if she's being harrassed before beating on the mate?

The shocking thing is, the cops didn't beat the women's partner (much). The lady cops beat the women!

From the article
Young couples sitting in the park were horrified when suddenly out of the blue policemen started chasing and beating them without any provocation.

Couples were randomly caught and then the girls were slapped around and asked about their male friends.

Oops. I misread that the first time around.

Well, I haven't seen girls being beaten, but cops in India do target couples. Its not possible for a girl to go out with a guy, especially in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. The situation is far better in Gujarat and the south, though.
A friend of mine was thrown out of a garden by a cop once and her parents were called...she and her boyfriend weren't even doing anything, they just wanted some privacy. And both were adults.
I wonder when cops will stop harrassing couples and focus on the more important problems...

It happened in Tamil Nadu too!
Few couples were sitting in a park and this police people thrash them.
In some schools and colleges, boys are not allowed to talk to girls (you're fined/suspended)
In a private party, a couple kissed each other, a reporter happened to take a photo and displayed it in the front page of a magazine. The police instead of arresting the reporter for invading privacy arrested the couple, cancelled the license of the hotel where the party took place!

It is just sickening when these politicians and policemen harass people in the name of "Moral-Policing"(Someone please explain moral-policing to me?) :grumpy:

Reshma,
Its really aggravating to see 'moral policing' everywhere... a few days ago, there was an article in the local newspaper (Ahmedabad) talking about a high court judgement to stop various 'days' in colleges in Gujarat from being celebrated. And we all know what a big fuss is made about Valentine's Day. I find all this completely ridiculous...I mean, don't people have better things to do and more serious cases to attend to?

The predominant mentality of most Indians is: "If eve-teasing happens, it is because the girls dress provocatively".:mad: It is THIS attitude that puts the blame squarely on the victims instead of the offenders since women get harassed irrespective of what dress they wear.
But what more annoying is when these hypocritical politicians sitting in the parliament tell us what is "morally correct" and make ambiguous statements on what is morally appropriate for the youths.:grumpy: I think it is high time that these people break away from this stupid cobwebs of morality and focus on constructive projects like ensuring more public security rather than preaching morals to us.
