India has always been known as a country inhabiting various cultures, traditions and religions. As Nehru claimed, the country showcases “Unity in diversity”. However, when it comes to religious tolerance the land has failed to show up when an incident of inter-religious correspondence comes forth.
The news published in The Hindu stated that a 32 year-old female homeopath was found to be a hostage in a Delhi based Hindu family. She was 25 years-old and at the time of the most important phase of her life, her entering into the institution of marriage, she was hosted by her family for being acknowledged in an affair with a Muslim boy by her family.

She was refused any kind of socialization with no access to internet or telephones. She remained locked inside the four walls of her house since 2009. Her coming out is no miracle, nor it is an outcome of the fact that her parents have realized their mistake. In the absence of her mother, she called the women’s helpline number 181 to seek help and was thus “imprisoned” by the team.
“Her mother reportedly threatened to commit suicide if she tried to escape, her father would thrash her and her family members even threatened to kill her for bringing dishonor to the family,” according to the Hindu report.

One finds the city as epicenter for the celebrations of the “International Women’s Day”, however, the reach of this freedom where all women can exercise their needs seems to lack in a society which apparently discusses the movements like Save Girl Child and educate her.

The girl while being inside the walls of her house attempted a failed suicide being saved by the family members. The DCW reported, the words she uttered at first were: ‘please rescue me’. Further, the girl also disclosed how her family would show her videos from ‘love jihad’ claiming her boyfriend to be plotting against her.
She didn’t take any action against her parents and even didn’t ask for any hold against her boyfriend if he had moved on.  She is under the protection of DCW in their shelter and is happy to be rescued from the life as bad as in a prison.
