One reply on “JV Players accused of sexual intimidation”

Hazing is known as “Ragging” in India.

The situation is so horrible that at-least 22 deaths have occurred since 2000 in India due to ragging (hazing). Many have been crippled, thousands have been sexually abused often in a way no less than gangrape.

Both boys and girls are victims, and often the raggists’ victim is of their opposite sex.

In the face os such a deadly situation and when the authorities of the concerned institutions are intentionally turning a blind eye to this untold version of the Abu Ghraib, the Honbl. Supreme court of India has issued a historical order. The court ordered that if the authorities are reluctant, they will be tried against, as well. It prescribed strict punishments to deal with ragging (hazing).

We are group of volunteers, working as a Non-profit organization to eliminate this social evil of ragging (hazing).

We shall be glad to know if anyone shares our concern.

Thanks and regards,

Dr. Kushal Banerjee,
No Ragging Foundation
