    Indian adolescents support wife beating, says UNICEF report : North News - India Today

    A majority of Indian boys and girls justify wife beating in the households, a survey by the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef) has found.

    The findings of the survey were shocking as not just men, but even adolescents in the age group of 15 to 19 feel that wife beating is justified.

    The Unicef's "Global Report Card on Adolescents 2012" says that 57 per cent of adolescent boys in the country think a husband is justified in beating his wife.

    Moreover, over half of the Indian adolescent girls -- around 53 per cent of them -- think that a husband is justified in beating his wife.

    In comparison, 41 per cent women in Bangladesh and 54 per cent in Sri Lanka harbour a similar feeling. In Nepal, however, the prevalence of both men and women justifying domestic violence is inordinately high at 88 per cent and 80 per cent respectively.

    According to the report, societal attitudes that convey acceptance or justification of domestic violence are making girls and women more vulnerable to abuse.

    The report explains that because of reporting bias, this might be an under estimation of the actual size of the problem in several countries.

    UNICEF question : kya pati apni patni ko maar sakta hai?
    Kid's answer: Haan

    Unicef translates it to, kids support wife beating

    Now UN forces govt to launch million dollar re-education program to teach kids about the evils of wife beatings

    Waste of govt funds, while the parasitic NGO's will rejoice at the free money they are going to receive

    Soon this report will be discussed all over the media and talk-shows without cross checking the authenticity and reliability of the questions asked and whether they were correctly translated

    Surprising results. Would be interesting to find out the sample size and survey methods used.

    Sad.

    I can think of two reasons.

    1) Parents: Mom getting beaten by dad and its accepted by the child that this is how life is. Plus mom tells the girls that man is all powerful pati parmeshwar and they are pair ki jooti (despicable)

    2) Influence of TV. All the soaps have all kinds of crap where the lady is always crying and kind of accepted as part of life. They need to ban all silly soaps and come out of it. No creativity at all in television industry. I watch cartoons with my kids which is better.

    before some people get deceived by this report, read UN's plan to rule the world. they started the lucifer trust, now name changed to lucis trust after it got exposed :laugh:

    this report is part of UN's social engineering schemes to break societal relations and re-mould it according to its plan

    Or maybe because such things only happen behind closed doors in a home?

    While the survey results are doubtful, lets not brush it under the carpet.

    Nothing can be done really if the wife accepts everything.

    The "according to a recent study/survey/research" crap etc can be very misleading and destructive because the same survey done on the same sample of data with the same methods can create conflicting results.Also there is error % which can be 5% to 50% thus wastegae of resources.Being in survey business some time ago I can say this. :confused::confused:

    And someone said here very aptly the reason behind can be to use/extract money as well. :lol:

    Actually the so called developed countries are suffering from the same domestic violence which is not much different.

    Domestic Violence (aka wife beating) is a very disturbing but common occurrence in the US. They rarely get reported because of USA's huge overall clout.

    I think they're reported only that it appears it is the men that are abused...

    I know, hence the comment. I am in a similar industry and one thing I learnt is depending on your hypothesis..one can twist survey results as required.
