Men are so afraid of marriage that they are being kidnapped to be forced into marriage

New Delhi It may sound curious but a latest government survey shows 209 men were kidnapped in the country last year to force them into wedlock. This figure includes three men above the age of 50 years and two below the age of ten years.Interestingly, Bihar is the only big state where more men are kidnapped than women, according to the ‘Crime in India — 2007’ report prepared by National Crime Records Bureau.

According to the report, 1268 men were kidnapped from Bihar while figures for women were six less than that. Out of a total of 27,561 kidnapping cases, 12,856 were related to marriage in which 12,874 people were abducted.

Marriage was the main cause of kidnapping and abduction of women which accounted for 61.2 per cent (12,655) of the 20,690 victims from the fairer sex while ransom was the main cause of kidnapping of men representing 8.1 per cent cases (596 out of 7,340).

Among the women, the report said, the largest number of victims of kidnapping for marriage were from the age group of 18-30 years accounting for 7,930 followed by 15-18 years with 2,521.

Five men in the age-group of 18-30 years were among 417 people who were kidnapped for prostitution, with 264 women between 18 and 30 years leading the list of victims.

A total of 28,030 persons were kidnapped or abducted last year registering an increase of 15.4 per cent than the previous year.

More than double number of females (20,690) were kidnapped compared to men (7,340) accounting for 73.8 per cent, the NCRB report said.

Interestingly, not a single case of kidnapping was registered across the country for selling body or body parts while 15 cases of kidnapping for begging were reported.

The highest incidence of kidnapping was reported from Uttar Pradesh which accounted for 16.2 per cent (4,478 cases) followed by Bihar (2,530).

    Interesting numbers. But why are they so afraid? Men have superiority with women in India. What is this fear all about? Are women finally starting to stand up for themselves? Are these men gay and are afraid to speak up and out?

    No matter what, no one should be forced to do anything they don’t want to do.

      Did you hear about the news last month about men in Japan asking for a separate coach in the local train because they were tired of false sexual harassment complaints of women?

      You might be aware that more than 60% of the rape cases filed in USA are false.

      You also might know that more than 30% of the paternity fraud cases in China turn out to be true.

      Do you still say ‘men have superiority with women in India’? Or for that matter any of the countries I have mentioned.

      OR do you think all this is a false propaganda by feminists to make the world believe that women are dominated so that they can get more and more budgets and financial aid. – Crying baby gets the most milk
