Police Guard India’s First Married Lesbian Couple From Their Own Bloodthirsty Families

25-year-old university student Savita married her 20-year-old wife Veena (pictured) after a judge dissolved Savita’s forced marriage to a man. But now 14 of Veena’s relatives and villagers have threatened the couple with ‘dire consequences’ that might amount to an honor killing (aka murdering someone whose very existence embarrasses the fuck out of you). Local police have put the women in a safe-house with 24-7 protection. It’s like a honeymoon cottage… OF DOOM. And how long are these women supposed to stay surrounded by guards in this cozy little prison, exactly?

      I’m glad they’re being protected. In some places, the cops would “overlook” the threats against them.

      It possible to comment without turning into a racist. You’d think the political history of India would make at least some people weary of busting out the S word.

      WHEN I READ THE LESBIAN COUPLES STORY AS WELL AS SAW THE VIDEO, I REALIZE THAT BOTH THE LADIES HAVE NO SANSKAR FROM THEIR FAMILY AND THEY MIS-USE THE FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS OF INDIA. THOSE ARE PROTECTING THEM, THEY SHOULD THINK WHERE OUR SOCIETY IS GOING?
      SO MY SUGESTION IS UNDERSTAND THEM THE LIFE’S REALITY ALSO MOTIVATE TO DO PRANAYAM FROM A WELL KNOWN GUIDE. SO THE MISTAKEN DID BY 2 LADIES CAN BE EXCUSE BY GOD. I THINK THIS TYPE OF MARRIGE IS UN-NATURAL BRING THE SOCIETY TOWARDS DESTROY.
      SO I AM VERY MUCH ANGRY ON THE WEBSITE, PRINT MEDIA & ELECTRONIC MEDIA.SO IT IS MY REQUEST WHEN THIS TYPE OF INCIDENT OCCURE THROUGHOUT INDIA DONOT PUBLISH OR GIVE ANY VIDEO ON THE WEBSITE.

      THNAKING YOU.
