Indian women beat their male harassers with belts in viral video
To paraphrase Samuel L. Jackson these women “have had it with these motherf******
snakes male harassers on this motherf****** plane bus!” Friday, two sisters fought back against three men they claim were harassing them. Sunday, the police arrested the men. The incident, which a bus-rider filmed on a cell phone, is now a viral video sensation. The women, 22-year-old Aarti and 19-year-old Pooja, were riding a bus home in India’s Rohtak district when, they say, three male passengers started to harass them physically. Pooja recalls, “The men started to abuse me and touch me. ” Then, Pooja explained, “They called a friend on the phone and told him to ‘come over because we have to beat up some girls’.” Now that is a loyal friend. So, the sisters took matters into their own hands: “No one came forward in the bus to help us. So we took out our belts in self-defence [and hit the men]. If only the other passengers had helped us, we would not have needed to retaliate in this way.” The sisters also called the police who arrested the three men. Senior police official S Anand says the police are considering taking action against the bus driver for his failure to follow protocol, which would have been to take the bus to the nearest police station. The story, and the #RohtakBravehearts hashtag have been blowing up on the internets.
