‘Abusive’ Alabama family lies to police about daughter being ‘sex trafficked’ by an Indian man she’s dating

Published

on

An Alabama family called police in India and told them their daughter had been “trafficked” by a man she’d flown to the country to meet — but according to the 21-year-old woman, they were lying.

AL.com reported that in mid-September, Whitney Harris made the long flight to India to meet 20-year-old Pulkit Monga, a man she’d connected with online two years prior.

“I left to India to meet my friend and to get away from my abusive mother and grandmother who have mentally and emotionally abused me all my life,” Harris told the website. “I didn’t want them to save me.”

The family went against her wishes, however, when they first had a Christian minister in the city of Amritsar “intercept” her and then came to collect her themselves 10 days later.

Harris’ mother Destiny and father Brett met Monga’s hospitable parents who took them to holy sites and restaurants — all while “slandering” them behind their backs.

Despite not wanting to leave India yet, Harris agreed to buy a return plane ticket to assuage their concerns, but before she was able to book it, “her mother allegedly sent a letter to the local Indian police claiming that Pulkit was a rapist, had drugged their daughter and was a sex trafficker,” the report noted.

After Harris and the Mongas were interrogated by police, the young woman’s family conspired with people from the local Christian church to get her to the airport and out of the country.

According to the report, Harris refused to see her parents upon arrival back home in Alabama — and is working to reunite with Monga as soon as she can.

Along with accusing her family of abuse, the young woman also said family spokesman Jimmy Stewart lied to media about why she went to India.

“Jimmy said that [Pulkit] is poor and his family is poor which is a lie, they are middle-upper class in India and his father earns good money,” Harris told AL.com in an email. “How would [Stewart] know anything different?”

The family also alleged that the friend she is staying with is purposefully keeping her from them — “another lie,” Harris said.

Published

on

A Republican Party insider has told the Washington Examiner's David Drucker that President Donald Trump's racist attacks against four Democratic congresswomen are doing real damage to his efforts to get reelected in 2020.

In particular, GOP insiders fear the president is permanently driving away the suburban women and college-educated white voters that he will need to secure any kind of victory next year, as these voters will not want to be associated with overt racism.

The court, which found that both Beerepoots failed to pay $930,000 in income taxes and other charges in 2017, ordered them to fork over more than $2 million after they couple tried arguing that God did not want them to pay taxes.

Trump targeted Ilhan Omar the same way neo-Nazis targeted me: Progressive comedian

Published

on

President Donald Trump's attacks on four progressive women of color have outraged many across the nation.

And as progressive comedian and commentator Dean Obeidallah wrote for the Daily Beast, the president's attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) we're personal for him for a very difficult reason.

"Donald Trump’s vile smear of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), the hijab-wearing member of Congress, as a supposed supporter of terrorism sounded instantly familiar to me," wrote Obeidallah. "You see, Trump-loving neo-Nazis at The Daily Stormer spewed that identical type of dangerous rhetoric at me too in an effort to destroy my reputation and incite death threats. And they did it for the very same reason Trump defamed Omar, namely because both Omar and I had dared to criticize Trump."
