64 Percent of Nepalese Women Were Victims Of Domestic Abuse 2012

Figures from 2012 show a terrible picture. Sixty-four per cent of Nepali women are victims of domestic and gender-based abuse. About 71 per cent of all victims between 26 and 35 years of age are deemed at risk.

On an annual basis, government figures indicate that 64 per cent of Nepali women suffered domestic abuse last year, 16 per cent of social violence and 7 per cent, rape.

In case of sexual violence, in 59 per cent of cases the violence occurred within the women’s immediate environment, 8 per cent involving incest. About 71 per cent of women aged 26 and 35 per cent is considered at risk.

Some cases are extreme. Sixteen-year-old Shiva Hasami, from Bardia district, was burnt alive on 12 December. Bindu Thakur, 18, from Bara, endured the same fate on the 26th.  Mankala Badi, from Dailekh, was set on fire by her husband but survived with serious injuries.

However, it was another case that sent shockwaves across the country.

On her return home after two years working in Saudi Arabia, Sita Rai was abducted and raped by a police officer at Kathmandu Airport.

“Looking at the cases of deaths and burning alive, poverty is the cause,” said Krishna Bhattachan. “In Terai, parents worry when a girl is born because they have to provide her with a large dowry. Those who cannot afford it choose violence and kill their own daughters.”


But it’s not only women who suffer in Nepal, Tibetan refugees who manage to escape their country are now in the hands of Nepal’s police and government and also China who use their long claws everywhere to hurt Tibetans. Even animals are not safe. Down below is a video where Nepalese police badly abuse and kill a dog. It is total madness…

And the next video is filmed when Nepalese police attack Tibetans. Nepal police detained more than 100 Tibetans exiles who were protesting against Chinese rule over their homeland.

  1. This is the first time I search a blog, so I don’t know if this is the appropriate place to send a message…but here goes:) I am on a mission to stop all abuse in the world. I chose to stay in a abuse most of my 52 years on the planet and am now free. I wrote a book that was just published in March and I am trying to get it to anyone with the same mission as me. I certainly would be glad to send you one or you can go to Amazon and see if you are interested. The book is called Me and My Shadow
    Move from Fear and Control to Love and Freedom. My thought is if you and people in this place of passion can read it, and if they agree with the message we can save more women then if I do this alone. Please share your thoughts-and thank you for listening and for what you are doing.


    • Hi Diana, It does sound very interesting! And you are so right, abuse is something that needs to be stopped. I have been in that situation myself and was happy enough to get out in time.. We all need to come together for that important cause..
