Images of a cop thrashing his daughter in a Bangalore street have gone viral on social media. The images of the shameful act were posted on Facebook by two young women who intervened to save the 25-year-old girl.

In her Facebook post, Nivedita, one of the woman who intervened, said the man, a policeman from Madurai, beat his daughter “black and blue”, while at least 50 people on the street simply watched.

The man was allegedly angry about his daughter’s relationship.

“The parents had heard rumors of their daughter having an affair and was hence “teaching her a lesson” refusing to listen to her or believe her denying the affair. The father wanted to take her back to Madurai , against the wishes of the adult daughter and forcibly marry her to someone of their choice,” said the Facebook post.

“If a policeman chooses to physically and publicly abuse his adult daughter, how are we safe in the hands of such “protectors of law”?? If a teacher mistrusts and blames her adult daughter while supporting her husband’s abusive behavior, how can we entrust our children’s grooming to such “educators and shapers of young India” ??

      That daughter survived probably because it happened in South and the father is from Tamilnadu. The lady probably would not be alive today if she were from UP, Bihar, Haryana, Rajasthan type North Indian states!

        If this happened in USA, the cop would go to jail for number of years and possibly would not be taken back into the police force.

          A young lady is an adult should be treated with respect and honor. No father should be physically mistreating his adult daughters. This cop should be fired and put in jail for ault. And the Bangalore cops who did not take action should be suspended without pay for several months. Terrible commentary on Tamil culture. I am from Chennai and this is unacceptable from cops.

                    Now this stupid cop will tell you that he goes to temple daily and does puja for Saraswati and Durga, so there is no chance that he could be anti-woman.

                              Here in the west both males and females start having ual partners from the age of 16 onwards and by the age of 25 on an average they have relationships with atleat 17 multiple partners. Do you want Indian society to drift that way and loose the culture of more than 25000 years old and loose what India stands for? Both males and females teenagers start alcohol abuse from the age of 18 and start taking cannabis and other drugs to the extent of becoming alcoholics and habitual of drugs. Do we want our generation to be rotten like this, does India want its young people to drift to this kind of mode of darkness life-style when in reality that age is to build one's own future for the financial security for the w life? In the west because of the above reason mostly young people are doing knife crimes and other anti-social crimes even being educated. The crime in India is due to large potion is not aptly educated and lack of facilities , now imagine on top of this we don't check our males and female teenagers , when the tendency to do wrong is at the paramount; the building stages of the character and that would reflect the national character as well. Do you want your children and teenagers to not to be checked and guided, do you really believe that parents have no right to guide their flicking mind and if adamant to use force for the benefit of the teenager . All of you please watch the movie "EDEN LAKE" to understand how much horrifying it could be if you do not check your teenagers and young adults. Young mind is always resistant and adamant up-to that extent that never listen to the logic and verbal arguments , and for their own benefit the well-wishers their own parents have to use physical force. Imagine if we all stop checking the wrong doings of our young adults. Our nation will be more rotten as it is already because of obvious apparent problems. At the age of 16 , here in the west parent tell their kids to start earning and tell them to try to leave the house by the age of 19. In contrast what does Indian parents do? They keep nurturing the young adult till these young adults achieve their career goals and parents don't go to exotic vacations, don't enjoy their own life but keep on working to collect money for higher education and then marriage expenses. No parent in the west put money on the higher education and on the marriage of the adult and that is why they don't have a say in the life of the young adult.

                                          Poor father!! But he shouldn't have beaten his daughter & that too in public, that's a disguise...but again the father's behavior could just be a reaction to the news, problem with father like us is that it's difficult when we see our loved ones are subject to such talks - who knows what was the talk of the town. I have sympathy for both

                                            Let us not take our children as our property. They are individuals with their own lives and dreams..let them live if you really love them.
