Dad kidnaps own daughter, forces wife into prostitution
Saying that this is an unforgivable act is an understatement.
Stories of violence against women happen all over the globe, including our home here in Asia. Cases of rape and even murder shock and horrify us. Usually in such cases, the male perpetrator is a stranger. However, according to a Psychology Today article, parental child abduction cases are far more common. Here’s one recent shocking story of how a husband used extreme ends to force his wife into becoming a sex worker.
Man forces wife to become sex worker by abducting biological daughter
Recently, one man in India reportedly abducted his biological daughter to threaten his wife into becoming a prostitute.
The wife, Baz Gulla, lodged a complaint at her local police station, which describes how her husband Khadim, had abducted their six-year-old daughter. This was after Baz refused to agree to her husband’s demand that she work as a prostitute.
Furthermore, she explained that her husband was cheating on her with another woman. According to Baz, he went so far as to use up “all the money I’d bring from my mother for the house” for his lover.
Baz told the police her husband was pressuring her into working as a sex worker—a request she has denied over and over again.
Angered by his wife standing up for herself and going against his wishes, Khadim did the unthinkable.
He brought his brother and friend (pinpointed as Inam and Humayun, respectively) into their house. Then, they abducted Khadim’s daughter. The girl is reportedly still missing.
The police have recorded a case against the perpetrators. Presently, investigations are still ongoing.
What to do if you are being emotionally abused by your husband
In this case, the wife had experienced emotional abuse. Emotional abuse is any type of non-physical behavior that hurts another persons feelings and makes them feel that they’re less of a person. Here are some tips to help you handle an emotionally abusive husband:
- Be honest to yourself and accept that you’re a victim of emotional abuse. Being aware that you’re a victim of abuse will help you to find a solution in order to stop being a victim.
- Seek professional help if you’re suffering from emotional abuse. It’s not always something that you can deal with alone, so you will need the help of someone who would be able to help you with therapy so that you can start the healing process.
- Having a support group is also very important. These are people whom you trust, and who will support you while you try to heal from the emotional abuse that you’ve suffered in your marriage.
