Sex, moarte si zei. Traditia "devadasi" in India


"Sex, Death and the Gods"

Un documentar BBC despre traditia devadasi:

The devadasi are Hindus who are married to god in childhood, and at puberty sold for sex. In this fascinating film by acclaimed director Beeban Kidron, we go on an intimate journey into the twilight world of the devadasi and meet the girls of Karnataka, southern India who are forced to live in this ancient tradition despite it having been declared illegal for more than 60 years.
The documentary investigates the surprising history of this little-understood community, reveals their rich and privileged past as concubines to the princes and priests of India's ruling class and explores their heritage as dancers and entertainers.


Pe scurt: in unele zone din India exista o traditie in care parintii-si vand fiicele odata ce ajung la pubertate pentru a sluji la un templu, iar acolo ele devin prostituate (templu = bordel); sclavie-sexuala promovata prin religie.

Evident, majoritatea victimelor sunt din casta de jos.




Religia si maltratarea de copii, un alt episod... Cand mai auziti de expresia "mireasa lui Hristos", sa dati link spre acest documentar, pentru ca obiceiurile sunt foarte asemanatoare.
