Mother Ties Up Five-Year-Old Girl on Roof to Burn in Scorching 43C (109F) Delhi Heat As ‘Punishment for Not Completing Homework’
Christians and social conservatives who revere motherhood and the nuclear family too much often like to say that parenthood is necessary to make a person more godly, loving, and responsible. They shame women who never marry or never have a kid for never marrying or for not having a kid.
I’ve never had a kid, but if I did, I would NOT tie a child up on a burning hot roof just because she didn’t do her homework, FFS. That is an excessive punishment.
An Indian mother has been charged after she allegedly tied up her 5-year-old daughter on a scorching-hot roof to punish her for not doing her homework.
The horrific incident took place in the Khajuri Khas section of New Delhi on June 2, when temperatures reached 113 degrees, reported the Indian news agency ANI.
Police said the girl’s mother tied up the kindergartner’s arms and legs with a rope — and then left her on the roof of the family’s home to punish her for laziness.

A cruel mother in India tied up her five-year-old daughter and left her on the roof to burn in scorching Delhi heat as punishment for not completing her homework.
Disturbing video shows the girl kicking and screaming as she tries to free herself while the painfully hot 43C (109.4F) sun of India’s capital Delhi beats down on her.

NDTV reported that the mother had left her daughter on the roof for five to seven minutes.
It is not yet known whether or not the girl sustained any burns or injuries.
The girl’s father, Raj Kumar, a tailor, was not in the house when the ordeal happened. He told police he had gone to get his bicycle repaired.
His wife was at home with the girl and her 11-year-old brother.
Mr Kumar said that after receiving a call from his father, who saw the child tied up on the terrace, he rushed home: ‘My wife got angry and punished her. When my father told me, I scolded my wife a lot that day but the next day, a relative from our village sent me the video. I scolded my wife.’
The girl’s uncle, named as Sunil, claimed that the child’s mother Sapna ‘beats her kids on every small issue’. …

Motherhood does not make women more loving. Parenthood does not make men or women more ethical, godly, or mature.
