This is either a story of stunning incompetence, in which a coroner mistakenly ruled someone dead, who was not, or this may have been something much more sinister.
An article from the U.K. Sun reports “A NEWLY married woman was burnt alive in a funeral pyre after doctors mistakenly thought she died from a lung infection, it has been claimed.”
“Rachna Sisodia, 24, was pronounced dead at Sharda hospital…”
“It detailed that there were charred particles in her windpipe and lungs suggesting she may have been breathing when she was being cremated.”
“Police spokesman Rajesh Pandey, who explained the doctors’ verdict, said: ‘This happens when someone is burnt alive. The particles go inside with the breath.'”
“If a person is dead, such particles cannot reach the lungs and the windpipe. So, the doctors concluded that the woman was burnt alive on the pyre.”
How in the world can someone be declared “dead” if she still has a pulse and a body temperature?
Most people would probably conclude that this was just some horrible mistake, but there’s a tradition in India of burning brides if their families do not pay off the husbands with a sufficiently large dowry.
A Wikipedia article on Bride Burning reports “Bride burning or bride-burning is a form of domestic violence practiced in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and other countries located on or around the Indian subcontinent (excluding Sri Lanka). A category of dowry death, bride-burning occurs when a young woman is murdered by her husband or his family for her family’s refusal to pay additional dowry. The wife is typically doused with kerosene, gasoline, or other flammable liquid, and set alight, leading to death by fire. Kerosene is most often used as the fuel. It is most common in India and has been a major problem there since at least 1993.”
“This crime has been treated as culpable homicide and, if proven, is usually accordingly punished by up to lifelong imprisonment or death. Bride burning has been recognized as an important public health problem in India, accounting for around 2500 deaths per year in the country. In 1995, Time Magazine reported that dowry deaths in India increased from around 400 a year in the early 1980s to around 5800 a year by the middle of the 1990s. A year later, CNN ran a story saying that every year police receive more than 2500 reports of bride burning. According to Indian National Crime Record Bureau, there were 1948 convictions and 3876 acquittals in dowry death cases in 2008.”
Given this information that “Bride Burning” did take place in the recent past in India, I wonder if they drugged the woman in this story, paid off a coroner to say she was dead and then carried out one of these bride burnings as a thinly-veiled “mistake.”
The Jules Verne novel “Around the World in 80 days” had one scene where the hero rescues an Indian widow from the ritual of Suttee, which was the burning of the wife a king after his death.
“Bride Burning” over dowries is apparently a much more common event that may still be happening.
The Third World is a lot more primitive and brutal than most Americans realize, which should make it all the more important to keep Third World invaders out of White nations.
