Woman files bullying plaint; after ‘menstruation’ debate on social media

she posted a poem on her Facebook page on taboos attached to menstruation

In a rather strange incident, a law student from Kerala has filed a police complaint alleging cyber bullying by right-wing groups.

This came about after she posted a poem on her Facebook page on taboos attached to menstruation.

It is said that

the abusers alleged that the poem on a menstruating

goddess hurt their religious sentiments, 18-yr-old Navami Ramachandran, from Mallappally in Pathanamthitta.

The woman claimed she received threats on social media.

An activist of the Students Federation of India, the teenager posted the poem to extend support to another youngster who had also faced a similar threat for speaking out on menstruation on social media.

Navami alleged that even her school-going sister was not spared and was threatened by a group of unidentified people earlier this week.

A few bike-borne persons, with their faces obscured by masks, threatened her younger sister Lekshmi, she alleged in another post.

Based on a complaint by her family about the alleged attack on Lekshmi, police registered a case and began a probe.
