To the long list of crimes the British are guilty of against Indians, let’s add one more – Virginity tests on dozens of Indian girls.
According to an AP story, the British High Commission conducted tests on 73 women in New Delhi and nine in Bombay between 1976 and 1979.
The reason offered for conducting the virginity tests on sati Savitris was to weed out bogus immigration claims.
Although the news that the British conducted virginity tests on Indian girls is not new, the scale of their testing is higher than previously disclosed.
Here’s an excerpt from the AP story:
Newly discovered documents indicate that the British government concealed how often it administered so-called “virginity tests” to female immigrants hoping to enter the country in the 1970s on marriage visas.
The documents, unearthed by legal researchers Marinella Marmo and Evan Smith from Australia’s Flinders University, showed that the tests — meant to prove that women coming into Britain to marry were virgins — had been administered more than 80 times.
Although the tests first drew condemnation in the late 1970s, the extent to which the practice had taken place was not clear until now. The British government had previously acknowledged only two cases, both done at Heathrow Airport.
Wonder how many of the Indian girls the British tested were virgins?
Since it was the 70s and pre-marital sex was mostly taboo, we’d bet at least 90% of the Indian girls tested were virgins.
Today, of course, the ratio of Indian boys and girls who have left any of their orifices unexplored pre-marriage would trend far lower. Isn’t that what they call development? 😉
Given the increase of Indian porn in the last couple months, it really wouldn’t surprise me if only 60% of Indian girls living in the west were virgins.
Most Indian girls that came from India are very shy whereas the one’s that actually grew up here in the states are probably more likely to have premaritial sex than their cousins from India. so much for those “arranged” marriages!
We’d say that currently, whether in India or USA, the percentage of our young girls and boys who have not played the Show me yours, and I’ll show you mine addictive game is likely to be less than 25%.
Of course, that’s just a hypothesis and the above number might even be lower. 😉
considering that 70% of the girls that i went to school with are now mommies,i would say about,when talking about American girls, about 15% are virgins (haven’t had ANY sex whatsoever) whereas the one’s who haven’t had actually intercourse to be about the same as your estimate (25%)
Also has to do with the food and liquids consumed these days.
Hmm, In India, it may be somewhere between 40 – 45% – taking that game into consideration.
40-45% for both boys and girls?
If it’s 40%-45%, we wonder why many Americans head to the erstwhile Soviet Union for mail-order brides.
Isn’t India a better bet for fresh maal? 😉
i knew a guy from the old photo shop who had one of those “mail order brides” gues what?not even 2 weeks after her papers were finalized,she divorced the poor guy and cost him his house!if that’s not a hint i dont know what is.there are many Indian college girls where i live,both nri and american,but sadly i havnt had a chance to ask them out.
Obviously the guy you knew is an idiot if he has not heard of a pre-nuptial agreement.
hey i wont agrue with you on that,he wasn’t a genuis when he did that.the poor guy had to close his shop and find another job that paid better
Well, I am yet to play the ‘Show me yours, and I’ll show you mine’ addictive game! 😛
Mera number kab aayegaaa? 🙁
