Bihar wife set on fire for lack of salt in cooked meat
Victim in hospital as police conduct raids to arrest her absconding husband
He is a lucky person as from jail he can get the food with normal salt and Jail Warden has to monitor the salt level at all the times otherwise he may set fire even the jail. These are uncultured people for which punishment is mandatory.

Shamed to call my self an Indian, where brutality and cruelty against women still prevail.
Sachin Timothy, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
As much as I am shocked to read about this incident, I am shocked to hear people brushing it off as a minute thing to show their patriotism. As an Indian I may be proud of my country, but not ignore hard evidences of deteriorating law and order in the country. It is time for people to wake up and demand for better as have millions in the Arab world. There is already encouraging signs after the Delhi incident but there is still a long way to go.

I think it's disgracefull what happened to this poor woman and I do hope that she will recover, but the scars will be left forever.

As long as the public are spectators to crimes nothing much can be done. When a crime is happening the public should get hold of the thug and hand over to the police. But the public are afraid to get into such cases because of horrible Indian laws.

Feel so ashamed when I call myself Indian. Believe me, this is really embarassing for Indians what is going on.

All people do is watch. No one offers help! High times to wake up and take responsibility.
Farhan, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
i am really proud as an indian..these type of minute matter never decrese my thinking about my lovely country. in the world only one country you can see this much culture and religion. people are living under one roof. i remember once my mother was sick, my hindu neighbour (mother) she give me food, she cared for me like her son. we are living (hindus,christains,muslims or any relegons )always like family. Any one in the world never can see anywhere this type of loving life. please dont blame always for some minute things.

it is utter shame when another nationality ask - oh its your country and that incient happened. So embarrising it is. Where are the law makers. One after another the cruality against woman is increasing like anything. At one stage it is a rape, another a brutial mruder. Shame on Indian law makers. Even after so many voices raised, the law makers are showing a deaf ear. It is a real shame.
