Last month after visiting an aunt, a 21-year-old Buddhist nun in Nepal was returning to her monastery when bad weather forced her bus to stay the night in a rural town. According to reports, she had left the bus but was pulled back into it and raped by the bus driver and four other men.
Initially flown to India for treatment, she was brought back to Kathmandu last week. There, a government teaching hospital refused her emergency treatment until the next day when an official from the Health Ministry came to oversee her admission into the hospital.
This event has raised controversy throughout Nepal, not least of all in Parliament, who were being asked to give free treatment and compensation to the nun. The government has moved to help her. Also, some traditional Buddhist monasteries are saying that she cannot return as a nun due to her lack of celibacy; that this was involuntary is not a factor in their stance.
