"Murga punishment" Wikipedia (via DBPedia)

Murga (also spelled murgha) is a stress position used as a punishment in parts of South Asia, (such as Northern India Bangladesh and sometimes in Pakistan). It is used primarily in educational institutions. Occasionally, it is also used by the police who use it as a punishment for petty crimes and eve teasing (sexual harassment), usually administered in public-view.The word murga means rooster in Hindi. In this punishment, the punished person takes the position where he is made to look like a rooster. This is done by squatting, and then looping the arms behind the knees and firmly holding the ears. It can become very painful after a few minutes. Over the years, corporal punishment has been banned in schools in Pakistan and although caning is still frequent, the Murga punishment is now rarely, if ever, used.Although Murga Punishment is usually applied on boys, but sometimes it is also used for girls. One of the famous Pakistani singer Annie Khalid claimed, that she was given this punishment from her husband while she was tortured. In one state of Indian Punjab, a girls' school principal was suspended when someone from the school leaked out pictures of girls punished with Murga on school grounds. The students also claimed that this sort of punishment was often practiced by the principal on the girls. In 2013, a student in Alwar died after being forced to contort her body as part of the 'murga' position.Murga also be used as a position for spanking, though it is rarely used. The position is also used as a form of mental bondage in BDSM practices. more »
