外文标题：Six out of 10 Indian men admit violence against wives: UN study
NEW DELHI: Six out of 10 Indian men admit to having perpetrated violence against their wives or partners, with men who experienced discrimination as children or faced financial stresses more likely to be abusive, said a study released on Monday.
The report, by the United Nations World Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Washington-based International Center for Research on Women, polled 9,205 men, aged 18 to 49, across seven states in India to understand their views on masculinity, partner violence and son preference.
Violence was defined as emotional such as insults, intimidation and threats, or physical and sexual such as pushing, punching and rape. It also included economic abuse in which a man did not permit his wife or partner to work or took her earnings against her will.

what about the study to see the opposite side of the coin?
Most men in the Middle East know that their wives are in a extra marital affair back home. Women are equally responsible for the tragedy.

What about the torture given by wife? If survey is conducted more than 90% of wives harass husbands either mentally or physically too.
Just do not blame the men. Women too are no saints in India.
