Abused South Asian men

It will come to many as a surprise that there are abused South Asian men also in many ways by the hands of men and women in their lives.

Abused South Asian men also face some of the same issues as women:

  • Forced Marriages
  • Sexual, verbal, physical and psychological abuse
  • Unhappy marriages with unbearable wives
  • Not accepted for their sexual orientation

The numbers may not be confirmed because of the silence, but there are abused South Asian men.

As in other issues being in South Asian communities, silence seems to be the best coping mechanism.

Amazingly, men and women are starting to speak up about the issues.

As much as it seems a foreign concept, there are hardly any resources available.

I have met many men who have signs of child abuse, but they would never admit. If you confront them, they will stop talking to you.

As a friend said that if women want things change, it is in their hands. Men are not going to do anything about it.

The same applies to men in South Asian community to be open to getting help.

There is no reason for back lash; it is the truth and reality and we must admit it.

As South Asian women, we are supportive of our men and will offer them our compassion, understanding and love to get help.

Any type of trauma not handled become a sore for a life time for abused South Asian men.

As a South Asian man, forget about your shame, guilt and inability to do anything at the time to get out of the situation.

This is an open dialogue about abused South Asian men, please share your story, suggestions and resources for abused South Asian men  to get help.
