Eliar’s Story : He Said Nothing Happened

Eliar’s Story : He Said Nothing Happened

I was molested in a religious setting. I was enticed away from my husband by a monk who is in a position of power in a non-profit Hindu institution. He is a monk who comes from India every year to teach classes. HE promised me love and financial support since my marriage was on the rocks at the time. My vulnerability was exploited, I was coerced to accept him; All the relationship was only in my side. He just pretended. Eventually he molested me. It was so humiliating that I became suicidal, could not tell anyone.
I was abused even after that. After I reported and confronted him in 2017, he said, “Nothing happened!”.
He continues to come and go freely while the institution tries to keep me away from the place.
