What is ragging called in different countries?

Ragging is also known as hazing in other parts of the world. Hazing is a form of initiation ritual that involves the humiliation and abuse of new members of a group. It is often used as a way to bond the group together and to test the new members' loyalty.

Hazing can take many forms, including verbal abuse, physical assault, forced drinking, and sexual harassment. It can be very harmful to the victims, both physically and mentally.

Hazing is illegal in many countries, including India, the United States, and Canada. However, it still occurs in some schools and colleges.

If you are being hazed, it is important to speak up. You can talk to your parents, teachers, or the school authorities. You can also call the anti-hazing helpline. There is help available, and you don't have to go through this alone.
