Agnipariksha - Wait. What?

I thought Agnipariksha was an Indian TV show? I guess it also means that rape victims in India can balance a rock on their head to prove purity.

The rape survivor, who became pregnant as a result of the attack and had been denied an abortion by Gujarat High Court in India, has to undergo a ritual, called ‘Agnipariksha‘. If she passes this ‘sanctity test’, she would be able to live with her husband again.
