English: Sati (Devanagari सती, the feminine of sat "true"; also called suttee) refers to a funeral practice within some communities Hindu communities in which a recently widowed woman immolates herself, typically on her husband’s funeral pyre. Without explicit ethical support, literary evidence about the practice appears from the fifth century BC, while archeological evidence appears from 5th century CE. Initially, the evidence points to an origin of the practice within the warrior aristocracy on the Indian subcontinent. With Hindu expansion outside of India, the practice has been attested to have been practiced in a number of localities in Southeast Asia, such as at Bali (Indonesia). The practice was outlawed by the British colonialial troops in 1829 within British India. In Nepal, Sati was not abolished as legalized practice until 1920. Never having been more than a fairly rare custom in India or other countries, the custom is still today occasionally adhered to, despite the 150 year old ban. The Indian Sati Prevention Act from 1987 makes it criminal to aiding, abetting, even only "glorifying" the act of sati, placing upon those who could prevent the act a legal duty to prevent it from happening.
