Chastity

It makes sense somehow because states were the lawmakers and law was exercised as an instrument to control and maintain the state power at that time.

To resolve this issue, Sita takes part in a ritual test involving fire to prove her purity and faithfulness. Even so, the people spread rumors about her lack of chastity, and Rama banishes her again to
