Was Dolores Umbridge raped inside the Forbidden Forest?

The climax of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix may have belched some satisfactory answers to myriad questions puzzling the readers throughout the 750-odd pages of this thick volume, but it also left something unanswered and unexplained.

In the book, it was clearly mentioned that nobody got an inkling of what actually transpired in the forest (except for Umbridge and Dumbledore, of course). Harry Potter himself never got to know of the secret (in fact, he never bothered to find it out). And since this book has been written from the point of view of Harry, the readers get to see precisely what he sees (except for an occasional chapter here and there).

Curiosity amongst readers was bound to find its way in online streams and threads. So, discussions and debates ensued between people sitting two continents and an ocean apart, many of whom having Harry Potter as the only thing common between them. A consensus, however, could never be reached. It was more of an open ending where the reader is allowed to make his interpretation.

Centaurs are mythological creatures and they have a notorious reputation for being serial rapists. Professor Dolores Umbridge was abducted by the centaurs of the Forbidden Forest and she was visibly disturbed and benumbed when she returned to school (after being rescued by Dumbledore).

Was she raped? Was she not?

Only one person in the world can put all such discussions and debates to rest. JK Rowling has already sent a few shock waves by making a disclosure of the homosexual profile of Albus Dumbledore and, more recently, of the appropriateness of a Harry-Hermione match (and the probable discord in Ron-Hermione relationship).

Will Rowling ever reveal this bit of information centering around Umbridge? Only time will tell.

Personally, I believe that she was raped. What’s your take on it?

  3. Well, there is a lot of discussion on this subject. The all-pink , racist , sadist Umbridge really tormented Harry and his friends. ( I literally fumed at her while reading :-D ) In HP series it has been preached that bad people are deserved to be punished.....but rape ? rape as a punishment sounds gross ..but that Centaurs do have such negative reputation , is also true...In fact this is a controversy discussion over which could let you anywhere...
