There is an asylum where the mentally ill patients are tortured, including a form of waterboarding by dunking them repeatedly in water, which we see very up close.
Later, someone's tongue is cut off. We don't see the act but we see the leadup and hear screaming

A girl of 15/16 is forced to marry a much older man, there is a scene where he rapes her after marriage, and a lot of gossip from other characters about it
