It’s been all over the news, the young 23 year old girl, Jyoti Singh Pandey, nicknamed: India’s Daughter died yesterday morning after being gang raped 2 weeks ago and atrociously injured and thrown out of a bus in New Delhi. Details about her name and family background have been withheld to protect her family. And we are here to say: Shame on humanity and the Indian Law!
Sarcastic slogan about Indian law against rapists
Men are stooping to an unprecedented abysmally low level. Some men are developing unimaginable beast’s instincts to do such atrocious and barbaric acts. The heart ails inaccessibly and tears have almost dried as people have cried so much.
The horror of 16th December 2012
Damini (fake name), 23 years old, nicknamed ‘India’s Daughter’, was a medical student. On 16th December 2012 she was returning home with her boyfriend after having watched the film ‘Life of pi’. On their way, they alighted a bus with tinted window panes wherein they lived the worst moment of their life where even the most dreadful nightmares pale into insignificance. Six drunken Indian beasts (men) attacked the two, took the girl to the back of the bus, gang raped her, sexually assaulted her with a rusted iron bar causing severe vaginal and intestines injuries to finally threw her out of the bus.
The drop that spilled the cup
Enough is enough! The extermination of baby girls in India is still a stigma that this rape has added fuel to the fire within people to go on the streets and protest massively around New Delhi. These manifestations have even caused the death of a police officer. Fearing more violent riots, access to various areas around the capital has been restricted, especially around the Gate of India.
India’s Political drama
The government of India transferred Damini to Singapore for specialists care. Many are severely condemning this act. “It’s just a senseless political decision. How can we transfer a person who is in such a critical condition? ”, says Samiran Nundy of the New Delhi’s Ganga Ram’s hospital.
The biggest democracy in the world has failed yet again
The shocking aspect of this case is that the bus roamed around New Delhi for almost 45 minutes and passed through various police check posts and still no policemen bothered to check inside the bus.
Fact: On average, a rape is reported every 18 hours in New Delhi!
How can the supposedly most secure place in India, the capital, fail to provide security for its people? A shame! The corruption in the country hitting a very high level, many cases are closed even before it goes to court. In one instance the victim has even been forced to marry one of its attackers.
The sad fate of ‘India’s Daughter’
Indians lie down on the ground mimicking dead bodies as they mourn the death of a gang rape victim in New Delhi.
Unfortunately Damini succumbed to her injuries and died on Saturday 29th December 2012 at the Mount Elizabeth hospital in Singapore despite being under the care of 8 specialists and her strong desire to live. She couldn’t survive the various organ failures due to her body injuries. This young girl was set to marry her boyfriend on February 2013. Sadly a dream is gone. While we have heard of this one, there are thousands of such cases yearly in India which goes unnoticed!
Six persons have been arrested by the police. The only action announced to combat rape is the publication of the photos, names and addresses of the rapists on web sites to publicly shame them. Is it enough? Should more severe laws not be enforced? What is the worst case scenario? Hang to death? Seriously? That’s like offering an easy ticket out of the game which is already over.
How many of us here think and agree that public mutilation is the least sentence that these 6 persons deserve? I am for it!
Mahatma Gandhi once said, “The day a woman can walk freely on the roads at night, that day we can say that India has achieved independence”. When country men don’t protect their women, that country will never come up. The term Super Power is not in military strength… it is about how we treat, respect each other.
Damini, rest in peace but you will always remain in our hearts.
