When the whole country is outraging against how AIB has shamed our “culture” and how it has hurt the “religion sentiments” of people, in a remote part of the same “cultured” country, a woman is getting brutally gang raped and murdered.
Her skull has been broken, sticks have been pumped in her vagina and condoms have been stuffed in it. Her body is decomposing and is serving as a feast for animals and rodents, and we are forwarding WhatsApp videos of Arjun Kapoor bad mouthing Raghu Ram. When the sister of the mentally challenged victim is running pillar to post to file missing complaint we are protesting to pull down AIB Videos from YouTube.
If you think, the rape case that I just described is gory, read the full story here. Stomach churning and vomit inducing. Even reading about it makes my skin crawl, what must have the victim suffered is beyond my wildest imaginations!
I am appalled at the amount of rape crimes we have been reading and dismissing like just another incident. I fail to understand, are we not taking any measures to curb these crimes? And if we are, why are they not working? Why is the number of instances on the rise? And why are the cases getting nastier and more traumatic by the day? Not even 2 months of the new year and we already have more than hundreds of rape cases to our yearly record. One of which is more trauma inducing than the infamous Delhi Gang Rape case.
What is it that is encouraging the rapists? Is it our laid back attitudes? Or our super-slow, as-good-as-a-show-piece judiciary system? Is it our ever friendly and heroic police department? Or our long speeches and social media marketer but no action government? I am at a loss of adjectives.
I do not even have a heart to say “Rest in Peace” to the victim!
