In the past three days I get to read about 3 rape cases of minors in Bangalore. Out of them one involves the allegation on a French consulate worker for raping his 4 yr old daughter.
So are we still holding women and their attire responsible for rape? Is the seven year old who was raped and thrown into the lake responsible for the crime that was inflicted on her?
In another glaring incident of honor killing, a man beheads his daughter after he suspects her of having affairs with several men. Then are some communities in Jaisalmer trying to make the death of their daughters look natural by denying them food and medical treatment.
Three days, yes in three days I get to read about such ghastly incidents. And I couldn’t help but wonder if our Indian society is only filled with filth. Female infanticide, honor killing, dowry death – we are a country where reside murderers. We either kill or watch others getting killed, lacking even the minimum qualities to be considered as human.
And no why should we raise our voice? Why should we fight against the irrational norms of the society? After all we got our pathetic lives with ‘Blackberry suits’ and ‘Facebook likes’ to take care of.
