Saw this post on Facebook and despite all its good intentions, mindsets like these are equally responsible for perpetuation of crimes against women in our country. We put the entire burden of honour and tradition on women.
Like and share if u want the rapists to be hanged..!!
Well, does capital punishment change the psyche of this woman hating nation?
Photo: ‘( MUST MUST READ 😥 The bus driver ram singh ……. the girl was 23 a very good student …..
Very good student? How does her being a very good student increase the heinousness of the crime? If she was a bad student or had 20 boyfriends before, would that negate the severity of the crime?
After they got in , the guys hit …. in the posh areas of delhi and ncr. After raping her badly…… She was lying in the middle of the road hurt and nude. Not even single person helped her or covered her for an hour.
Again stressing on her nudity and the fact that no one covered her and protected her modesty is placing a high value on the woman’s value and honour. Honour lies in your actions and character not your sexuality and body.This reminded me of reading a news article when I was in primary school about how a woman barely escaped death from being eaten by a shark and the shark had torn her clothes before she was rescued nude. Immediately my classmate commented “Aise nangey besharam bachne se behtar tha ki, usse woh shark kha leta. Kitne police walo ne us aurat ko nanga dekh liya!” Translated from Hindi as It was better to have been eaten by the shark than being rescued naked shamelessly. How many police/rescue people had seen her naked! I was appalled needless to say at the kind of attitudes 10 year old girls have in our society and how even at that age the concept of shame and honour was already ingrained in our women.
When police came ….. she cannot live a married or normal life.
What changes dramatically with getting married that is not done in normal life? When someone is fighting for their life, you think she is going to be thinking about living or living a normal married life? Does married life mean having sex or giving birth to children? So like in all patriarchal societies, you are linking sex, a woman’s honour and marriage. Women are people too. They is much more to them than their sexuality and being baby producers. Why does every woman have to have children?
…That’s the whole story And that’s what delhi people are.
Seriously, stop turning this into a regional issue. Equally bad crimes happen in rest of India but most women do not have the guts to report it and in turn are humiliated instead into silence.
And her only fault was that she took a wrong bus..
She did not commit any fault including taking the wrong bus. It is the fault and failure of our society, our national psyche, equally weak and corrupt law enforcers and government, our inability to view women as humans capable of making their own decisions, our inability to make our country safe and civilized, our lack of respect and code of conduct with other beings, This is the fault of a nation and a civilization; not her fault.
