There. It happened again. No matter how hard we try to avoid it, such news always pops up in front of us. Yet again, the nation hangs its head down. The capital city, yet again, set the stage for another brutal episode of the rape of two young girls. Is it ever going to stop? That is something worth pondering, or isn’t it?
1. What Is Happening to Delhi?
The answer to that has to be given by someone, someday. Rape is not a crime that is only happening in Delhi. It happens everywhere. Psychotic and perverted men continue raping girls, women, and even senior women without remorse or sympathy. But, the statistics in Delhi are climbing new steps. The nation has not forgotten “Nirbhaya,” the brave girl who fell prey to some heinous and horrible pigs.
December 16 is a date that doesn’t fade away from the minds of all the women in the country. They must condemn the crude mentality of some men. The capital city is now waking up to more such news. The latest that appeared in newspapers is the fate of two young children. It could be said that one of the critical reasons for this kind of atrocity is our law.
2. The Law
The law hides behind the bitter truth. It is a fact that most rapists spend a significantly low period in jail. They will be out of it in no time. A rapist is entirely different from a murderer. One may have murdered on the spur of the moment. But a rapist is not pressured by any situation.
He does it because he is an arrogant, stupid man with a perverted mind. Stringent laws have to be established to ensure that rapists can never terrorize a girl.
3. Capital Punishment
I feel capital punishment has to be imparted into our law system, especially to those who cannot show any respect that women deserve. Castration is an even better option for those social wastes. I find it extremely difficult not to laugh at the present situation of our nation.
There are people out there raising hues and cries about the death of cows, but none to share the pain and embarrassment that was meted out to those little girls who the rapists abused. I have to apologize to the religious fanatics because I cannot comprehend whether a human being or an animal is the crucial catalyst in the well-being of our society.
4. Rape News Everywhere
Rape here, rape there, she’s being raped, they are being raped. Is this where we are headed towards? Towards a nation that is going to be known for rape? RAPE? Really?
Hurting girls comes from the belief that women are always beneath men. These chauvinist ideals make them think that the apt way to hamper women’s empowerment is by stealing their integrity and dignity. Nevertheless, the fools are mistaken because women have repeatedly proved that they can rise from the ashes, just like Sunita Krishnan.
Situations have changed. Men no longer hurt women to suppress their voices of women. They hurt little children. They do this only to satiate their thirst for sex and nothing else. They do this because they are beasts who don’t even deserve to exist.
5. Is India Safe Anymore?
India has become a place where no one born as a woman is safe. No matter how much money and time we spend spreading awareness about this, the situation has remained static. Are we a nation with men who are such perverts and sexually voracious? Why are these men made to think that they have the right or the authority to mess with the integrity of women?
Psychological reasons might be our answer. It’s time for us to realize that rape IS no joke.
Awareness programs for girls about saving themselves from danger from men will not be of much use if the problem is with men. Start with the boys. Start with the young. Still, if they grow up to be rapists, do we need them? A regular follower of news cannot just sigh and propose that the law take its course.
