Why am I not shocked to know that yet another rape took place in a state, city, a village, in India? Why are the rapists not afraid?
This is so sad. 24,923 rape cases is a number that should already be a slap on our faces as Indians. We always say, we are proud to be Indians, but do you think India is proud to have us? What are we proud about? That we allow these things to happen. Is there no fear of law? Is there no fear of god?
I’m not shocked. Because I know of people, educated and having a good lifestyle, still talk about aborting a girl child. This is the mentality that we still have. Girls = to expense, responsibility, problem, doesn’t carry forward family name, can’t take care of parents, can’t bring income to parents, gullible, weak and over all lesser than boys!
When we value girls less or value boys more in our minds, then what can we expect our children to do in their lives better? They too carry the same mentality with them and value the woman less than themselves.
And again we only judge the woman. We have this habit of comparing one woman to another. One is better than the other. One is feminism and the other is not. One is to be raped and the other is good so not. This is the mentality that we carry in our minds. And we are not saying that only men have this mentality, in fact women themselves carry this mentality and pass it on to their sons as well as daughters.
A larger number of rapes are unreported in India.
Because obviously the woman is to be blamed for the rape. You know the clothing, walking, make-up, friends of the woman must be such that the rape took place.
Recently I heard about an 8 month old baby girl raped by her uncle. Wow, she must have really invited that uncle to rape her, isn’t it?
You may say this is because of western culture becoming a good part of India. According to wikipedia, the meaning of Rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse or other forms of sexual penetration carried out against a person without that person’s consent. The act may be carried out by physical force, coercion, abuse of authority, or against a person who is incapable of giving valid consent, such as one who is unconscious, incapacitated, has an intellectual disability or is below the legal age of consent.
Is there anywhere written that rape is to be performed if the person who is the victim acts according to western culture. In fact most rapes in India are occurring within families, with their own children, with minors and with girls who have not even by anyway shown to the rapists that they are interested in them.
Then why all the senseless statements of no weight at all? Just to defend the rapist? Why do we want to defend the rapists? I’ve seen people (mothers) talk about aborting their girl child because they want a son and not a daughter. I mean if their mothers and their mothers did the same to them, they wouldn’t have even existed in the first place.
I plead everyone to think differently. And yes please get out of the mentality of carrying forward family names, bringing home incomes, money and all these non sense to create a happy life. A happy life is only created by you and not by depending on others. This way you are not on devaluing your daughters but also your sons, because you treat them as a product of yours to be in use in the future and not love them like God’s gift.
