Rape and the Ass of a Law!

We assume that if morally we are on the right side of law everything is fine in this world! But it is not so. I read an article in Times Crest (http://www.timescrest.com/society/virginity-and-rape-sentencing-9566) and I am horrified to say the least.

Yes I am talking about the rape in Delhi! We assume that with the fast track courts and so much publicity, by  March end all the required things will be done and the culprits will be sentenced to death. Please read the article in Timescrest before reading further.

Had the unfortunate girl NOT died you can imagine what would have happened. What does the law say! The current interpretation of Law is to be lenient to the Rapist if

  1. The Victim has had sexual relations in her life prior to rape or she is married ( then it is not a great offence to rape!)
  2. If the Victim is known to the culprit
  3. If the Victim gets married during the trial (Looks like marriage washes away the atrocity)
  4. If the culprit is a minor we all know what the law says

The system is so designed that it makes sure that the Victim is thoroughly disheartened, disgusted, scared and tired by the time she goes through medical exam after the event. Rape is considered to have “happened” only if certain physical activity has happened. If this cannot be proven the culprit can go scot-free!

This system is probably created by people who justify feticide, those who are “you can’t clap with one hand” theorists, and the MCP’s! Let me assure you that except MCP’s others are NOT necessarily men!

How do we change this? You can’t change this by death sentence, chemical castration and so on. This needs a very major change in thought process in our society, homes and in how we raise children. It can be changed giving respect to women. Allow freedom to women.

Do we really have a  right to say “Vande Mataram”?
