It took us three months to raise our voices against the barbaric crime in Kathua. It took us three months to know of the 8-year-old girl, to demand justice for her.
This act is further testimony to the rise of Hindutva over Hinduism. And the 8-year-old was made a puppet of communal hatred. Reports have stated that this rape was an attempt to scare the nomadic Bakarwal community.
The rally by right-wing Hindu Ekta Manch in support of the accused with the tricolour and “Jai Sri Ram” slogans, along with the Jammu Bar Association’s interference in the case has further delayed justice. The shielding of the culprits in the name of nationalism is nothing but intolerable.
There have been deliberate attempts at negligence by a group of slow-footed investigators to delay the entire process since Asifa’s abduction till her body was recovered.
She didn’t know what communalism is, she didn’t know that she was born in a country full of hypocrisy. Liberalism died years ago. Communalization and Politicization will burry even Her lifeless body. She didn’t know being a Muslim, if she would have ever entered a temple, might be She would be blamed of Her religion, she would not be allowed to enter a temple with her menstruating vagina but the disciples of the religion can force tear a vagina to bleed for a period of days in the temple! This is nothing but inhumane! Inhumane? What we exactly mean when we say “inhumane”? Brutality? Atrocity? Animal forbid! We are using their name in such extent. But animal don’t do such brutal(!) act.
Dear Prime Minister, you were into fasting for opposition’s intolerance, at least speak up of all these gender oppressions! “Beti Bachao” , “Betiyo ke Rapists” ko kyu?
If this incident still can’t make our humanity jolt, then never ever.
Maneka Gandhi said her Women and Child Development Ministry would move a cabinet note on Monday to amend POCSO, the Protection of Children Against Sexual Offences Act.
We demand a proper and unbiased justice for Asifa.
The most pathetic phase of this incident is the starved, gang-raped Asifa was shown mercy and her murder was delayed so that the one of the accused of seven, Deepak Khajuria, a police official, could allegedly rape her “for the last time”. And again Her head was smashed with stone to make sure she died. And everything in front of Ram!
