Trigger Warning: Mention of rape
We don’t understand, I could never understand. How can we consider or mention politics in case of a rape? Don’t people know about rape, harassment or molestation? These are acts done by shameless human creatures who lead people to think that their brothers, best friends or father could be one of them. The recent Hathras rape case is a call to help us realise the importance of sex education and traditional upbringing.
It is so easy to put the blame on politicians, society or even the size of clothes that a girl, woman or an infant is wearing. Why? Why doesn’t anyone can check their characters? Why are they taking actions like these? Inhumanity is obnoxious and we can’t curse a girl.
This time, it’s the need of an hour for families to provide literacy to their girls as they grow up. Girl education must be free so that they can raise their children with etiquettes. Women don’t get the place they deserve in society. This is high time for women empowerment. Every woman should join the revolution; every woman needs to be respected. We are not allowed to roam freely. Cab drivers, brothers, uncles, friends, relatives and fellow humans — we can’t look up to these people to save us. We need to take stand for ourselves.
Look into your heart, can you feel the agony if something like this had happened to your daughter, sister or mother? They did not stop even after raping her and went ahead to murder her. How dare they do this to her? Why has inhumanity been lost?
Do you really wonder if candle marches will do the work? Our country registered 90 rapes per day in 2017, i.e. 32,850 in a year; and these are the numbers that don’t even include unregistered cases. By not registering a rape case, we allow the rapist to meander around to rape again.
We need to understand the situation to stop this inhumane act. No government, society, girl or woman can be blamed for this. This is the fault of cheap mentality of society and of the rapist’s. We need to understand the difference between, “He raped her” and “She’s been raped” as he raped her, and she could never provoke anyone to rape her, not even her husband.
