Posts Tagged ‘Rape’

It was funny reading today’s news , I read it online as the Tv channels which are supposedly very good are utter nonsense and hardly give any news. They are more into how to throw those big words at people about some incident and make it a habit to repeat it every 20-30 minutes .. the whole day long.  I could not believe what I saw the other day , during the india-Sri Lanka match which ended in a tie, during one of the overs only 5 balls were bowled.  Since the match ended in a tie that one extra ball “COULD” have been a match winner, but its a game things happen.  Had India Lost , Or won no one would have mentioned this over, but because it was a tie..  This Tv channel hurriedly put up a chat show with three or Two other supposedly cricket knowing people and Went on and on and on and onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn (I guess you get the hint) about how the umpires made a blunder and How india “COULD” have won how india was ROBBED of the win ..

I watched the show as I had nothing to do and it was more of a comedy show, I have never laughed in my life as much as I laughed at that show, what a waste of time .. there were three people talking of one incident. Each one said the SAME thing on every question.. More hilarious was each of them says “OH nothing can be done about it “, the match is over. I mean if the match is over then why spend so much time on this particular incident… wasting so much time .. when there are aplenty more reasons where debates , discussions need to be held.

Is their such a need to create such a hoo la-la, a Big issue on such incidents.  I mean let’s think of it logically (yupp I can surprise you all sometimes, talking of logic, yes you read it right.. Read on)

Had the one ball been bowled

The batsmen could have taken a Run- hit a four – hit a six and if the match went on as it did India could have won , But on the other hand the Bowler Might have taken a wicket too, the batsman might have tried to hit a six and holed out to the fielder in the deep losing his wicket,  It could have been such a good ball that the batsman had to defend it rather than take any run.. SO MANY permutation and combinations , the result could have been entirely different had any of this happened.  Yet NONE of the esteemed people sitting on the discussion table said anything about it .. OH NO India was robbed of the victory.. Thank god they did not come out with saying the umpires are BIASED against the Indian team.  or maybe they did I was so busy laughing my head off I did not listen to that part.

This is the reason why I get so angry sometimes reading other news somewhere which never ever gets mentioned, No one in the nation gives a DAMN about it,  Let me give you an example..

I have been following news about a DGP (director general Police) Jails, Mr. Shashi Kant, he is up in arms against the Drug mafia operating in Punjab jails, the drug mafia he says is backed  by some powerful people, The DGP is wanting to eradicate this menace, I don’t know what agenda he has in doing that But lets consider it he is doing so for the betterment of the society and sincerely eradicating the drug mafia,  He has been very outspoken in media talking about the connections between the drug lords and political leaders, which has ruffled quiet a lot of feathers in the political circle.. So what does the Government do I will quote THE TRIBUNE’s News

“The state government has withdrawn all three official vehicles assigned to him leaving him without any official vehicle for himself or his security officials.”

He has been criticised by the state government for airing his views openly, Instead of helping him the Govt is trying to stop him..

On the other hand there is another Top Cop, The SSP of Chandigarh who had a  community interaction in Punjab University Chandigarh to speak about efficient policing, In his interaction he had NO EXAMPLE to give about it in Real life so what he did was take examples of Films the REEL life how Amitabh bachan  does policing in “ZANJEER” or how Ajay Devgan works inside system to bring about reformation in the movie “SINGHAM”..  It is very funny that the SSP could not find any such heroism or bravado or working with full commitment while on duty for what they are being paid for in the Police force..

Such is the sad sad condition of our  police functioning , One side there is a person who MAY GENUINELY be trying to help get rid of a menace he is being stopped on the other examples are being given to work as our REEL hero’s work how is it possible to do that, I wonder.

One of the worst news That I read was two criminals who had kidnapped a child and held the 2-year-old for a ransom, ( luckily the police recovered the child within 6-7 hours which is commendable of them and WELL DONE TO THE TEAM of the officers who made it possible, Yes our police too can work miracles but only when they want to ...) Anyway that is not the reason I am talking about the Court has given a sentence of LIFE TERM to these kidnappers .. THIS I want to challenge because if you remember my post on justice for a 10 month old, the judge was reducing the sentence , from 10 to 7 or something like that years .

CAN YOU SEE THE DIFFERENCE how can this be justified in our own justice or law that a kidnapper gets a life term while a rapist who has done this deed on a 10 month old is allowed to have a reduced term..

So here I think the law is telling us NO dont kidnap kids but its ok to rape them  and leave then scared for Life.   Please all who are reading me tell me AM I an IDIOT to think that way or that I am complete mad.

 

ANYWAY on some good news India has qualified for the olympics in hockey, defeating france 8-1 , CHAKK TE FATTE .. and this my dear people could be something te celebrate after all HOCKEY is our national game ( i hope there are people out there who know that hockey is our national game) .. only if we spend half that much money as spent on cricket, It is indeed such stupidity and hypocracy of our people who don’t even know what the national game is since cricket has taken over us all . I am happy today to have read this news, And I will be here watching the matches played God willing India will put a better show then the multi million dollars rich Cricketers who are untouchables .. .. Well done to the indian team..

I have been  reading a few posts the last few days, so much wrong is happening in this world. On my post about the 10 month old baby being sodomised, I got a comment from  Kiran  asking ” Isn’t this the same planet where our ancestors lived with, less sickening morale & societal issues?”  to which my I nodded profusely.  It is so sad that we are just not developing as Human’s , rather it is a like Running Downhill, and we will not leave any  stone unturned to show how cruel we have become.

And it’s not just in India this happens its becoming quiet common everywhere else too, Recently there is a case here in UK where a couple Ilyas Ashar and his wife Tallat Ashar from Eccles, Greater Manchester trafficked a deaf girl of the age of 10 into Britain and kept her as a slave for nearly a decade.  During her ordeal living as a servant and slave, she was repeatedly raped as well as beaten and locked in the basement every night.  The basement served has her sleeping place, with no bed just a concrete floor.  Without access to either water or a toilet in the basement, she suffered mentally as well as physically, despite having disability she received no sympathy from her ‘owners’  (I am quoting my friend The British asian blog ).

As you read the article it makes you angry, frustrated, helpless thinking what the hell, how can one human do this to another human.. About 4 weeks ago I had a similar situation, I can’t discuss much on that case, a girl had been smuggled from an eastern european country for prostitution, The look on her face , the way she looked at us questioning eyes, as if asking “WHY ME”,  she did not know much english so it was becoming difficult to understand what she was saying. She would not accept to talk to an interpreter too , she was so afraid.  No documentation , No money, No ID on her, It is moments like this that I feel helpless and then the animal instinct wakes up to pick up a weapon and shoot those who did this to her. (Please don’t ask any questions as I will not be able to reply to any of them ) .. Sorry

Another post by Ria, who I read regularly  tells the same story about how a girl was betrayed by her so-called boy friend, who spiked her drink , taking her to a friend’s place where the girl was raped by friends. Such incidence of drink being spiked are getting very common these days, I wonder who are these people who spike the drinks with the motive of raping a person, If sex is the only reason then there are a lot of places that one can buy sex, whats wrong in that .. rather than spoil someones life , buying sex seems to be fair in comparison to such act of mindless ruthless madness.

The reason why I sat down writing this post is to have a think where is our society going, what are we doing to rectify it , It is becoming more and more complicated to try to imagine the reasons of why is this, PLEASE lets not bring this all man-woman thing into it , I am sure a lot of people are raring to write its all MEN fault.  I am sure there are a lot of reasons that need to be addressed. I know a man is responsible and he is at fault but then what about the same crime done by women.

I say so because a friend of mine was in relation with this girl,  it went on for four years , with all those promises of living life together, making plans , parents agreed to their marriage, suddenly one fine day she wants out and that too when the time they had decided to wait was about to finish in a month of so , when the time had come to tie the knot, Yes the girl might have had her reasons to do so, Yes she has the right to break a relation as and when she wants to, YES to everything anyone is going to ask. BUT did it not matter to her at all..

They had spent 4 years of life together through ups and downs, been sleeping together .. Now don’t you think this is RAPE too ?   Although it was consensual but it was an act performed with all the promises which in the end was a betrayal, a TRUST broken.   I have given this example because as I mentioned it’s not always a MAN who does this to a woman , women too do such acts. If  in this story it was the guy who had said his good-bye and moved on to another girl a lot would have said all men are like that.. Hence me using the word mankind, humans..

How does anyone expect this man to trust anyone anymore.

I have been thinking (which is a laugh I know), where is mankind going to, Trust is one thing that is being questioned all the time , I mean after hearing the above incidents I would not trust anyone, The girl trusted her boyfriend look what he did to her, My friend trusted the girl look what happened,  Trusting a friend who would bring her to UK  for a better life made a girl a prostitute. Trusting an elderly couple made a kid live like a slave and go through such horrific times at a tender age of 10.

Why have we become so trustless ?

Why are we not happy or satisfied with what we have?

Why do we always keep looking for something else ?

Why can’t we keep our LUST in control ?

Why has our HEART BECOME BLACK ?

This reminded me of some beautiful words written by another blogger friend   Sh@s.. I am quoting the line .. I hope you don’t mind, (if you do let me know I will remove it, sorry)

जीने की लत थी हमे
शुक्रिया आपका,
उसे तोड़ने के लिए
I was addicted to life.
Thanks to you,
For de-addicting me.
I don’t know why I am writing this post or what I am trying to say .. I guess its one of those thoughtless posts which I write to waste the time of all the readers who read .. So I am sorry for that.

It’s the lack of sleep I think playing tricks on my mind.

PS:- sorry I have not replied to all you lovely people in the last article Will come to it soon .. just rushed off my feet at the moment. THANK you all for the lovely views on DAAN. 🙂

Bombay high court reduces punishment for a  man who sodomised a 10 month old girl because the man lost control over himself because he was living away from his family.

“Trial judge was aware of the fact that the appellant (Harijan) was married and (had) two children and his family was staying in Uttar Pradesh… No doubt, this by itself may not be a reason for lenient sentence. However, had it been considered in the proper perspective, the learned trial court probably would have imposed lesser sentence than 10 years,” Justice M L Tahaliyani wrote in his judgment recently.  

IHM Has blogged about it  and Shilpa Sharma too

PT has created an online signature campaign to protest against the reduced sentence of Ramkishan Harijan who sodomised a ten months old baby girl.  His sentence was reduced by Bombay High Court because his lawyer argued that the rapist was poor,  a father of two, living alone, away from his native place and therefore probably he lost control over himself.

If you think this rapist doesn’t deserve a reduced sentence, please do sign this petition – to sign click here.

In the petition a lot of questions have been asked But apart from all those question I have to add one of my own which I don’t see anyone asking .. THIS LAWYER how can he argue, He knows what has happened .. I can understand the data protection and all that CRAP and PALLAVA over lawyer-client Confidentiality etc etc. But still If I am not wrong as the news says the LAWYER ARGUED with the court..  My questions are

1. Does this lawyer not have babies in his house

2. Does this lawyer not have Females in his house

3. Is he so blind to make money that he doesn’t give two hoots about who or what he is representing

Is this not the norm we as human beings follow ignoring the reality.

This sick individual who had LOST CONTROL was a neighbour, he actually took the baby from the house to a deserted place where he committed the crime. What sort of world are we living in where we can’t even trust our neighbours.

I would like the contact details of that lawyer too who helped this person, The lawyer indeed is a genius .. Maybe he can help get the INNOCENT PEOPLE some sentences since he is clever enough getting the Culprit off the hook.

How the hell does he sleep at night.. outrageous… Along with this petition there should be one more that should call upon people to boycott such lawyers who will do anything for lure of money. Is this the justice he vowed to uphold…

Doing this to a small baby who could not protect herself.. This guy should be hanged The only reducing of sentence that I think would be valid is that  instead of the electric chair it should be via hanging

WELL done to the lawyer Kudos to him..

So much also to the judges who are supposedly very learned and know the law.. did they not feel or SEE what had happened , what are they trying to show the world that it is ok to Rape a 10-MONTH-old, spend some time in jail, Come out and do it all over again.

The defense lawyer wanted the court to be lenient on the man because he was away from his family and “simply lost control”. If you do not agree with this, please sign this petition.

What is family is it only wife and kids or does it involve others too like parents and siblings .. BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN LIVING AWAY FROM FAMILY FOR more than a DECADE now .. SO

Does that mean that tomorrow I can go and kill someone or do something else very nasty because I LOST CONTROL, we human beings have all lost control sometime in our life are we all entitled to do something this heinous, going by the LAWYERS argument and THE COURTS acceptance of the same IT is a valid reason.

I said KILL because in my eyes killing is a lesser evil then RAPING A 10-MONTH-old kid who did not even understand what was going on with her, who could not even protect herself. Does anyone think like me or am i the only idiot thinking this way.

I have been doing rounds of the court for some personal matter , EUREKA maybe I should LOSE CONTROL and hopefully then the situation will get resolved .. PATHETIC.

BlogJunta - An ode to the Blogosphere

Over the last few weeks and months I have read a lot on the topic, it has ranged from people saying Men are the worst thing ever , how women will be happy without men . Men calling how women behave etc etc etc.. I have gone and put my views on a few of the blogs where the articles have written the replies to some have been funny and made me smile.

So let’s be frank and throw away all the hesitations we have, Slut walk is/was organised by people to let other people know that it’s not the women who invite men to rape them by the way they dress up ,  That is what I think is the MAIN point although there are a billion branches to it which my small mind cant cope with.

I am writing this post to put my views on all this Walks , holding discussions , meetings etc as far as I am concerned Dont help there are reasons behind that, Has a walk or a demonstration ever helped anyone and I mean that in context to OUR country INDIA, not referring to any other nation because I don’t believe taking examples of other nation will help us , things don’t work the same in our nation.

My question is to all the people (male-female and any other category which is human included) .. the reason I put that in brackets is I am sure someone out there reading this will say I am talking only of females , yeah I get that a lot so to be POLITICALLY CORRECT I put all..  right the question is will this walk really help.. or has it helped ..

Again please hold your horses and take your fingers off that trigger .. and listen to what I have to say

I am not undermining anything, I totally support all kinds of walk , dharna’s , agitations etc .. BUT my question is to all those who are quiet vocal,

what will they do if they found out that the person who eve teased or raped or molested is from their own house.. will they still want that male to be castrated …

All these crimes are done by a Male (again please I mean MAJORITY) though females too do it but lets assume here its a male who is the culprit .. Dont you think we should be teaching  the MEN the male in our own house , in our own room for things to make a difference, I strongly believe that Once that happens then the things will change.

I feel that the BASIC MENTALITY of a  MALE needs to be changed..  After all the rapist or the man who is eve teasing , or even thinking of it .. IS from our society and maybe from our own home ..

1. How many people will be there in the march, Pardon me for being a idiot but as far as i understand a Indian mindset many of them in the march will be going back to there own home shutting the door and then BITCH about it, Tell me if i am wrong in that …

2. How many of the people actually in the march will go home and to there Husband-Son-Father and point out to them that the way they look at a girl is not good.

3. How many MEN who are supporting this march will on a friday night get drunk or have a few drinks and then do the same thing against which they are standing up now. by this i dont mean they will go and Rape or molest someone I mean talking amogst their own friends .. Oh how sexy that girl is , look at her legs , this and that…

4. A baby boy grows , starts school , comes back home after a few days Mommy is probably the first one to ask “KOI GF banai”..  A girl is taught and instructed about social conduct, given guidelines about how to dress and behave in public in general. But a boy is seldom/never taught about these things at home esp with regard to conduct towards girls. He learns from his peers, from the media which shape up his misguided notions which slowly get entrenched. Something needs to be done in this direction too.  (copied this from Ajay’s comment..)

I am copying “It is cool to address women as chick, babe, figure, item..It is cool if you are known for your ‘long legs’…It is cool to ignore certain men who ‘compliment your gorgeous shirt/top’ with all the wrong intentions..it is cool to get a million likes when you wantedly put up a pic of you lounging by the beach ( yes, I know some ex-classmates who will do anything for attention. They are still insecure like hell. The funny part is they are showered with attention only when they put up such pics. I am in no way supporting ‘it is women who provoke men’ policy but I am convinced it is because of low self-esteem and insecurity that is making them stoop so low. I have also come across men who have asked them to think again.)”

I totally agree with the above ..

5. I also beleive that  If a woman is dressed a certain way, it does NOT mean that she’s looking for sex!.. But then I would not want a female who I know walking on the road half naked,  as a prostitue would walk.. Again YES I know how they dress and walk.  I know many out there probably wriggling there fingers to put in a comment How do i know, or how can i see.. Well my answer is Look at the one you care for and love , thats how they NOT DRESS.. hope you got a reply

I was brought up by parents who taught me how to treat a woman, I was always told that I should watch how i behave outside since I have sisters and I would not like them teased or hassled. DO you teach your son-husband-father this … Did you protest when a male in your family said something derogatory about a female in front of you.

Do have a think and let me know….
