As I always say the lines from Guru Dutt’s song, “जिन्हें नाज़ है हिन्द पर वह कहाँ हैं ?” Molestations, eve-teasing, rapes, gang-rapes, stalking are rampant. It seems entire country have gone on an overdose of viagra that has increased the carnal desire of people to such an extent that they don’t hesitate to destroy the innocent lives. The sick people don’t even spare the married, mothers with children. Molesting and stalking the school girls or minors are very common. The recent incident has surfaced in Palghar, Maharashtra where a woman and mother of a ten-month old girl was molested on the running cab. When the women resisted the baby girl was thrown from a cab following which the baby died on the spot. This incident took place on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway.
The woman and her daughter were returning from Pelhar to Poshere in Wada tehsil in a cab which they shared with some other passengers, as told by the victim. The cab driver and some co-passengers allegedly molested her. The main accused Vijay Khuswaha has been nabbed and charges under Section 304, 354 of the Indian Penal Act (IPC) have been slapped that accumulates to culpable homicide not amounting to murder and molestation. The woman was admitted to hospital with serious injuries and is undergoing treatment.
It may not be out of context to refer to the infamous case of the Delhi Brave Heart (Jyoti Singh Pandey), which was called by numerous names – ‘Amanat’, ‘Damini’, ‘Delhi Berave Heart’, and the name that became cult, ‘Nirbhaya’. I am often asked why I am so sarcastic over the names, I always tell that to me protecting identity of a dead rape victim is a farce if she could not be protected while live. leave aside the dead, nothing has changed. such cases pour in. I would go a step ahead and ask for stringent most punishment like Bobbitt’s Law. I know I may be called a cynic, but if the carnal desires are so strong that these predators can’t control their urges then the only option is to chop of the organ when erect.
The punishment should be an example for the others who will not dare to even molest #women, till then nothing will happen and these innocent girls and women will fall prey to these beasts. I know am harsh but there is no other way to resolve this problem.
Finally, the so-called pseudo social activists who come on television and plead mercy and sympathy with minor rapists screaming at the top of their voices to establish that once these criminals undergo ‘#rehabilitation’ they will be good samaritans should be dealt very strongly. These things are really getting on nerves.
