School girl stops going to school over stalking, molestation; mother threatens suicide

A ninth standard school girl is compelled to drop out from school because of a goon who stalks her, molests her. Her widow mother who was heckled and threatened by the police instead of taking action against the has threatened to commit suicide along with her four daughters.

This also raises a big question on the tall convictions of ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padao’, made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Still today girls are compelled to leave education and stop going to school because of goons eve-teasing, molesting, stalking even rapes and gang-raped.

The recent incident has surfaced in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh where this school girl was compelled to stop going to school over regular harassment by her neighbour. Whenever she would go out of her home to buy vegetables, groceries or due to some other work, Ankit (the accused) who lives in her neighbourhood stalks her and molest her. When the mother of the girl went to police station to file complaint she was heckled and turned out by the cops.

Will Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and his government take action against these errant police personel who are supposed to take action against the accused but threaten the victim and her family instead. Shame on Uttar Pradesh police that makes big convictions but the real picture is scary. This also raises a big question if Yogi Adityanath government will react or remain silent. Will the buldozer of Yogi Adityanath raise the house of this man who has become a nightmare for this girl to the extent of stop going to school. Finally, where is Priyanka Gandhi Vadra who created a storm during the Assembly elections in the state with her campaign, ‘Beti Hoon Lad Sakti Hoon’?

Really have no words to express, all I have to say is “जिन्हें नाज़ है हिंद पर वह कहां हैं!”, the famous lines from Guru Dutt sahib’s iconic film, ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), seems to be so appropriate for such situations. This shameful incident also raises a big question on the people and society around- How long would people stay quiet and silent? Would they only react if such incident would happen to them? Fact, if people raise their voice togather then such incidents would not take place and girls, women would be safe and secured.

SHAME! 19-year old mother molested on cab, baby thrown out; dies

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.

Only Bobbitt’s Law for rapists will infuse fear-factor

Someone asked why I did not react on the recent seven-old rape and murder in Delhi. Honestly, there was a notion that such things would take a back seat especially after the protests that took place during ‘Nirbhaya’ gangrape.

However, I have an observation here and would like to share as I strongly feel just by calling the victim by different names to protect her identity cuts no ice unless and until she is protected or saved. Like in case of Jyoti Singh Pandey, the media called her by different names to market their stories, some called her, ‘Amanat’, ‘Damini’, ‘Delhi Brave Heart’, and ‘Nirbhaya’, the name that finally became the cult name. Rather than all these, the need of the hour is stringent punishment and it should be no less than Bobbitt’s Law. I have discussed, debated, argued umpteen times on this issue.

If carnal desire is so strong that it destroys innocent lives then chop the organ. I have been saying this in my live programes and editorials. I remained silent because nothing will change unless ‘stringent punishment’ is given. The ‘fear factor’ is missing which needs to be infused.

I covered the Delhi Brave Heart (Jyoti Singh Pandey) case and have seen the protests thaty simply went berserk especially the day then Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde had ordered a lathi charge on the media persons who had been reporting from India Gate. Honestly, it felt good to see the protest but really sad to see that anger or agression has died down. Nothing has changed, nothing would change… Rapes, gangrapes, molestations, eve-teasings, stalkings continues …

Alert! Somebody may be stalking

This is no fiction but personal experience, this evening. I am sharing a very serious issue. This concerns safety of women. There was this white Maruti van behind the shuttle trekker. There were four men including driver (Appeared to be delivery boy or mechanics. They were wearing black t-shirts which could be uniform).

I could clearly see them laughing, making filthy gestures and remarks among themselves by pointing to the girl co-passenger sitting at the end. Though the girl did not notice but these guys were deliberately slowing down at every traffic intersections. The issue is serious as (I hope and pray nothing happens) this girl may become a victim of stalking or may be these guys know her or reside in same area but whatever the entire thing is alarming.

Also I notice Kolkata which used to be helpful, passersby would have rushed on a sigle call has changed totally. Like other cities, people in Kolkata do not stop to extend a helping hand. So, I would suggest ladies, girls to be careful and stay alert, raise your eyes from the mobile screen and take a look around.

(just felt sharing, may be it sounds stupid still I shared with you all…)

Why Lakhimpur Kheri rapists should not face similar fate? Fear-factor required

Two Dalit teenage sisters were found hanging from a tree in a sugarcane field in Lalpur Majra Tamoli Purva village under the Nighasan police station on Wednesday evening. The incident sparked huge huge uproar across the region with locals coming on the streets and police had to cajole them to move back on the assurance that action would be taken.

On Thursday, the police arrested six men in this connection – Junaid, Sohail, Hafizur Rehman, Karimuddin, Arif and Chottu. The postmortem was conducted and the bodies of the two sisters were handed over to the family members. The police said, postmortem has confirmed strangulation after brutally gangrape the two girls.

“We have arrested Junaid, Sohail, Hafizur Rehman, Karimuddin, Arif and Chottu in an overnight operation,” said Superintendent of Police (SP), Lakhimpur Kheri, Sanjiv Suman. The SP informed that Junaid and Sohail were allegedly in a relationship with the two sisters, have confessed that they strangulated the girls after raping them”.

Speaking to the Press, the Additional Director General (ADG), Law & Order, Uttar Pradesh, Prashant Kumar said, “We have arrested six accused after conducting fast investigation as ordered. Such crimes should be dealt strictly and I request all to show sympathy towards the family. I feel the family members are satisfied with our probe as we have done everything as per their request. We have handed over the bodies to the family members after the postmortem”.

An FIR was registered under sections 302 (murder), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 452 (house-trespass after preparation for hurt, assault or wrongful restraint), 376 (rape) of the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, he said.

Murugha Math Sleaze: Chief pontiff Shivamurthy, warden Rashmi booked under POCSO

Why do they become religious leader if they cannot control their carnal desires which is predominately important to walk away from the worldly pleasures – In Indian tradition it is called – These five thieves are kaam (lust), krodh (wrath), lobh (greed), moh (attachment) and ahankar (ego or excessive pride). Why I am writing this? No, its not a sermon or religious discourse but trying to understand why suddenly Godmen at large in India have become sex hungry. These filthy predators have even ruined the lives of innocent disciples who stay as inmates in these ashrams. Well, ashram for name sake, lavish and palatial bungalows or farmhouses.

The recent controversy is about Karnataks’s Murugha Math’s chief pontiff Shivamurthy Murugha Sharanaru was arrested for alleged sexual abuse of high school girls. The pontiff was sent to judicial custody for 14-days. On Friday, a day after Shivamurthy Murugha Sharanaru’s arrest, his aide and Mutt warden, Rashmi was arrested in connection with a sexual assault case against chief pontiff Shivamurthy Murugha Sharanaru.

Rashmi is the same person who earlier filed a counter FIR against SK Basavarajan and his wife for illegal detention and kidnapping of the children. A case has been registered under Protection of Children Against Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act against junior pontiff Basavadithya, Paramashivaiah, and Gangadharaiah apart from Shivamurthy and Rashmi.

Shame! Incidents like Ankita still happens while ‘Amrit Dhara’ continue to flow

Ankita was a 16-year-old girl who dared to say no to a filthy goon who proposed to her, bugged her. This led to the death of this young girl. Well, this is the crux of the story. The incident has once again churned  number of questions –

1) What was the local administration doing when Ankita was being harassed?

2) Where does such goons get the courage from! If administration was strong then this would not have happened.

3) In Dumka, state hospital did not have the basic ointment or medicine, hence she was referred to Ranchi. Why? The stock at state hospital not updated? Or vested interests take home?

4) Who will pay for the death which predominantly happened due to non-availability of proper medicines at proper time?

Now, why should girls like Ankita have to die just because she did not want to accept a proposal of a filth? Irony, we talk of women empowerment, safety and security of women but the truth is incidents like Ankita. Nothing allien, it happens, happening 24×7 across remotest regions of India. Some gets reported, while rest stay under oblivion.

Is this what our freedom fighters had dreamt off? We recently observed 75th Independence Day and observed ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’… Indians felt proud to fly national tricolour under the programme ‘har ghar tiranga’ though to me it was mostly a FAD as people have forgotten to take down the flag which is also important. On August 15th from the ramparts of Red Fort, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced Amrit Dhara… I may be blunt, but do we really deserve to observe such Special days when we cannot protect the dignity of our women …

The question now will be raised about ‘upbringing’ and ‘grooming’ of the filth who killed the 16-year-old Ankita but it’s highly time criminals like these should given stringent most punishment, something that would infuse a terror or fear-factor in these goons. The accused should be flogged in open and handed over to the public. This may should awkward but time has come to take such actions as only then innocent girls like Ankita will be able to believe in ‘Amrit Dhara’ flowing in this country…
