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.

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…)
