Rape Carnival : and still we are silent…

ImageA couple of years before, I wrote a blog on a rape case happened in Delhi and then in West Bengal. I felt very bad while writing the blog as it was clearly indicating our path of where we are actually leading. In last couple of months, atleast a dozen of girls were raped in Uttar Pradesh according to police reports and don’t know how much were suppressed under the political influence or just because of social pressure imposed on the victim and her family. In India everything happens in multidimensional way, like even if a baby cries for no actual reason at all, still it can grab a lot public attention, media hype and then political criticism.Image

Almost two centuries, we were under the British Government, they left in the year 1947 and we declared freedom, independence keeping some old practice green forever like when British were in India, they were served with village girls, city girls and sometime girls from Royal Family to satisfy their lust for sex and when they left, some influential person took the charge of it. Politically influential, socially influential, economically influential people started having their daily dosage of sex supplied by their own area of influence. It’s a simple job to do, either bring money to satisfy or get laid and people can’t have any sayings. When Bangladesh fought for their independence, a huge numbers of male population were shot and females were raped. Hindus were raped by Muslims and to take the revenge, Muslims were raped in India. The same thing happened in 1947 also, people fought for their legal rights, democratic rights, and regional rights and sometime for religious cause but kept one thing very common, i.e. whenever they got opportunity, they didn’t leave any women go out of their way keeping their head high but tried to satisfy their lust, show power and raped women.

In the year 1980, when Late Indira Gandhi was our Prime Minister, then one political upheaval stormed our country, i.e. the active participation of second level politicians. Who was known as the security guard or just local goonda among people, thought of tasting the sweet curry of politics by wearing the most deserving Khadi. The game changed from then. Those who were tamed by some cultured, educated people suddenly came in front to enjoy the same whatever they have provided to their political ancestors. For anyone who targets power, make target two community, one those who are actually left out from the mainstream society and then the woman. Draupadi got laid with her five husbands being the great Sati according to Hindu Mythology, then why not all other women in India. Indian father thinks it is more important for their daughter to learn household things than going to school, priorities the knowledge of making home and satisfy husband in every way than getting proper education, we still don’t let our women worship god while having menstruation, there what’s wrong in utilizing them for our own lust. We forcefully kept them in darkness and then what’s wrong in seeing our daughters in darkness, getting forcefully laid by some influential people! What’s wrong in asking for some favor in exchange of a female body? No, we are more interested in feeling sad and then cry after seeing our daughters getting raped. We lodge complain and sometime witness a public outrage, after few days blame it on our fate and let some politicians make stupid dirty comments on the psychology of rape.

Why do people rape, can be subject for those research scholars, hopefully they will find some points on taking the measures of stopping it too.Image

How many of us know the different kinds of rape? Formally there are 10 different types of rape.

  1. Date Rape
  2. Marital Rape
  3. Statutory Rape
  4. Male Rape
  5. Prison Rape
  6. War Rape
  7. Gang Rape
  8. Campus Rape
  9. Corrective Rape
  10. Rape by deception

And unfortunately we Indians are witnessing all the kinds, sometime even one type accompanying other. We have strong legal proceedings for it but we don’t have awareness. Rape is not only having sex with a lady or with some ladies against their will or sometime with her consent by giving some lucrative promises like getting married, giving material gain etc., but it’s a kind of killing a woman’s womanhood by taming her rights to live her own life., it must be considered as killing too. It should not be treated as an imprisonable offence.Image

Rape is the easiest way of satisfying lust along with showcase of power, superiority by sowing the seeds of fear and dominance.

It’s really surprising to see that except involving local administration, Government also washes their hands by just giving one or two mere media statement and let the Rapist roam freely and happily so that they can help during the politicians voting campaign. Like all other crimes, in rape cases too, the moment it will be treated as Crime only without keeping in mind any other issues, then only it will be properly removed from our society.

In recent couple of years study, Uttar Pradesh, a province in India topped in all kind of crimes, violence but still government washed their hands by giving some media statement and issuing some reporting officers. J&K, being the most sensitive state of India, witnessed a sharp rise in the rape incidences in recent days. West Bengal, where earning bread gets more importance than anything else ranked 3 in all India statistics.

According to studies, in India in every 22 minutes, a Woman gets raped and in every 113 minutes a lady gets killed by the rapists, still we remain silent and wait for the prosecutors to wake up and do something revolutionary. In actual, in every 13 minutes, a rape incident occurs in India, that means only merely 30% cases are registered in police station and are available for statistical guys.Image

As per National Crime Records Bureau of India, total 24,923 rape cases were reported in the year 2012, out of which only a mere 14,717 cases were solved and Indian Court also completed the trial process by sentencing 13,294 persons.

Rape was used as a war weapon to drive out hundreds of thousands of Pandits from Jammu & Kashmir. Rape was a political cheer when it was done on thousands of Dalits in Uttarpradesh in the year 2007; rape is done on the base of Family Honor and Sexual purity in West Bengal, Uttarpradesh and Madhyapradesh. Rape is done in every way possible. Even in India, Theft Case, Burglary cases have been overshadowed by the cases of Rape though as I wrote above, only 30% of the cases are registered, seems like it’s a Rape Carnival,Image cannibalism celebrations are being celebrated by all, and we shameless people, write blog, shout on Fifa world cup and live happy letting our girls, daughters, ladies friends being molested, man-handled and raped every day, every second and if chance is given, don’t let any opportunity go to do the same personally too.
