Rape and murder of Asifa Bano: ‘India’s justice system failed victims’

The brutal rape and murder of 8 year old Asifa Bano in Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir, warrants a response.

In India, a child is sexually abused every 15 minutes, according to The Indian National Crimes Record Bureau. The Indian penal code is inadequately prepared to tackle the rape crisis. The Judicial System is swamped, corrupt, biased
and unable to deliver lucid judgements.
.
The police force is unsympathetic to sexual victims. Victims suffer from harsh harrowing interrogation from male members of the force. Sadly women officers constitute only 6.5% of the police force out of a population of 1 billion people.

The rape crisis has unleashed widespread public support for strengthening legal provisions to punish sex offenders. This latest and brutal crime defies description. An act of savagery that is difficult to comprehend. With increased incidence and visibility of these violent crimes, the imposition of the death penalty will serve as the only deterrent to an escalating crisis of gender based violence.

The situation is exacerbated when women are treated as inferior beings and afforded 2nd class status. For years rape victims, including young children and elderly women, have endured an archaic and unfair criminal justice system which has utterly failed to deliver justice.

These sex fiends must be declared; “Hostis Humani Generis’, (Enemies Of Mankind).

These rabid individuals are in reality cold-hearted sex morons. Society bears guilt for condoning sex pests. The defilement of our women continues unabated and sadly goes unpunished.
The law must harshly punish the defiler. The brutal molestation of women defiles the very essence of personhood.

The Indian judicial system must mete out the severest sanction to offenders. In her crime ridden society, sentencing in brutal and heinous crimes, has been the biggest casualty. We are graphically witnessing a burgeoning defilement crisis.

Rape is an inhuman act of terror imposed on an innocent soul.

The rich and the powerful are immune from prosecution. Money and powerful connections buys everything. What we are witnessing today is a manifestation of this ugly truth.

We have beasts in our society who do not have values or morals about life.
We must conjure a unified solution for our epidemic sexual violence against our women.
