“Misplaced moral values, insensitivity and total disregard for a feeble law can turn any man into a potential inhuman.”
This fact can be established in the wake of recent Guwahati molestation case, where a teenager was groped, violated, molested for more than 30 minutes in full public glare. It showed the world that the men committing this heinous act were neither deterred by the fact that they were in a public place, nor the fact that it was being recorded.
This is no way of treating a woman. There can be no justification for rape or sexual molestation cases. Girls don’t invite guys by their skimpy dressing sense or revealing more than usual, instead it’s all in the offenders’ mind, either in active or dormant state. This can be easily supported by numerous cases of molesting/raping a girl child and even the ones who don a burqa.The guys have no right to misbehave, any of those be the case. Let’s face that! The slightest show of flesh turns them into beasts.
This has certainly made a mockery of the society, culture and moral values. The most alarming fact after the Guwahati incident has been the sheer insensitivity with which the case was handled by authorities and the ones who stand for the rights of women in the country. “Be comfortable, but at the same time, be careful about how you dress”, “Aping the West blindly is eroding our culture and causing such crimes to happen.”, etc. were the words of some of them.
Author of Confessionally Yours Jhoomur Bose, wrote on Twitter, “The first time I was grabbed and groped, I was 14 and walking with my mother. Is it Western culture to walk with your mother?” Well, that’s something to think about.
Adding more to it, these ‘inhumans’ walk scot free, undeterred and unrepentant, for the fact that it’s extremely difficult to prove molestation charges in our nation. Thanks to the inactive Govt. and its even more inactive laws!
Not too long ago, what happened after the rubbish comment made by the Toronto policeman, is very well known in the whole world. Maybe it’s time for another dosage now. And, the laws should be made by the Govt. as if ‘apni maa-behen ke liye bana rahe ho’ 😡
