The title says it all.
Indeed, the world can be an evil place.
Like recently, did you hear about the case of the brutal gang rape that happened in Delhi, India on 16th December? I read about it in My Paper and it got me really fired up. I wanted to write about it, but it totally slipped my mind at that time.
The 23-year old girl, who is a medical student, was gang-raped in a moving bus in Delhi on Sunday evening by six persons including driver of the bus. She and her male friend were later beaten with iron rods and thrown out of the bus in a semi-naked condition. (Credits: HERE)
For 40 minutes, six men violated her body inside a bus in the most brutal way. It was savagery beyond words, but she resisted them in her senses, registering every sound, every name uttered. Their final outrage was to throw her out of the moving bus” naked on a December night with her very guts spilling out. For the six savages, that was the end of the ‘Munirka bus gang rape’, as the case has come to be called. They went their several ways, ate, drank, watched TV, washed blood off the bus floor as though it were the day’s soil, and reported for work as usual the next morning. (Credits: HERE)
And you know what?
She survived the odds.
However, her injuries were bad – her intestines had to be removed and she had to go through over 3 abdominal operations and suffered a heart attack from the day she was admitted into hospital in India on the 16th of December. Unfortunately, it seems that her condition is deteriorating.
As a result, Singapore’s Mount Elizabeth Hospital was selected for her to receive further treatment as it is renowned for it’s multi-organ transplant facility. She reached Singapore yesterday as seen in the My Paper headlines:
At the moment, she still remains in extremely critical condition and is now in the ICU.
Let’s hope that this brave girl pulls through to the VERY END!
Moving forward, as a result of this incident, protests have occurred throughout all of India and even till this date, 28th December 2012 as many expressed their anger and rage towards the 6 men who gang raped the girl.
Apparently gang rapes are a common everyday occurence in India. The Indian police recently revealed yesterday (27th December) that a 42 year old woman was found dumped on a road in south eastern delhi after she was gagged, sedated and then raped by three men.
These atrocities – gang rape or the rape culture SHOULD be condemned – as with the men who have commited them. Right now those that are caught are serving life sentences, but I don’t think that’s enough. There should be a more SERIOUS and SEVERE warning to the MEN..no, INHUMANE BEASTS out there to let them KNOW that RAPE or VIOLENCE towards women are to be CONDEMNED. Such heavy punishment includes CAPITAL PUNISHMENT or CASTRATION instead of just a jail sentence to deter the others.
Other than looking into a more harsh and severe punishment for rapists, they should also look into the Indian police’s handling of rape cases. Take a look this OTHER recent RAPE cases:
A 17-year-old Indian girl who was gang-raped committed suicide after police pressured her to drop the case and marry one of her attackers, police and a relative said on Thursday.
Amid the ongoing uproar over the gang-rape of a student on a bus in New Delhi earlier this month, the latest case has again shone the spotlight on the police’s handling of sex crimes.
The teenager was found dead on Wednesday night after swallowing poison.
Inspector General Paramjit Singh Gill said that the teenager had been “running from pillar to post to get her case registered” but officers failed to open a formal inquiry. “One of the officers tried to convince her to withdraw the case,” Gill, the police chief for the area, told AFP.
Before her death, there had been no arrests over her case although three people were detained on Thursday. The victim’s sister told Indian television that the teenager had been urged to either accept a cash settlement or marry one of her attackers. “The police started pressuring her to either reach a financial settlement with her attackers or marry one of them,” her sister told the NDTV network.
Meanwhile, the Press Trust of India reported that a police officer has been suspended for allegedly refusing to register a rape complaint in the northern state of Chhattisgar. The woman and her husband later brought the case to the attention of a more senior officer and a hunt has now been launched for her attacker, an auto rickshaw driver.
Official figures show that 228,650 of the total 256,329 violent crimes recorded last year in India were against women. The real figure is thought to be much higher as so many women are reluctant to report attacks to the police.

Like many others, I agree that this RAPE CULTURE in India has to be put to an end. We, women are not cattle, property or free frags for men to USE, DISCARD, or DO WHAT THEY LIKE.
*Not referring to ALL MEN of course*
Despite our differences, be it gender, race, color or whatever, we were all created equal in the first place.
This world belongs to women too
And we demand DUE JUSTICE for women as well.
Very sorry for ranting so much, but this topic really got me worked up. I would just like to end off with this picture which just sums up my thoughts at the moment.
Also, again let us hope that the brave young woman in hospital right now pulls through.
