The noose got tightened, for women.

The 16 year old Delhi "child" who raped and killed a girl is let loose. Because he is a juvenile and has a chance to reform himself.

Dr. Achal Bhagat says punishing rapists is not the solution. All criminals should be allowed a chance to reform and society should help in creating such opportunities.


I say kill them point blank. People who are capable of performing such heinous acts should not be allowed to live for a second. We are not at a point where we value such people's lives. We have a growing abundance of population, creeping into such uncontrollable numbers that a few dead criminals wont topple the world balance.

What do you make of the case where a young boy who raped a young girl brutally and then killed her, has been let go because he was not 18 yet? If he is not punished deservingly, what message are you giving to other under 18s? Why do you need this guy to transform and live a respectable life? What good is he to our society ? Even if he doesn't commit another rape, more out of fear of punishment, it is justice NOT delivered. If the girl were alive, how do you explain to her why the guy who tore her apart and threw her on the road is free now."Nirbhaya, he is just a kid. Give him a chance, will ya? You are anyway dead." 

Are you going to argue that karma will take care of him ? That God will punish him for his deeds ? That what goes around comes around? Then why are laws made? Why are there jails and courts and trials ?

Don't you want to send a strong message that such acts wont be tolerated ? Not by returning awards, but by actually punishing the offender. How about killing him ?Or better still, break his arms and legs as a reminder of what he did to a girl.As a horrifying example of what the fate would be of those who have no qualms tearing up a girl's intestine or pushing a rod through her vagina. How about treating criminals like criminals for a change?

I recently watched a Telugu movie, Kumari 21 F. The husband of the heroine chains his four friends in a secret place, feeds them Biryani once a week and then would beat them to pulp.Every week.
Because the four friends raped his wife.
I never saw a more fitting vengeance. Death is an easy punishment. Instead, let them live, and make them die everyday. I truly believe in "What you sow, so shall you reap". And helping Karma do its bit before it is too late.

Sorry for my violent thoughts, but my only concern is that the punishment being meted out is not proportional to the crime that has been committed. More emphasis is being laid on the hope of bettering the criminal than providing justice to the victim. The pain and anguish of the family of having lost their girl to some animals has no relevance in the books of justice.By releasing this criminal, the noose around a woman has only tightened.

There was an ad doing its rounds on facebook. It was trying to promote that the women in a family must share the uncomfortable situations they face on the roads with their sons, husbands and brothers. To create awareness in them on how it feels like to be treated like that.

It really is a good idea. But I just hope she is not held wrong for what happened to her. It somehow always is a woman's fault.
