Hyderabad has become a blot on our sensibilities

Friday - December 6, 2019 11:24 am , Category : WTN SPECIAL

WTN- The outrageous incident in India’s cyber city Hyderabad last week has shocked and incensed the whole nation. A young girl, yet in her 20s, a veterinary doctor by profession, is raped and burnt alive in public, with all impunity and disregard for human values and the law of the land, while we still debate whether women should enter temples or not.

The most pressing concern of all right-minded people at this time should be to think how to stem the rot and root out the menace of rape from our country. This gory incident reminds us of the Nirbhaya rape incident some years back where a bunch of five drunk youths violated the young girl on a bus and threw her on the road to die in our national capital of shame, Delhi. The injuries later took her life at a Singapore hospital after two weeks of struggle to live.

Nothing has changed after that. There were historical protests on the streets of Delhi and elsewhere following the unprecedented incident and world media covered the events. Some major reforms were rolled out or were prepared to be implemented to tame such happenings. But the frequency and intensity of these incidents have only increased over all these years, the Hyderabad incident being a grim reminder of this reality. If a society moves more and more towards bestiality and savagery then the civilised people are bound to perish.

If our education, cultural traditions and religious bindings don’t make us humans, all our material progresses and intellectual evolution is a farce and we need to go back to the drawing board to scrutiny where did we go wrong to be having to live in such a retarded society that looks beyond redemption. If our lanes and streets, colonies and homes, schools and offices are infested with predators in the garb of humans, how can we have a safe human life? When a mastodon enters our space, or a demon comes to demolish our entities, what do we do? Do we wait for the police and the law to take its course? We simply look for any club or stick around and try to clobber it dead. How can there be any leeway or mercy for the beast of a person who has all the sense and temerity to decimate another human being finding her an easy prey to satiate his lust?

Such persons don’t just deserve condemnation and trial in law courts; they simply need to be exiled or exterminated because they are dangers to society and letting them out in society amounts to compromising with the safety of our sisters and daughters. Unless such exemplary punishment is meted out to the culprits, our society won’t change. We have had enough of talks on women’s liberation, lost childhood, spread of education and policing reforms— these are all talks which will take eons to materialise and show their effect on the ground.

What is urgently needed is the fear— the fear of being punished, that can only deter rapists from unleashing their animalism. That fear is somewhere missing, otherwise it won’t have been so easy to make a mockery of the law. As long as eight out of ten rapists on an average remain uncaught due to legal and policing loopholes, the fear can never be instilled in the wrongdoers and they will keep taking things lightly.

It is time for our leaders to engender a paradigm shift in approach towards this cancerous growth in society through the best and most stringent of legal and administrative provisions to put a clampdown on rapes. Our patience is wearing out and it is time for some real action beyond the customary debates and tears.- Window To News
