Justice

In our country, Justice is too much to ask for. Murderers get bail, Corrupt officials rule this nation, Rapists are protected by the government, roaming scot-free on our streets, and Common man lives imprisoned in FEAR each day. The life of a common man is worth NOTHING AT ALL!

I am disgusted by the recent news updates :

  1. Asifa Gangrape and Murder case
  2. Unnao Rape Case
  3. Nisha Rape and Murder Case

And so many more that don’t reach the news, or even the police station. These horrendous crimes seem to be just getting worst and happening even more frequently.

 

THE LAW, THE GOVERNMENT, THE POLICE, everyone has failed our country. They can’t protect our women, They can’t even serve justice,all they can do is fill their bloody pockets with money and screw our country. Seems like we the people of the country must protect ourselves. No one needs to fear the law, because clearly there is NO BLOODY DAMN LAW, because if there was, then these monstrous demons would be dead by now.

 

Section 376 of the IPC states “Whoever, except in the cases provided for by sub-section (2), commits rape shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which shall not be less than seven years but which may be for life or for a term which may extend to ten years and shall also be liable to fine unless the women raped is his own wife and is not under twelve years of age, in which cases, he shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to two years or with fine or with both: Provided that the court may, for adequate and special reasons to be mentioned in the judgment, impose a sentence of imprisonment for a term of less than seven years.”

 

This is the punishment for rape in our country, mere 7 years of imprisonment for ruining a woman’s entire bloody life. That is the case if the criminal is convicted, many of these demons get away and aren’t even convicted. Rapes are taken so lightly by our country that absolutely no one fears the consequences of the crime. To top it off, the so called GUARDIANS OF OUR LAW are the ones protecting the ones who BROKE THE LAW.

This country NEEDS  a change, and its HIGH TIME we brought it about. I am ashamed that I live in a country where people have become accustomed to the RAPE CULTURE. Every time a woman is raped, the country is enraged and agitated, and just like a soda bottle, it all dies off within weeks and we get back to routine. I think we’ve had enough, we need to STOP NORMALIZING RAPE.

The LAW NEEDS TO CHANGE. If currency and taxation systems can change overnight, so can the LAW and PUNISHMENT FOR RAPE. Capital punishment, Public castration, stoned to death, neck chopped off, or whatever that puts the fear of god into these demons, so that they think a gazillion times before they ruin someones life to satisfy their lust.

I am no more willing to live in the constant fear of my safety. I am no more willing to attend candle marches and peace rallies and shed tears and feel helpless. I am willing to bring about a change to create a safer society, for us and for the future generations.

 

I demand that the Government bring a change in the Laws and make it safer, and if they cant do it, then it’s time to change the government and bring one who CAN CHANGE LAWS AND MAKE IT A SAFER PLACE FOR EACH ONE OF US. Let us all women come together and make it safe for our kind.

 

It’s time Justice is served and each criminal is punished, IRRESPECTIVE of his  RELIGION, CASTE, CREED, SEX, COLOR, MONEY, STATUS OR ANY DAMN THING.

I share your anger, disgust and hopelessness for I am a father of an 8 year old. But I still feel that the law is fair, it is the execution that has gone wrong. Values have gone wrong. Choices have gone wrong. Don't lose faith dear, if people like us lose faith, the it will take very little time for the society to be engulfed in a civil war. Remember Mr. Bachchan's dialogue in the movie Lakshya? It goes something like this "humme aur unme ye fark hai, aur ye fark rehna chahiye".
So if you believe in the goodness inside you, stand by those values and start by spreading them as much as you can. Probably that is the only thing an individual can do, making the right choice, holding on to better values, every single time. Trust me it is far better than candle marches and placards and other cringeworthy public displays of fake outrage.

Be the balance.
