Today is just another day. I woke up, drank tea, petted my cat, and then drowned myself in reading and writing. In the evening I walked around in cold Delhi, protests against gang-rape were still going on. I could be happy if I did not know that a 6-year-old girl was raped in Pune today. Not only that, a 7-year-old girl and a 17-year-old girl were also raped in Bangalore. Rapists gave India, that was still mourning for the Delhi rape victim, new year’s gifts: two more rape incidents. And a girl suffered 90 per cent burn injuries after being set on fire by a man. The only crime the girl committed was she resisted street harassment.
While the nation was demanding for the safety and security of Indian women, men in India continued raping women. Here are some rapes that occurred in the last four days.
Dalit girl sexually assaulted even as protests rage pan-India over Delhi gang-rape.
These are just the tip of the iceberg.
Honey Singh, the Indian rapper was an unknown name to me until today. I sincerely hate one of his songs that glorifies rape and violence against women. To my surprise he is extremely popular and currently the highest paid singer in India. I feel disgusted when I read or listen to his rape song. It is about raping, hating and beating women. I am not going to agree with you if you say this song won’t encourage anyone to rape women.
A very sad day indeed.
