Please do watch this video of the police taking action to stop a mob of 25 from molesting a young woman in Gurgaon on the New Year’s Eve. Is there any other way this crime could have been stopped? (Thanks for sharing the video Nish)
What do you think made these rapists so unafraid of the police or the public? Isn’t it true that connecting dangerous crimes with a woman’s aabroo (honor, modesty) makes it easier for criminals to escape?
Do you think these men even realised they were committing a crime? If yes why, if no, why not?
Do you think ignorant statements like Andhra Police Chief Reddy‘s (and others‘ in positions of
authority responsibility) make rapists feel safer. (Victims afraid to report, police happy, rapists safe).
In the past similar crimes were committed in Mumbai on New Year’s Eve, and Holi was the same in many parts of North India, before throwing balloons and forcing colour on strangers was banned and firmly monitored by the administration.
