Teacher arrested for raping six year student.

How did a horrific crime like this go unreported for days? What was the first reaction of the school? Did they attempt to deny any responsibility? There is so much to say… I am too outraged to say anything, but would like to extend full support to the parents and to the little girl. Skating teacher arrested for 6-year old girl’s rape in Bangalore school

BANGALORE: A paedophile skating instructor arrested on Sunday for the rape of a six-year-old girl in an east Bangalore school allegedly tried to abuse at least four other children in the past three years. There are also doubts if he was using photos of his victims for pornography. “We have reliable information that he used to click photographs of children and would also show them obscene videos of children in the Whitefield school (where he worked before 2011),” police commissioner Raghavendra H Auradkar said after announcing the arrest of Mustafa alias Munna, 30.

Rape of 6-year-old girl in Bangalore school sparks outrage.

A six-year-old girl, studying in Class I in Vibgyor High school in Bangalore, was raped, allegedly by a teacher, police said on Thursday. Two school staffers have been detained for the crime. The incident took place on July 2 but was reported to police after a medical examination of girl some days ago.

    • School closed down?

      I understand your anger, but if you want to protect your children you have to close down every single school in this country. And not just schools but clinics, day care centres, parks and wherever else children can go.

      Why even relatives, parents and grandparents have been known to rape. What do we do – ban everyone?

      Pedophiles can lurk anywhere. You cannot tell, when hiring an employee, if he/she is a pedophile or not. Background checks will reveal truth only if incidents were reported in the first place.

      If the offender had a known history, I am sure no school would have employed him. Whatever else is bad about this country, we sure are morally uptight enough not to employ people with a criminal record.

      The problem is with the society. The question is, did the kids from Whitefield school report this guy? If they did not, why? Why couldn’t they speak about it to someone?

      Clearly it was an unnatural incident and kids can be expected to show some abnormal behavioral signs after the incident. At least one kid should have spoken something about this to someone, given how kids are; they talk about anything and everything.

      Why didn’t the parents notice this?

      If they did, why wasn’t any action taken?

      • I am talking about this school in particular for the lack of due diligence and also lack of action once the incident came to light. In fact, they made irresponsible statements like “Safety is not our responsibility”. They were more interested in saving the school’s reputation than get justice for the child or take measures to plug the gap. I am not saying that for any such incident the school should be closed down.

        • “LACK OF VOCABULARY” You hit the nail on the head, DG.

          Many times when they arrest a pedophile here in the US, I’ve heard Indians here say, “These people are so sick. Such things don’t happen in our culture. That’s why Indian culture is so strict about getting married, etc.”
          And I want to to say to them: Sick people exist in every society. Here in the US, the crime gets reported. There is no stigma for the child or the family. The criminal gets caught and arrested and convicted. He gets a permanent record. Even after he gets out of prison, his life is over. It’s hard for anyone to employ him with such a record. There are consequences to pay, for such heinous actions.

          In India, we don’t want to teach our children about sex education. We teach our children to ‘obey and respect’ elders. What if these elders are rapists and pedophiles? The children haven’t really been taught to evaluate the person’s merits before giving respect. They haven’t been taught that age doesn’t give you maturity or good character. They haven’t been taught to trust their own instincts, to value their own judgment.

          The girl who complains about abuse is likely to be ignored or shamed into silence. “Don’t say bad things about uncle-ji” or even treating the girl as “maligned” are responses that will silence children. Such criminals then will get a free pass to continue to do as they please. After all, the ‘good name’ of the family or the school is more important that the rights of a little girl or boy. ‘Honor’ is more important than stopping the criminal from continuing to perpetrate abuse on more children.

          People need to wake up. A person who is “respectable, married, with kids” can still be an abuser. Marriage and kids and respectability do not make people automatically non-criminals. In fact, a traditional setup of ‘respecting and no questioning elders’ and victim shaming offer great protection for criminals. And we seriously need sex education. Not the birds and the bees variety, but real sex education, the kind that teaches kids about their own rights.

          I strongly disagree with the picture you’re painting of US society. While it might be better at acknowledging sexual abuse than ours,There is still plenty of victim blaming, slut shaming, pushing issues under the carpet, issues with sexual abuse everywhere including the millitary, strong cultural stereotypes such as discouraging girls from science and math, the list is endless as it is anywhere else in the world.

          There might be some things we can learn from the US but treatment of women is not one of them, IMO. I also do not agree with the steps they take against “registered sex offenders”. Some of their laws are extreme to me and very easily abused. It’s the other extreme of what we have here. It’s not a model I want to see in India.

          I understand that you’re only sharing your view of American society but I feel it’s a bit too rosy and I want to share the other side of it also.

      • Dear Vamp,
        Apparently this man s a habitual offender. Why was he not caught until his nth victim? Because people (or in this case the school) always tries to hush up things like this and sack the offender quietly. They just go and join another school. Its all because of the ‘shhh beta’ culture. Such schools SHOULD be shut down. This will be a lesson to other schools too. Next time if something like this happens at a school, the authorities themselves should drag the offender to the police station.
        And seriously, ‘Obey your elders; teachers are gods’ crap should stop.
        We often forget that kids are good judge of characters. If they’re uncomfortable with some one or say that person is ‘bad’ they most likely are. Lets teach kids that teachers are also human beings- capable of both good and bad.

        • Actually, this skating instructor hasn’t only taught in schools, he also taught in apartment/villa complexes, including mine. The first place he taught at, they blacklisted him because he was too irregular. No complaints were received from these apartments, but there were various small complaints from the previous school he taught at. But since the school didn’t hire him, but sourced him form an agency, they didn’t correct a background check/ interview thoroughly. I personally know that teachers from this school were quitting regularly because it was not a hundred percent structured school. They were probably desperate for teachers and that is why they reached out to an agency.
          Secondly, the young girl did report some discomfort and pain to her teacher, but this was ignored. Even when she reported it in further detail, the school sent her home with a doctor recommendation. A teacher later called up this doctor and told him that the child was not ‘normal’ and thus he should keep the details quiet as they were probably false.
          The school even claimed that they were disciplining her in a dark room as she has anger issues. However true this is, the school authorities have behaved in a disgusting manner, and I do not think any parents would want their children returning to this institution. The school is currently closed indefinitely.

        • @ Simply Bored, I’m talking about pedophiles in particular. The track record for convicting them and the awareness among school children through sex education are far far higher in the US than in India. I’m talking about shaming in reference to children which I do not see in the US. I’m not referring to women. I used the word ‘girls’ and ‘boys’ and ‘little children’. Parents here talk to their children openly about sex and safety and abuse. They would be furious if they found ut their child is being abused, rather than not trust what the child is saying. There is a huge difference in the way children are raised – they are taught to trust their own instincts. I do not want to paint a rosy picture. Just in the last post on sexist jokes, I mentioned the sexism in the work environment.

  1. This is happening in many schools. Kids are unable to tell anyone for a long time because the pedophile threatens the kid with consequences. All schools should have CC tvs and all teachers male and female should sign on the schools’ strict safety policy that should include that no kid should be alone with a teacher anywhere within the school premises. Children should be taught what is “good touch bad touch” and what they are supposed to do when any person touches them wrongly or talks inappropriately or shows inappropriate videos. Unless schools take up the issue as their own and join hands with parents to ensure safety of children from sexual assault, our schools and the sanctity of the educational system in our country will remain a farce.

    Recently, a 14 year old came out with her story that the PE teacher had been abusing her since the past couple of years. He lured her into the sports room with chocolates when she was 12 and raped her there three times!! He warned her not to scream or tell anyone or he would kill her. Since then he had been telling her how much he loves her and that this should be their secret game. He is now in judicial custody and I hope, for life under the revised strong IPC and POSCO Acts.

    We have come to the unfortunate state of affairs where we have to teach little children NOT to trust their teachers even. Really sad!

  4. I sometimes start thinking whether the government should pass a law, which would instil more responsibility in the parents bringing up their children (especially sons). The school is questioned, the staff are questioned, the government is criticised, but what happened to the parents who brought these guys into this world!! Do not the parents have the responsibility in bringing up a human being, who is not harmful to the society? Are human being like animals, just give birth, feed them and let them off?
    Many parents are policing their daughters, in each and everything, but are either turning a blind eye to the son, or blissfully unaware of his actions.
    In the book ‘The Bitter Chocolate’ by Pinki Virani, (the book is about child sexual abuse in India), the author describes incidents wherein, in certain joint families, the children have been abused by their own father or paternal male relatives. Though the child’s paternal grandparents are aware of the same, they do not take action and are indifferent to it. They hush it up, so that their family name is not tainted. The mothers either remain powerless or walk out with her kids, facing the stigma of deserting her husband and in-laws, and the responsibility of bringing up the kids all by herself.
    Why do we allow the men in the family to do it, when action can be taken against them? It seriously fails my understanding. Will they allow even a lesser form of crime or misdeed if the daughters or the daughters-in-law do it?

  5. Part of the problem with minor rape is that ‘children’ are not taken seriously.

    Neither the opinions of individuals considered to be ‘children’ are heeded, nor are their ‘rights’ given much thought in our society. It’s almost as if to be considered an individual with a life and an opinion, women have to get married, have two children and turn 40 plus.

    God knows probably the kids did tell their parents, but got shoo-shooed into silence or ignored as pranksters, instead of being taken seriously. And they learnt soon than adults will never understand when they are mischievous, and when they are serious. I don’t think any kid will lie about sexual exploitation. The parents, before the rape, could at least have demanded an inquiry.

    I seriously have little clue about the generation after me, but growing up as a 90s kid, I had a love-hate relationship with my parents. They were better than the generation before, and were quite modern in several things but still were patriarchal enough to make me cringe. I got cuddled, pampered and coochie-cooed a lot, but I also got beaten or caned.

    The point is; I did not grow up to identify my parents as friends or as people I could bare my soul to.

    Children recognize and learn this very fast. They soon identify which adults are approachable and which ones are not. I was also groped about when I was a kid, but I never had the courage to tell my mom until several years later, although she would definitely have supported me.

    Parents these days, also have to make sure they are good friends with their kids. That is how they can ensure the kid can be totally honest with them.

    This lack of honesty soon becomes a weak link in the chain and a child gets exploited by people who observe this trend and know for a fact that children and parents in this country do not have or at least the child does not see in the parent a strong enough understanding and mutual trust to be protected by outsiders.

    • While your views are very theoretically sound I have to wonder, are they practical?

      The problem is that I’m sensing victim blaming in your post. You’re not blaming the child but you are blaming her parents. Parents do the best they can and no parent wants to shut down communication with their child. No matter how open the channels are, there is a trauma, sense of shame, a sense of confusion and just a sense of helplessness that makes a child withdraw into himself/herself when abuse of any kind occurs. This is what makes child abuse – physical, mental, emotional, sexual – such a vicious crime.

        I dont agree with this at all.

        We all have to realise that age and living int his planet for a set amount of time may give us experience in a certain way of life but not wisdom.

        Not everyone on this planet is cut out to be a parent and the sooner we acknowledge that the better. Some need to learn and change, some need to recognize their lack of skills and for some of us it’s a continuous learning process. there are very few perfect parents.

        • Well said, Radha. In fact, many parents in India and similar cultures go out of their way to NOT communicate or encourage open discussions. They see open communication as a way of allowing more control for the children and losing some of their own control. They don’t see the parent child relationship as potentially win-win. It’s generally considered a zero sum game. I’m talking about traditional Indian families here. There are always exceptions, of course. But this is the predominant culture – talking about certain things like sex and sexuality is taboo.

        I am sorry the child’s victimhood is more important to me than your perceived victimization of the parents by my “blaming”.

        Also, in so many cases, including this one, it is the failure on the part of the parents and teachers to recognize signs of abuse and discomfort in the child that escalates into minor rape.

        I understand that minor rape can still happen. But in this case, it is very fishy. Apparently this is not the offender’s first offence. I can understand if one kid doesn’t report it. But so many kids??? Not even one of them??? I don’t think so. I think the parent-teacher community did not pay heed or attention to the children viz. signs of abuse, discomfort or taking their allegations/complaints seriously.

        This is not victim blaming. If you see this as victim blaming, I am sorry I will have to assume you kind of support ignorance about child sexual abuse. Adults in this day and age, that too from cities like Bangalore… well… if they say they did not know they had to educate their children about sexual abuse or even that child abuse can happen anywhere, then I don’t think they were really prepared to be parents at all.

        I am not referring to the raped child’s parents, as I do not know the facts of the case. I am just saying this happens in far too many cases.

  7. This incident has been splashed across newspapers, Facebook has turned into a we-are-the-lynch mob baying for blood scenario, and the latest reports seem to point at a guy who was not named by the child, apprehended. Now the Police Commisioner has been transferred.
    While the school is responsible for a child’s safety when in school, this also brings to the forefront how little or nothing parents seem to do actively, for their own wards. Protecting oneself from sexual abuse cannot be spoken about without talking about sex at some point. Nor can it start without teaching children the right names of body parts. We are so prudish, and irresponsible, that we’d rather have the schools take care of such information for our kids?
    I know one too many parents, who find it indecent to discuss anything sexual openly, in a mature fashion with their kids. Body shaming, shame, confusion about sex, healthy sexual and emotional relationships – these are issues adults themselves cannot discuss without being squeamish! This is not a problem with our schooling system, although it is related.
    This education begins at home! Our kids come home to us! We as parents let them down if we do not teach them better, and in time.
    Studies show that 1 in 4 girls, and 1 in 6 boys get abused, before the age of 12. (The figures could be higher for India, since we don’t have independent studies for the same) CSA is a reality, media has caught on to the circus act only now. This has turned into a girl child safety issue. It is not!! It is a ‘child’ safety issue and we need to wake up, stop turning a blind eye to the warning signs and the potential danger that sexual abuse really is. Boys are sodomised as much or more than girls. Shame makes it that much worse.
    All that I see now is inane forwards that propagate more such myths about CSA – that only girls get abused, (NO) that only men are abusers (Again, in many instances, if not abusers themselves, women greatly help in continuing the abuse), that strangers abuse (more than 90% abusers are known to the child and 37% are abusers from home), that taking showers/ changing clothes in front of your child is harmful (really?), that talking about CSA means we are corrupting their young minds (information is never corruptive. Age appropriate discussions help children and adults alike in being safe). Add to this the talk of cultural purity, decency and of course keeping women home (stay at homes raise better kids??)
    I am a young mother, with an extensive history of abuse myself. This incident sickens me to the pit of my stomach. Why do children not speak about it? Because children hold themselves responsible, because adults do not listen, because when it happens, you only know something really bad happened but you don’t know how to articulate it, or who to turn to.
    If we don’t keep healthy conversations going well into their teenage years, and only have one big talk thanks to headlines, and constantly send mixed messages about the way genders should behave, what is acceptable or not, we are ultimately letting our children down. We are letting our own ignorance and discomfort get the better of us. That is what harms our children. Changing school hiring policies and regulations will be a long time coming, but we are always parents. Why not do that job well?
    Besides, violence against women will automatically resolve itself when there is gender equality. Okay I probably said too much. But I had to put it all out there. Thanks IHM. I hope you can get the right message across.

  8. This is a very sensitive issue with schools. This case was bizarre but even with the best of intentions, schools are rarely equipped to respond rationally and swiftly to such incidents. Part of it is the taboo of coming out in the open with sexual incidents, the reluctance to place blame on someone without adequate evidence also plays a part as it does damage the reputation of the accused beyond repair if he/she were to be proven not guilty later. But what really hurts about the case is the shame/reluctance/fear a 6-year old felt in reporting this immediately! THAT is something we CAN and MUST change! No child should hesitate to tell trusting adults if someone touches them inappropriately and schools must have a group of teachers+parents that are always approachable.

  10. Since a lot of people have said that parents should teach, what are parents doing and that parents have to be friends etc I thought I should comment here.
    I was 14 years old from a very well educated and modern family where in my parents had taught me and spoke to me about sexual abuse, about how I should be careful and when people touch me or ask me favors and etc. I went to a school where back in 1999 we were taught about sexual abuse and shown videos and also about how we must report incidents. In spite of all this when I was sexually abused by the driver who had been working with us I did not open my mouth. I did not tell anyone at home and the abuse continued for more than a year. And when members of my family noticed changes in me and asked me if anything was wrong, even then I did not complain or report the incident.
    Today I am 28 going to be a mother myself and when I look back and reflect on what made me stay shut back then, it all boils down to my teenage rebellion.
    It all started when one day, my mother saw me sitting in the front seat in the car. I had just returned from school and it was the first day that this driver told me that I should sit in the front seat as the back seat cover was torn and he would get it repaired. I entered my house and the first thing my mother asked me was why I had to sit in front. When I told her the reason she said still I should have sat behind and then she shouted at me that I am irresponsible and negligent and that I should be careful henceforth. All this happened in front of the driver and I was very upset and irritated. I was 14 years and was quite a rebel and always did exactly the opposite of what my parents told me. So the same had to be done here. The next day I myself went and sat in the front seat just because I wanted to irritate my other, little did I know that my safety was at stake. This driver took advantage of that situation and then started telling me how my parents hate me and his proof was that they always scolded me for getting less marks and that despite knowing the fact that I do not eat certain foods my mother served them to me (obviously she served vegetables and I hated them). To prove his so called love to me he would buy me a packet of chips everyday and also let me eat roadside food all of which my mother prevented me from doing. I failed in my maths exam and my mother and father were very angry and they shouted – again the driver told me they hated me and that no parent will shout if children fail and that education is not important and his example was that he never shouted at his kids – yes he had 3 girls.
    After more than 1 year, some sense started creeping into my head and I realized that all what was happening was wrong and then I confided in my parents.
    They were shocked, but not once did they hit me or blame me, infact they were more than nice and took me to counselors and helped me cope with my situation.
    Now was it my parents fault or was it the school’s fault. Both my parents and school did all they could but still this happened. Nobody shunned me or shamed me. But still I chose to keep quite because I thought I was teaching my parents a lesson by not listening to them and sitting in the front seat.
    Its very easy to blame the parents but like some one above said what we must think is about why so many people are turning into abusers? What can be done to change that and not simply blame the parents or the system.
    And to the people who say the west is better I would like to say I am a health worker in the west and my husband is a doctor who treats HIV and sexually transmitted diseases. The situation is no better here, we have cases here where in the parents hit the child, or just leave the child or worse still blame the child for their unhappiness and if its a girl call her a slut – similar to what happens in India.
    This is not a question of India or America or some XYZ country – this is about the horrible things happening in the world and it is up to us to see what is the root cause – why is that despite so many cases being reported – despite there being punishment such things are happening??
    What must be done is to identify why abusers do what they do and then what can be done to eliminate that,because if punishment can be the answer then I don’t think that the west would have any crimes as here unlike in India , people are punished for their deeds.
    IHM, sorry for the long story but I just could not tolerate the way the parents were being blamed so easily by some people and also the way India as a country was being blamed.

    • I’m sorry for what you had to go through. And thank goodness, you came out of it stronger and it’s wonderful that your parents were supportive during the difficult time of coping with the abuse that had happened.

      I know you’ve given your example of abuse happening even in the presence of sex education. That doesn’t necessarily mean we should not have sex education. That’s a logical fallacy. That’s like saying Person A comes from a family that educated him and he still grew up and became a thief. That doesn’t mean we should stop educating children, because what’s the point, who knows what they’ll turn out to be. And when a child suffers due to lack of education, yes, we will point out the negative – that had he been educated, he could’ve had more choices in life.

      I’m not blaming these parents in particular. The fact remains that we are severely lacking in sex education in India. Sex education can happen in 2 places – at home and in schools. Your family is an exception to talk about sex education. Most Indians will agree that this is rarely discussed in an Indian home.

      Sex education, on the other hand, is well established in the US. That is all I’m saying. We need to talk about this to our children. At home. And in our schools. Not blaming these parents in particular.

      You said, “What must be done is to identify why abusers do what they do and then what can be done to eliminate that.”
      Well, one of the things we can do right now is educate our kids and not make talking about anything related to sex and body parts taboo.
      The other thing is of course law enforcement – but the police and courts in India have a long way to go.
      Why not do something that is in our hands – awareness building?

    • Hi,

      Your incident is indeed sad and I wish and pray your life is happier now.

      I made the comment about parents taking responsibility. Neither am I blaming parents. In India, parents have very less awareness about their roles and they usually have very bad role models in their parents as to how you should deal with children.

      Even in my comment, I talked about establishing communication channels with the child that have equal status quo for both. I even cited my own example. I was groped and touched too. It wasn’t as if I did not know that was wrong or that my mom would not have taken a broomstick and hunted the guy down had she known about it. She definitely would have.

      The point is, we don’t realize the importance of being approachable, chilled out and friendly as parents. It’s a huge loophole exploited by offenders, including in your case.

      I too come from a relatively modern family, just like you. If parents do not resort to beating, spanking, shouting or scolding for any mistakes done by the child, but rather take a calm, reasonable and friendly approach towards the whole situation, children will not antagonize their parents much. Yes, I know that despite, or probably because of, that chastising and strictness, I probably turned up as a good human being, I think if my father had been less of a terror and my mother not as hyper, I would have found it easier to tell them about someone molesting me.

      We have to understand that approachability and safety are not mutually exclusive roles. For instance, many police officers do take complaints seriously and put in their best towards solving crime. But why do people hesitate to report crime even when they are aware of the sincerity of the said policemen? This is because our policemen are hardly approachable. They aren’t much in terms of proper means of communication or sensitivity. Their way and tone of speaking sounds as if you are the criminal rather than the complainant.

      I know this because I once happened to work with an ex-DIG (he was my boss) and though he was a really thoughtful, caring and wonderful person, I used to dread meeting him every morning because his very voice, behavior, tone and manner of speaking chilled me to the bone.

      In fact this is not a standalone problem with Indian parents, but with all Indians in general. We are known for our approachability and etiquette (most applicable for customer service), or lack thereof.

      Anyway, wish you all the best.

  11. It is horrific. Children have a right to be safe in schools – that means THOROUGH background checks, no closed doors, security, and keeping the eye open for each other.
    Shame on the school. Shame, shame….. The parents should band together and sue the school, and the perpetrators should get the death penalty.
