Play the blame

Huh. So is this the next boost of evolution we experienced on 21st Dec 2012, the effects of which are apparent now?

A 23- year old female was brutally raped by a gang of six rotten specimens of the XY-chromosome on 16th Dec, who later died due to the injuries suffered. This incident triggered on the most loud and widespread protests in the history of democratic India. Marches were organized, demands were made, complaints were had… none of which could alter the end result. She died. At least the death wasn’t in vain. The passing of this victim forced the overseers of our nation to finally encounter this gross violation of not only a person’s anatomy but her mind and persona as well, a crime that they had managed to dodge tackling on every chance, mainly because they also partook in it.

Rape has been a part of our history for as long as we’ve been a part of it. Every bloody generation has had its share of physical violations of a person; from Genghis Khan to Sonia Gandhi, from the time of the beginning of the Indus civilization to the far reaches of the Western Ghats , it’s all in there. The knights did their share and the king did as well;  to whom should the common man or woman complain? Our culture has always frowned upon the victims, not the culprits. Our society has mocked and ridiculed and blamed the innocent for their situation, which, despite being an atrociously incorrect and iniquitous(and no, there are no shades of grey here), is still very much part of our system- a system which is supposed to not inject its personal views into its decisions, and take action against the guilty, not violate the guilty part itself. Which is exactly most of the higher-ups are considering as of now.

In stead of tackling this problem, I’m sorry I’m being far too insensitive, this sin, our politicians are playing the censure-card against women. Now I won’t be taking names- oh what the hell, I am taking name: Andhra Pradesh Congress president Botsa Satyanarayana, Kailash Vijayvargiya, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat, Abhijit Mukherjee, Banwari Lal Singhal, BJP legislator from Alwar city, Congress MP and son of President Pranab Mukherjee. These vermin are suggesting that there is a certain limit women shouldn’t cross, or they deserve what is doled out to them by testosterone-jumped, cowardly freaks.  Following the common rapist motto,”She wore a short skirt, therefore she wanted it?”one of these politicians(douchecanoe no 2) proclaimed,”One has to abide by certain moral limits. If you cross this limit you will be punished, just like Sita was abducted by Ravana”. Another one blamed westernization of India as a possible cause, because we were all so fucking clean during the medieval times, right? The last one referred to female protesters as “dented and painted”. One said that wearing short skirts has led to the recent rise in rape cases. Yeah, right. Because wearing short skirts is what provoked those sex swines into raping, beating and throwing the victim off a moving bus along with her male companion. Their collective verdict is that girls shouldn’t venture out in the dark, girls shouldn’t wear modern clothes, and our country should make no progress towards another era but fold back into the dark ages, when you could be sexually harassed and no one would give a shit! Off with their heads, is what I think. Where’s the red queen when you need her?

None of this has taken place yet, the culprits are being brought to justice and everyone’s either happy or shitty for now. But this at least shows the consciousness that ruling us. Teaching not our sons about the evils of such crimes of hatred and power, but covering our daughters. Our country’s people and her citizens are all too ashamed to admit to any such thing and trying to tackle it by acknowledging who or what is at  fault, so they blame the girl for provoking.

Rape is everywhere, in every newspaper of everyday(I checked), in every other alley we’ll find a person harassed, in every other home we’ll find a child abused. Rape continues to occur not because we let modern notions creep into our head, but because we continue to ignore the transgressions of our past and so it continues.
