SHHH…Nobody Cares

“Rape is rape, it should not be politicized” says PM Narendra Modi. Our Honorable Prime Minister seems to have forgotten his statement made on December 2, 2013, when he said: “Congress has made Delhi the rape capital”. I am sure that too was an ‘Election Jumla’ and he didn’t mean what he said.

The question is does anyone in our country truly mean what he or she says when it comes to women’s right or crime against women. Smriti Irani, Sushma Swaraj, Meenakshi Lekhi… all of them prolifically protested (and rightly so..) the Nirbhaya rape incident, but went cold when it came to Kathua and Unnao. Then perhaps it was the opportunity to oust the Congress government that motivated them more than the brutal rape of the young innocent Delhi girl.

All the glitterati protests, candle marches, how many of these are actually heartfelt and real? Not one follow up action, no PILs, no answers sought from the administration, no relief or support for the bereaved family… just an upmarket media studded ‘roadshow’. A few hashtagged handwritten posters (the current social media trend) some emotional dialogues and protests registered. Good to go for the next social engagement. Matter closed.

Lastly, what a weak and timid opposition, at least the BJP had protested with their might and force in 2013 for Nirbhaya…whatever the reason. The current opposition including the Congress put up a half-hearted, half-baked, I really don’t care.. type of a protest for Katua and Unnao victims.

It’s the common men and women of India who are silently fighting for the rights of the little girl from Kathua or against the power drowsed MLA from Unnao unnoticed by the rest of the world and celebrity struck media. God bless India…God bless our daughters.
