Yes, Rape is my birthright. I am born as an inferior, hapless and a susceptible creature called a woman.
Being a woman, before the people, the guilt kills you. The guilt of always being at fault and being objectionable. A woman is a human being but the predominant men treat them no better than animals. Be it the way you dress or the way you talk, you are always erroneous. You are raped and violated because it is your birthright and if you ignore it, it is and will forever be your mistake. Funny is this society, talk about being modern where every individual is a sexist.
Rape is defined in the dictionary as an act of plunder, violent seizure or abuse and despoliation. Merely what if this brutal act of crime is characterized as simply a fault? On the contrary, Indians define rape as prepense attempts of the women who call forth men to physically harass them by behaving indecently and being inebriated in inappropriate clothing.
Women are protesting and fighting for their rights, the government shuts their mouths by providing them questionable security and protection. The government officials have various opinions on this subject.
“The victim is as guilty as her rapists. … She should have called the culprits brothers and begged before them to stop.” – Spiritual leader and alleged rapist Asaram Bapu on the Delhi gang rape and murder
“Boys are boys, they make mistakes.”– Mulayam Singh Yadav, Samajwadi party chief
Choose between a “promiscuous culture” and a “safe environment”.– Satyapal Singh, Mumbai police commissioner, after the Shakti Mills gang rape in Mumbai
“Rape is a social crime which depends on the man and the woman. It is sometimes right and sometimes wrong.”– Babulal Gaur, BJP politician, and Madhya Pradesh home minister
“We should stop our girls from wearing jeans.”– Ranvir Singh, Haryana Khap Panchayat leader
Rapes are on the rise because “men and women interact with each other more freely now”.– Mamata Banerjee, chief minister of West Bengal
Rape is not a mistake, it is a criminal offense. We won’t choose between a promiscuous culture and a safe environment, it is the 21st century. Rape is never right and it does not depend on the victim. Western clothing is not the problem, lecherous men are. There are children being raped, so is it their fault too?
Please, we don’t need protection from such hypocrites. We want what we deserve, FREEDOM.
