India: Largest Democracy in the World, Today is the Worst Democracy in the WorldLetter by William Gomes Salem-News.com
The rape and brutal wounding of a young pair of citizens, a woman who had her life planned out and ahead of her, has just shaken India to the core.
(YORK, UK) - One of the most harrowing stories to come out of India in recent months was the Delhi gang rape of a 23-year old medical student that left her with mortal injuries. She and a companion were thrown from a moving bus after being savagely attacked and raped.
It is a problem that has its claws in every aspect of Indian society; from the Dalit women and girls who suffer a particularly harsh level of mistreatment as their culture represents the bottom rung of society in India's caste based culture, to upper caste Indians who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Both caste and misogyny determines literally how well people will survive, not unlike other countries so much, but here it is a blight upon the blossoming of an entire society and people deserve better.
The rape and brutal wounding of a young pair of citizens, a woman who had her life planned out and ahead of her, has just shaken India to the core and the world is watching intently, waiting to see if real steps will be taken to correct the problem; changes that will make rape and sexual abuse have a consequence.
