Delhi Rape: Sorry Damini...

Delhi Rape: Sorry Damini...

By Dr Suhael Ahmed

(Dr Suhael Ahmed is a Maxillofacial surgeon from Mangalore. He can be reached at drsuhael@hotmail.com)

Dec 30: Every Indian, including the central and state governments and the Women’s Commission needs to say sorry today to Damini. Not only to the unfortunate Delhi rape victim, but also to the innumerable Daminis who have gone through the horrific and traumatizing experience of being raped in the past.

We have all woken up today because of the magnitude of this incident. A young educated woman, although accompanied by a male friend and not so late at night (9:30 pm) in the heart of the capital city of world’s largest Democracy was left to defend herself against 6 demons.

And then the blame game starts.

Delhi chief minister wanted the police commissioner to be sacked after the incident. She squarely put the blame on the area police who she says should take the responsibility.Couple of officers were sacked too just to pacify the angered public.

Now consider this. A couple boards a bus. Six men in the bus including the driver, who were on joy ride tease the girl. Her male friend objects. Scuffle breaks out. They hit the male with a iron rod. The girl puts up a fight, bites the hand of the main accused, Ram Singh. This agitates Ram singh who is already intoxicated. The 6 men rape her turn by turn, cause her severe injuries with the same iron rod which tears apart even her intestine.They completely undress both the girl and her male friend and push them out of the bus.

Now what could the police do here. How can the local area police be blamed completely. If anyone has to take blame, it has to be the chief minister herself. Being a woman herself, she should have taken cognizance of earlier numerous crimes in her city and made effort to bring about changes in the system. After all nobody has better access to worlds 10th most powerful person as she has.

The main accused Ram singh had once appeared on a TV programme, 'Aap Ki Kacheri' hosted by ex-IPS officer Kiran Bedi. Singh wanted compensation from bus owner for the injury caused during a bus accident. In the programme his employer had mentioned that he was a drunkard and a reckless driver. Eventually he did not get compensation. Even after such a background, his latest employer was a school. Everyday he picked and dropped school children by the bus. So no lessons learnt there.

We have ourselves to blame to a large extent.

Now that an innocent life is lost, all we can do is light candles and take a walk.

There should have been a change in the system earlier. Now, if at least this incident doesn’t bring about change, nothing else would.

The change has to start from within. We need to teach male children at home as well as in schools about how to behave with a woman. Also, our insensitive parliamentarians need to be taught how to talk about women in public.

Every state needs to have in their cities, at least one all-woman police station, so that women victims of harassment or any other crime can report and give statement to a woman police officer.

Women's Commission should have a separate dedicated cell for supporting victims of sexual abuse.

There is already lot of talk about fast track courts. Other than having speedy justice, the rape accused and convicts' names with pictures should be put up in every bus station and railway station of their respective cities. A small corner of the stations should be dedicated for this purpose.

Lets see how we improve ourselves from here on, or is this just a momentary outburst of emotions?

For now, lets silently pray for the departed soul and say “Sorry Damini”.

    The furore over the tragic death of the brave girl who fought against her rape has died /abated. Our judiciary is still vascillating over the punishment to be meted out to the culprits. This delay and lethargy on the part of the system to punish the criminals is encouraging more criminals to take advantage of our judiciary system. the punishment should be swift,severe so that it creates fear in the hearts of the culprits and deters indulging in such nefarious activities and at the sametime assures the safety of the citizens.

    Society must blame themselves for not rallying together against all careless people in power. Power was always with the people. Women should have gathered for years and turned together on their abusers. The Age of Aquarius , since December 2012 is really here. The age of humanitarianism is here. Great understanding of who really has the power. Blame yourselves, who are stuck in tradition, fear, incapable of self change. Humans will not change unless someone becomes a martyr. this is a great event which only God could muster up. Indian women will finally become FREE. God knows how you work. What is takes to make you change. Look how far he had to go. We are lame, fearful, things.

    I totaly disagree with Rupali. From my point of view is that her fault was..she was a lady/a girl. Rest, she was an innocent girl of 23yr old.she was a bravehearted girl who tried bravely 2 save her and her friend. Bt as she was a girl,and a girl is always weaker than boy and that was the main reason of her lost. Her fault was :1. She was a lady .2. A lady weaker than boy & this weaknesses led her to sleep in rest forever away 4m the male dominance society

    Just like the food chain if we had a pyramid for an indecent society, this would be a case for study. We today see youngsters behaving very indecent, rude, unmannered and most of all Dadagiri is the rule of the day either in colleges or schools. The police themselves are mannerless, our politicians are shameless, our government officials are scrupulous, so this behaviour is the tip of the pyramid of our society today.

    Good article that hits the nail on the head. Most of these crimes arise from the inherent sexist attitudes as a result of lack of moral values. Human sensitivity should ensure that we don't turn a blind eye if even minor incidents occur in our presence. Each one of us have a responsibility to act.....only then can our country be safe.

    Dear Dr. Suhael Ahmed, we do join you in saying sorry to Damini who suffered this ghastly tragedy. I also feel sad and sorry for all the likes of Damini, who had been among our sisters and daughters, whose sufferings have gone unnoticed or who had been denied justice owing to the passive and unscrupulous system prevailing in the country.

    Unfortunately even in this issue I see readers unnecessarily mentioning names of political parties which is not going serve any purpose other than arguments. The need of the hour is a strong government with a totally independent judicial system, uninfluenced by any political pressure or money power, with sincere, honest and dedicated law enforcement officials. The legislators must also honestly ensure that laws are uted and enforced effectively so that full justice is provided to all Daminis who have suffered or died at the hands of those monsters. At the sametime we should be grateful to Damini for awaking the nation and all of us should now ensure that her sacrifice does not go in vain.

    Only Inculcating cultural and moral values at home and schools and thus change of mind set will be a guarantee of good behaviour with females.First one should not forget one's connection with females at his very home.Secondly trials should be fast and fair so that no culprit is let off and no innocent is falsely implicated.It is the system which needs to be improved.My heart goes for and I am extremly sorry for Damini and other such sufferers.let us not forget the incident and our anger should not subside unless such crimes do not vanish..P.R.Vidyarthi

    No Indian should feel proud to be an Indian till the culprits are hanged to death. When the clock strikes 12 and we enter 2013, all the TV channels should go off air for a minute as a mark of respect for our SISTER/DAUGHTER DAMINI. We all should pray her soul rests in peace and God give enough courage to the family members to bear her absence in the coming years. There should be no New Year celebrations as there is nothing to feel great about after this shameful incident.

Where there are strict laws there also these types of wrong acts are done but if we as a people decide that we'll unite and will never bear these kind of acts and oppose where we see anything wrong. Then we can surely have a better tomorrow. If we just thing the girls as our sister then we'll always take a right decision. May God bless us with purity.

How many rapes every year happening in India, why cant govt makes powerful laws to funish the culprits with permanent castration or death sentence. All six culprits should be castrated within 1month and then people can see the results.

    Apart from revisiting our laws an important step is to educate our children and youth in human behaviour. There is an animal in all of us and the only reason it doesn't surface in most of us is because of our upbrining, culture, our own wisdom and understanding and perhaps to some extend our spirituality. But there is a large void in our education system. In school we learn how to get the highest marks, admission in top colleges, high paying jobs, fabulous careers, basically all the ingredients required for surviving the rat race, but noone teaches us the basic rules how to live in society, how to mingle and respect members of the opposite sex, other religions, castes and cultures. Isn't an Education system supposed "TO EDUCATE" ? How can we call it education when deep down we are just two legged animals ? I've seen educated individuals having good jobs portraying very sexist attitudes and an inability to respect other religion and cultures. Then there are those who pretend to be very accomodating but under the cloak of respectibilty have a rotting mind. I am not an expert in this matter, but with my limited knowledge and understanding believe that "We grow up into what we are moulded into" and here lies the responsibilty of the elders and teachers to mould us into all round decent human beings. If we dont give our children the right values, chances are they will never give theirs and down the generations we will have a very dysfunctional society (which i think we already have) where money and power rule the roost - but empathy and compassion are in the dumps. Damini's case has brought out this harsh reality in front of us - that beneath the glamour and wealth of our Nation lies a medieval mindset, that inspite all our economic prowess we are still such a backward nation where men and women are not equal, where there is so much communal strife and poverty. Lets hope the sacrifice Damini made will not go in vain and will be the dawn of a new beginning.

    I am an Indian & as we all know that India got independent on 15th Aug 1947. Also accordingly we were given some facilities, rights to exercise. But I don't think so that we are actually independent. Even after 66 years from our independence, we are not able to enjoy any type of right which is given to us. So, I feel that there is no use of celebrating any kind of national festivals.
    Gang rape, robbery,etc many types of incidents are taking place frequently in India. Recently such a worse gang rape has taken place in India which has shaken our country but it seems that our government haven't took a lesson from this incident. I can surely say that a time is not too far when our brave freedom fighters will again come to give us real independence. They will change our constitution & will make India a better place to live in.

    There were many damini's in India since independence who never got freedom from the clutches of their own men. Now Khap panchayat the male dominated self appointed rulers have objected to strict rape laws even to the extent of stopping castration and death penalty. They will feel that women folk will lodge false complaint. This itself shows the thinking of the Khap men. They need to be educated and for the politician they are a cream for votes. Time the broad and like minded people crush and destroy this khap panchayat completely till its roots.

    First time in my life I feel unsafe to travel to my mother country even with my husband because of these devil/beasts who live in India. It makes us feel emabarrased that our own Indians do these coward act on us. First time I feel not to be Indian any more. I feel so secured and safe where I am now. Shame on those people make us feel this way. Many comments I have read blaming the people who travel or migrate overseas. People blame western countries for influencing sex before marriage or multiple partners/boyrfreinds because it's not India's culture. Now what about this gang rape committed by our own Indian to our own citizens? is this Indian culture? Everyday we get to read these gang rapes in the news papers makes us feel sick. I wish those men who have invloved in this incident must be tortured infornt of public not by just hanging, but ashamed infront of public before hanging by exposing them and slasshing their private parts with a sharp knife. They have to suffer the double pain and agony which they have caused tho this poor girl. This is what to be done to all the rapists in India.

    Damini, the symbol of bravery, will always remain alive in our hearts. How can a man do such heinous crimes. Why does not a thought comes to man at that time that she also is sister of someone. Why these beautiful creatures are not safe, should they live a life of this forever?. Shouldn't they have rights to walk and talk freely as we men? How can I (we) do such an act when I have my 4 own sisters. Why we treat them as a sex object? Are they not from the same planet as we are from..!!! The life of Damini is lost, burning candles would not get her back, but we men need to change our thinking and doings to the women folk, so that tomorrow there will no more Damini. Think, today it was Damini, tomorrow it could be our sister, mother, or wife. Oh, men you have to come a long way. May her soul rest in peace.

    This crime bears the hallmark of bad governance. Heads should role starting from the government at the very top down to the culprits that committed this barbaric crime. The aftermath of this crime is littered with political rhetoric yet, even after the death of the victim we can see little or no progress in the affirmation of justice from the government. As I see it, India is a lawless country where police accountability is a misnomer.
    Abuse of women in India is systematic of an environment created by the dowry system that asserts a burden on the parent of a girl child. Despite legislation to outlaw the dowry system, the negative sentiments associated with it remain that to this day serve only to strengthen the foundations of such bigotry.
    Whatever the government of India decides to do with rape legislation henceforth, it will be fruitless until the endemic pathological stigma against women is addressed at the social level starting in the schools. The whole issue is a function of education (or lack thereof) from one perspective and the abuse of power and/or wealth on the other. India needs to treat the disease not its symptoms.

    we cannot sit with candles in our hands for this brave girl who has been become the representative of all the past raped ladies. we have to do something. the girl got raped and killed by those scoundrels will not be valueless. we must pray to our law that to give those demons the most dangerous punishment if it has. death is not suitable for them. i think to give permission to the military for shoot them openly on that particular bus at that time when she(damini) died. may your(Damini's) soul get peace and u will be born as an Indian.

    Death sentence for these sick men is not enough for them to suffer the way Damini did.

    In my opinion they should die in the way Damini did by having metal rods rupture there organs without medical attention!!! Thats what I call justice for Damini.

    sometime back people of India was asking Indian government to interfere in Irish Govenments law, now this is the right time to fix your own law which is very very very important or else it is going to remain as joke. Maybe very soon we will find Billboards saying Beware Of Indians...

    I read the story on Damini early this morning and Im so angry I dont know what to do! She fought for her life suffering for what must have seemed like an eternity. For what? Because monsters wanted and FELT LIKE inflicting pain on her and DIDNT EVEN KNOW HER! NO. An example should be made out of these dogs to stop this foolishness once and for all!

    We won’t get justice until and unless we punish the culprits. Under Sharia (Islamic law) ution is the final verdict for rapists or murderers and four eye witnesses is enough to punish them and once it is proved at Sharia court ,then ution will take place immediately in the public place. Such kind of a punishment will minimize the crime in the society. Hence you will find rare rape cases in Saudi Arabia compared to other countries.

    Hi friends we all are talking here about damini and about her rapists to be punished with several opinions,with all due respect I have 1 question for all of you,Do you think just giving death sentence to those culprits will bring justice to damini or other victims,its us who have to change our mentality and to give respect to women,if we do respect our mother in home then how can we disrespect women outside,it simply means we don't even respect our mother,its a shame for all of us,we always talk a lot and do nothing,its not only the govt who is responsible for this but its we the citizen of India who e equally responsible for all kind of crimes,we always think when something like this will happen with us then we will take action,but we always forget that if something like this can happen to all others it can happen with us as well,we are so busy and selfish with our lives that we dont even look towards the society,we always ignore whats happening in our society,then how can we blame just the govt or the judiciary,or the police,its we how have to take responsibility.let me ask you a q?we always talk about eve teasing,whenever we see these kind of thing do we even try to stop these thing,i dont think we all do tht,we just sit and talk about eve teasers but nobody try to stop it,so who is responsible we or the govt,if we can be strong enough to stop these little things in our society,college,area,then it might create an impact,coz friends we public are the strongest mass,no police no govt no one else is as strong as a mass,but no we cant unite together coz we have ego that why we should indulge in all these things,coz its the duty of the police person,i hv lot to say but in short its a huble request to all my civilized indian brothers and sisters that be responsible towards our society,only then we can change the society and then the country,about damini and all other who have sacrificed their lives have given us a message to get unite and to change the society,thanks

    We need to request the media to keep updating or airing this issue until the judgement is passed against the culprits for their henious acts and the punishment is uted. This should not be another so called protest which was on TV for Black gold or kala phathar, 2G and many more scams which is not even spoken for a minute in any of the media. Let us not dig the hole and bury this issue. How can we keep this issue alive? How media will help the humanity?

    There is no language to express grief on the inhuman attack on Damini by the six demons.Damini departed but left behind a great resolution for each and every Indian to save the dignity and prestige of women.

    Chchaya Sharma is not the first Damini in India. The country has witnessed several Daminis earlier & still such crime does not want to stop. The present inner voice in whole may bring a change in the society. We the common people should take a vital role with the Government to make a strong law preventing such inhuman crime as if no further can not appear.

    The six beasts who ruined the life of Damini should be awarded death sentence not in any secret room but in public place so that other demons could get a great lesson from Such ution.

    i want ask parents to teach good lession. like giving respect to parents, respect teachers, respect religion, respect our friends, respect all who is elder than us.
    Question is do we follow above thinks.
    For example. When we travel in local bus if mother is carrying baby and standing. do we give our place to that mother? This is also type of rape. (if just watch her but we do live our place to sit that poor mother)
    These good thinks should come from our heart, it will come only if parents teach above good thinks in the childhood.
    Once again i want to request all brothers and sister pls. stop blaming each other. lets promise to our motherland we will give respect to our mother and our sister.

    Dear Doctor,

    Daminis case is so outrageous, it has caused a lot of anger throughout the world. The Indian Governmet needs to answer fast and be brutal for the memory of this dear lady, and many that will suffer if no action is taken, the world felt for India when the Pakistan attack took place, but now India needs to hold its head in shame for this dear young lady, done by her own countrymen. Hang them, the bus driver and the Police that covered this all up. Disgraceful disgusting humans who make stray animals look like they are worthy.
