While we were all busy begging for justice for the 8 year old Asifa who was raped and murdered in Kathua, another 10 year old has been raped in Chhattisgarh.
A 10-year-old, who was attending a wedding function in a village in Kabirdham District of Chhattisgarh on Wednesday was raped by a 25-year-old. The poor child was raped and killed by smashing her head with a stone.
The accused, Uttam Sahu was a friend of the bridegroom. The girl was reportedly a relative of the bridegroom.
While everyone was busy in the celebrations, Uttam Sahu took the girl away and committed the crime. He dumped her body in a dry riverbed in the village on Thursday morning.
So people, you need justice for Asifa? Or for Nirbhaya? Or for the Unnao rape case victim? Or for someone else? There are thousands of rape cases registered every year in India. But, what do we do? Nothing. Have we become that shameless?
When the entire nation was busy asking for justice for Asifa, crying and shouting on the streets with candles in their hands, another girl was being raped in a different part of the country.
Is this what we have come to? How useful were your protests? What change did they bring?
