Agree that its gud that a punishment was metted out but its ironic that only poor people get such punishments faster. If the same had been a big shot (and we have had cases including the one from the S Kumar family couple of weeks back), then the case would have been buried ...for sure ...
Indian judicial system is a joke ...and this incident again highlights the fact.
Its good to learn that the accused got punished. At the same time the law should be applied equally for people who are popular and/or in high ranks. Then only common man can trust our legal system and law enforcement.
Rape is a heinous crime and should be punished to the fullest extent according to LAW.
Having said that, I was totally astonished to see the suggestions of punishments in other comments. A partial listing includes: ..."death by hanging or electric chair" ..."his private part should be chopped off" ..."punish them by cutting there hand or leg" ..."render sexually impotent"
What sort of medieval mentality is this? Do these people wish to turn India into a Saudi Arabia? No civilized country should entertain cruel and unusual punishment such as dismemberment.
I think partly, this "mob mentality" results from the pathetic situation of our justice system (courts). If more rapists (and other criminals) were prosecuted and sentenced in a timely manner, people would not be baying for the blood of the one or two fellows who happen to get convicted.
Was the judgement right or wrong i dont know. What makes me laugh is the reaction of the people...sayings such as "kudos to indian juidicial system etc". The constable is convicted as he does not have political and monetary muscle to do any thing. What about Jessica lal case or as a matter of fact about Kataria murder case...or Salman khan case.
yeah "kudos to our blind judicial system" which cant see the moneyed culprits....
While one should appreciate the legal system for coming up with its verdict so fast, this also means that if people and media pressurize the government and law enforcement agencies in the right direction, things can change. However, there is another side of the story which is rellay appalling. Life of the girl and her family changed drastically after this incident. I am not sure but I remember reading like the family has shifted the residence and the girl changed her college. Even today when the verdict was announced, no one from the family was there. Why? Because the family still feels that despite the fact that the girl had not done anything, the society will still look down upon her as the rape victim and her future is therefore, gone forever. Which means that rather than helping her forget what has happened to her, the society will make her relive that incident again and again. Why in our society a rape victim feels ashamed when no mistake has been committed by her? When the victim needs the society the most, it ostracises the victim by labelling her as a prey to have fallen before the lust of some pervert. Why? Why a rape victim cannot breathe the same air like all of us?
rather than blowing wind into this burning fire.. try to shut the fire... think about the victims in such cases...
Boys kindly come forward to think about the life of such girls / ladies..... Whatever they have suffered is a physical scar which will be no more after a period of time.... But the mental scar which they have suffered will not heel unless or until they get married to a person who respects them as parteners, their feelings & also feels that there is nothing bad about them... for whatever has happened has happened allegedly by force.
Comeforward my brothers of INDIA.... Dont think that we are giving lives to them.... Dont take it that much high...Comeforward whole-heartedly to marry such innocent victims....Stand-up to do this & also stand-up against dowry.....this is a slow poison to us only.
