Kathua rape triggers protests in Dublin

Chaudhary Lal Singh

Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh also announced on Thursday that his government will attempt to pass a bill that will award capital punishment to rapists, according to The Imphal Free Press.

In particular they highlighted case of Asifa Bano, an eight-year-old girl recently raped and murdered in Kathua, Kashmir, with chants of "Modi go back", "Modi out out" and "Justice for Asifa".

Under India's Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act passed in 2012, which covers victims under 18 years, police should collect evidence within a month of the complaint being filed and the court should complete a trial within a year.

Singh had hit out at the current prime minister for his long silence over the gang rape cases and said that Modi "should follow his own advice to me" and "speak more often".

Being the father of three daughters, it was shocking to Singh that the victim was so young that she didn't even know the difference between Hindu and Muslim.

Betts, Benintendi lead sizzling Red Sox past Angels
Boston pushed across two runs in the fourth, one on an RBI double by Martinez and one on an RBI single by Devers, to go ahead 3-1. Ryan Braun slugged a pinch-hit, three-run blast to join Robin Yount as the only players in Brewers history to reach 1,000 RBIs.

In both cases, it is Prime Minister Narendra Modi's BJP which is facing the brunt of the outrage.

Those who spoke on the occasion included chairman Passban Hurriyat, Uzair Ahmed Ghazali; Pakistan Teherik Insaf leader Khawaja Farooq Ahmed; Jamaat Islami PaK leader, Sheikh Aqeel ur Rehman; Pakistan People's Party leader Shoukat Javed Mir, and others. At least 15 students were injured after the protests turned violent in Anantnag district of south Kashmir and police used tear gas and resorted to baton-charge to tame the agitators.

The police spokesman further said they request citizens not to fall prey to any speculations and rumours which are meant to disturb peace in the state. we seek their cooperation for maintaining law and order, he added.

The teen had accused the MLA of raping her in June previous year. Like the Kathua victim, the Unnao survivor, a teenager allegedly raped by a #bjp MLA, is still awaiting justice. "We are fighting to punish her culprits but it is unfortunate that people living far away are interpreting this case without knowing the facts", he said.

Sunita Viswanath, board member of Sadhana and one of the main organisers of the rally, told PTI that the rally was a beginning rather than an end toward calling for action against the horrific rapes and murders and to demand justice. The guilty deserve death penalty, no less.
