Negative Mentality- Why people stand behind rapists?
Kathua rape-murder case and Hindu- Muslim battle. It's a big shame
New Delhi: In January 2018, Asifa Bano, an eight-year-old girl was wearing a purple dress, was riding her horse in a meadow in Kashmir when a man kept her in the woods. He followed.
According to the police, he grabbed him from the neck and forced him to take gold pills. With the help of a friend, he says, he pulled him into a nearby temple and locked him in.
For the next three days, the police say, two men and at least one other raped her repeatedly. The suspects told the investigators that their purpose was to ruin the mood of Asifa community outside the area. Finally, he was a police constable after a man, allegedly urging him to rape for the last time.
A few days later, pieces of Asifa were found in the woods, in the same purple dress, now blurred with blood.
Eight people have been arrested in connection with the case, and according to the police in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, many people have admitted where the murder was done. Two police officers from the accused have accepted thousands of dollars to cover the crime. One of the arrested suspects said that he was 15 years old, although, on the basis of the medical officer, the police officer believes that he is at least 19 years old.
It seemed like a different, horrible episode of sexual violence in India, by cruel men, persecuted against a powerless girl. But in the months of Asifa's assassination, the matter has become another battleground in the religious wars of India.
Some Hindu nationalists have turned this into a rallying cry - not for justice but for the sake of Asifa, it is running to protect the accused. All the arrested people are Hindus, and the horrors of Asifa are Bakarwal Muslims.
Some police officers investigating the matter are also Muslim, and for this reason, rape supporters say that they cannot be trusted.
This week, a crowd of lawyers prevented physicians from entering the court to file a charge against the men to physicians. Officers started retreating in the evening to complete the paperwork in the evening.
Protests and counterprotests are now spreading. On Wednesday, protesters closed Kathua, which included dozens of Hindu women, who helped block the highway and organize the hunger strike.
Bimla Devi, one of the protesters, said, "They are against our religion." If the accused men are not released, then he said, "We will burn ourselves."
Police officials say that they have physical evidence and DNA tests that connect the defendant with the death of Asifa. He also said that he has interviewed more than 130 witnesses who clearly confirmed the facts that emerged.
Attempts to derail the case
Many prominent members of India's major political power, although the Hindu Nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the PDP in Jammu and Kashmir, the BJP is pressurizing the state police to remove the matter, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) ) It will be a better, more neutral agency to handle.
Many people suspect that this is an attempt to liberate the accused, given that the Bureau is a hand of the Central Government, which the BJP controls.
Crime inside the Hindu temple
A Hindu temple in the center of the crime makes this case even more combustible. Police say that Sanjay Ram, the guard of the temple, prepared this plan as a way to terrorize the Bakr and they recruited a nephew and some friends to abduct and kill Asifa. Police say that he believes that Asifa was chosen only because he himself and "soft target" was.
For generations, Bakarwal said, who flows with their herds in the plains and hills of northern India has taken a lease of pastoral pastures of Hindu farmers for pasture for their animals in winter. But in recent years, some Hindus in the Kathua region have started campaigning against the nomination. The villagers said that Ram was his ringleader.
One Bakarwal leader Talib Hussain said, "His poison is spreading."
"When I was young, I remember that the names of Sanjī Rām in Muslim women were called. If they wanted to scare each other, then they would take Sanjī Rām's name, because he would go to Bikrwala for misbehaving with women.".
Emotions between the two communities are so bitter that when Asifa did not return from the grassland, his parents immediately suspected that something terrible has been done for him.
He admitted the police and went to Ram's small temple where Ram works. He stressed that he did not see the girl. The temple was closed. According to the police, at that moment, Asifa was hungry, a table and some plastic were hidden under the matt.
Asifa's father Mohammad Yusuf Pujwala said that his daughter had been killed for one reason: to remove the Bakarwals. But we are here and live here, this is our home." She was almost tired of mourning Asifa, she never went to school, even though her brothers had her. To do his favorite thing was to play in grassland.
