The news reaching the news media has it that two minor Dalit girls were raped and murdered in Lakhimpur Kheri, Ashok Vats, Uttar Pradesh. The news got out while there was a discussion on NDTV which was anchored by Nidhi Razdan.
Lakhimpur Kheri: BJP leaders say young girls intentionally get raped
The BJP leaders opined by blaming the young girls that they plan to run away. Plan to meet and plan to get raped. The statement shocked the person casting the news and has to go dive more deeply into the statement. He checked the video clips several times since he can’t believe what he is hearing the leader say.
It was a surprise to him to see that such comments were made on national TV when there were discussions on sexual atrocities. This sexual palava was between two adolescents, the first was 15 years of age and the other is 17 years of age. The statement that BJP leaders make is somewhat not new, it is right for them to make such comments in that manner as to what crime was committed.
Lakhimpur Kheri: Another case and the statement of BJP leaders
There was a brutal rape and murder case again. This time a young woman in Hathras was raped and murdered. The UP police did not agree to register the case until when the high court issued that they should register the case.
Rajeev Srivastava says;
Rajeev Srivastava made a statement that makes everyone wonder. He said that the lady raped is wayward. In the end, the person accused of raping the young lady is innocent.
To what the BJP leader said, the National Commission of women gave out a notice to him because of the statement he made. Till now, no action was taken on that matter.
BJP MLA Renukacharya said;
After the previous case, Renukacharya said that there are some dresses worn by ladies that drive men to want to have intercourse with them. He then tolls forward that women should dress decently. Renukacharya is a BJP and MLA. Simply put, his statement also means women are responsible for the crimes committed against them.
Lakhimpur Kheri: No justice
We can say there is no justice for women. The men that committed all these heinous crimes are left in society, not only that, but they also stand to hold important positions in the party that rules India. The statement made and crime committed is not new in India anymore, insulting, abusive and sexist words are now been used by the political leaders in important positions.
Take a look at the case of the minor in Lakhimpur Kheri and check out the kind of words issued by the so-called political leaders. Nevertheless, there were no actions taken against this set of people by the party leader. Instead of blaming these leaders, they are defended and protected.
The girls were Dalit and they belong to a very poor family, inside Dalit, they came from a remote part of it. The family of the girls have been visited by the women’s organization including a representative from the All India Democratic Women’s Association. These people are referred to as the joint fact-finding team.
Lakhimpur Kheri: The police made insinuations
It was said in the statement of the girls that they were abducted but the police said they went willingly. It is a bitter thing that the police did not want to agree with the girls but the family stood firm. Looking at the law, in the case of minors, there was no consent. In the end, the police told the girl’s family that they can’t help.
It is saddening that the police could say such a thing to a family that is in a traumatised position.
The daily girls were seen to be raped and murdered in Lakhimpur Kheri. The case was a severe one as the BJP leaders blamed the victims instead of the people that committed such a crime.
The situation in Lakhimpur Kheri is not the first record in India and it is said it has now become the culture of Indian leaders to blame the victims and protect the evildoers.
It is so shocking that the leaders who do this hold an important position in society.
The people that were raped and murdered in Lakhimpur Kheri, we hope they are consoled as the police have said they can do nothing about it to the girls in the Dalit families.
