A Candle Light Vigil for the Rape Victim

The pic shows just one of the many Candle light Vigils for the terrible tragedy that has unfolded over the last few days in India.

The brutal gang rape of a young girl in Delhi has resulted in shock, despair and shame on what it means to be Indian in a country that can’t treat its daughters right. Countless reports of rape have been pouring in from other parts of India validating the view that this country just doesn’t keep its promise when it comes to women’s safety and their freedom.

The patronizing reaction of the Central Government and the Home Minister have only contributed to revulsion and disbelief on how the Rulers of this country view themselves as Royalty. Peaceful protesters have been assaulted with water canons and lathi wielding policemen.

The death of the rape victim has set in a solemn and hopefully introspective mood throughout India as we enter 2013.

  1. Unfortunately the government of India is what it is.
    The fight to protect people from such heinous crimes must do not stop.
    For this, the people must fight alone, however, the struggle should take.
    If the perpetrators of the crimes are not brought to justice and not properly punished, people of India you must fight for your rights!

  2. I am saddened by the news. When the victim was flown to Singapore, I was so happy that my country could somehow help. Unfortunately, God loves her more and took her to Heaven. May she rest in peace 😉
