what do u mean by that?
I request you all , as responsible and concerned individuals, to come up and give your opinion about this issue and how it should be dealt with. What kind of punishment you feel will be best for those 6 men ? I felt Open Study is a good platform to discuss this issue , not only because there are people from different cultures and nationality , but also because Open Study is all about learning and imparting education. And friends, education is not just about mugging up formulas , equations , birth dates and death dates of rulers , analyzing investments etc , but also about behaving in a civilized manner ( retaining some humanity in your very soul). Education is about the freedom to express your views , dress up the way you like , and live the way you want. So please speak up !!!!!
man that is so sad it just makes me feel so sick inside that poor girl :( as for those 6 people that did that to her i believe that they need to be locked in a small cell for the rest of there life and never see the light of day ever again
But do you really think that life imprisonment will act as a strong deterrent to prevent such cases in the future ? Well I do not agree with you. In India , men are casual and easy going with such issues ; they commit such crimes because they have no fear of the law and they have this notion of getting away with it easily. Superficially , life imprisonment sounds good , as death penalty is for once and gives "momentary pain" but life imprisonment makes the culprit suffer each day , each second. However , life imprisonment also increases the scope of getting out of the jail somewhere in the future; in a country like India , where rape is a bailable offense , I dont think it would be a very difficult thing to do. The strictest punishment in India is "death penalty". And for such a gruesome act , the Indian govt is still not sure whether to give a death sentence or not . Very disappointing. The young girl is battling for her life in Safdarjung hospital , New Delhi. Her intestines have been removed and doctors have said that she will never be able to digest food in the future , "if she survives" . The next 10 days are still very crucial for her. She has been on and off the ventilator , and is speaking via writing/actions. She is enduring this pain for what ? For being a girl ? The issue today is much more than a " rape " ; its about the increasing domination of the "patriarchal" society , the rising trend of gangrape ( united we stand , divided we fall attitude ), the "fear free" attitude of the mass and an "unsafe" society. This incidence took place on Sunday night , and the very next morning , a 3 year old girl was sexually assaulted by her teacher. Horrendous ! Eve teasing is a daily routine , and rapes have become a culture these days. Last year India recorded a total of 600 rapes. But I believe there would be many more , since many go unnoticed and unrecorded because of the social pressure. When such cases become rampant , and govt fails to take any stringent measure , I believe the best way is to leave the culprits in the hands of the public. India witnesses honour killing , sex selective abortions , women oppression in work field , and on top of that "rapes".Enough. I believe this incidence is a wake up call for the Indian govt. A revolution has to come.Now or never.
Its my sincere request to @Preetha , CEO OS , who is an Indian herself , to please express her views on this horrendous act . Mam your words matter a lot . Also I request @cshalvey and other administrators to please come forward . India has witnessed a great outrage from media , general public , ngo , ministers. And along with them , facebook and twitter , have played an essential role in condemning this act and in supporting the victim. So why OS is behind ?
@nincompoop Iam just asking for everyone's point of view. In India , each news channel is highlighting this point that "what kind of punishment " will be apt for the culprits. And same is the case with FB and Twitter. You feel anything is wrong with this ?
Why are you asking in feedback?
@Hr.Tboy this is not ridiculus...its the situation persisting in the world..I am an Indian..but i am really not admiring the law and judicial system.. we all have reached an age to think about social issues and we must..
The judiciary is not doing anything..our punishments are too small or no punishment at all..these rapers will be declared innocent as they did it on alcohol gang and they will again walk free in the crowd..Our punishments are not strict..I really fell sorry to her..India,its time to raise voice
@Hr.Tboy , do you even know what you are talking about ? Today that 23 year old is suffering because when "trillions" of girls were raped no one took stringent measures. She battling for life , and even if she survives , she will be nothing more than a living corpse. And you call it a ridiculous discussion ! Hopeless !
@anjali_pant India need women like you to raise voice against these crimes...well done
Thanks @Krishnadas for your support . I guess since you are an Indian , you know whats going here in India , but I approached OS , thinking that here there are people of different cultures , and they would support this cause. But all in vain
yes I know...In this country our voice is not heared
If the culprit in the first crime was really punished,these crimes wouldnt have happened
@nincompoop sorry for the wrong figure. Its just that Iam really shaken by this incident. And yes you are right all must come together to fight this battle . But I guess you are not aware about the present scenario of this case in India .The nation has been united , and all have come out on the street. It feels great to see that humanity still prevails in India.
In my state Kerala,the situation is too worse
Ok you must be aware , but what I want to say is that , as far as I know this country , I dont think life imprisonment will fetch anything. There should be nothing less than a death sentence. And yes if Indian govt can add something to that , I'll be more than glad.
Even death sentence is less..With death everything goes out in few seconds..He should know the pain that girl suffered
@Krishnadas I know , although Kerela is ahead in literacy rates , actual "literacy" is way behind. Really sad ! I hope atleast this sometime something happens. Yes even I agree that death sentence is nothing. But then the worst kind of punishment that Indian govt offers is "death sentence" , so no other option. You know I read Salman Khan 's opinion about this , and he said ,that if law permits , the culprits must be beaten till death. I hope somewhere in future , this kind of law comes into action.
This kind of punishing happens in Bihar
There was one a Krishnapriya rape case in Kerala and her father killed the rapist on the spot with gun
@yololol , sorry for late reply . This is not as such a "feedback" thing. Its about what one feels when such cases happen. Iam not saying that such cases never happened in any other country , they do. Infact it happens everywhere. But in India , this issue has raised questions , firstly because , it was a "gruesome" act , and secondly because time and again , these things have happened , but no stringent measures were taken. The guts of people have increased , and so have the cases .Its high time for India . But this is not just about a "rape case" in India . Its about the deterioration in values . Humanity no longer prevails in this world. This post , is a tribute , from my side , from you all , to that courageous lady , who is fighting for her life , telling her parents that she wants to live. I hope you all will support this cause.
@Krishnadas , the incidence you told , must have set an example for all. You know no one wants to break laws , but since the judicial system has been deteriorating , what will one do ? A father has no option other than shooting the man himself. Hats Off !
There was a case like this I think in Cali a number of years ago and the girl was 16 and there was literally a crowd just watching but no one did anything. And supposedly "no one knew what to do" I was like wow people. You are all just pathetic.
Exactly @yololol ! Thats what I mean , that people have become indifferent . No humanity , nothing. So did the culprits get punishment ?
yes the only action the government took-And was the right one-was to let that father free
Idk I didn't follow up it was pretty much over my head at that point I think I was like 12ish.
@yololol thanks for joining us
You're welcome haha @Anjali_pant it's rebeccaskell94 btw lol
@yololol I dont know about other countries , but in India girls do live in great fear . Their parents dont allow them to go alone , to dress the way they like , to go anywhere after 7 ! This is really pathetic. @yololol thanks a lot. Oh rebecca , my old "gold" friend ! Nice to meet you after so long ! :-)
girl children are not safe even in houses..there had been 'Father raped daughter'cases also..How pathetic!
@Krishnadas , honestly Iam really disappointed with OS's response. When after such a horrifying incidence , people are behaving in such an indifferent manner , I can well imagine , why such incidences take place . Really disheartening.
@Krishnadas yes "fathers raping daughters" , is another horrific category. How can anyone act so "insane" !
where are you from?
Delhi , India
Guys it's not all that uncommon, I don't mean to sound rude but in America it happens ALL the time. :/ It's sad and it sucks, I know, but it's what happens and unfortunately there isn't but so much we can do about it. :(
@yololol at least we should do this
Oh and before you guys get mad at me and judge me, I was abused for 6 years so, I actually know, I'm not just talking to say my own opinion. c:
But I read recently , that chemical castration reduced the no of cases by 44 % in foreign countries.
lol omg I have never heard of that. It sounds...interesting.
@yololol to whom did you said that?
I was responding to the chemical castration thing.
@yololol not that!that dont judge me kinda thing
Oh! I just don't know you as much, I know anjali but I just wanted you guys to know I'm not like some heartless person, who's stating opinions when they don't know anything about it. So just to the people I don't know.
thanks to all
@yololol sorry got disconnected . First of all Iam really sorry to hear what happened with you. And we really people like you to come up. And yes you were never rude , infact as sweet as always . Thanks for your great support.
* want people
so who do commit this raping on to girls?
Iam sorry , I did not understand what you meant. Could you please elaborate.
u said that millions of indian girls are beeing raped on. i asked the question above!
see "millions /trillions" does not mean literally millions and trillions. Its a way of expressing grief. And honestly Iam still not clear with your question.
ok... that fact can happen in any where... all of the humans are not good people. what we can do? these discussions cant change the world!
This is entirely unrelated to OpenStudy or its users. As such, this is off topic for OSF. Closing thread.
With this action of yours , @farmdawgnation , not just Iam disappointed , but I guess entire Indian nation must be disappointed .This very moment Iam deactivating my OS account. Thanks a lot !
First of all @nincompoop my message was not in response to your message, rather it was directed to farmdawgnation. So if you feel you could be of any help to me , then please tell me how to deactivate my account.
Iam not able to find any link to deactivate my account. Please help.
There is no link. You send us an email, and we can permaban you.
